Since my unit does not have mp3 is there a way for me to add something so I can use the additional voices for poi's?
go to the link below and check out what Charles has to say, he has it all laid out for you there.
You can use wav files for custom poi alerts.
a. Download the latest PoiLoader file at http://www8.garmin.com/products/poiloader/ .
b. Download Sox Exe at http://rapidshare.com:80/files/139638423/sox.zip .
c. After un-zipping Sox Exe file place it in your Garmin folder where the PoiLoader exe file is located on the computer.
d. The wav file for alerts will be named the same as the CSV or GPX file except for the extensions.
e. You can make your own wav files by going to http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php and typing in what you want it to say or use a program to convert mp3 files to wav. When using the conversion it must be saved as PCM, 44.100 kHZ., 16 bit, Mono. Wav files are also on site for download.
Edit.BobDee.We must have pulled the trigger almost at the same time.
Please excuse my slowness. After I download and unzip the sox do I just move it over to the poi loader file folder and thats it.
Just place the sox.exe file in the same folder that poi loader is in.
Just remember to use .wav files in place of mp3 files. The actual process of loading sounds/images/poi files remains the same.
My son recently purchased a 265wt, and we converted some of my mp3's to wav and followed the instructions given in this thread and everything worked perfectly.
Yes.Just make sure it is in the same folder as the poiloader exe in the Garmin folder on your computer.Then just install the wav files you want for the alerts and add them to your custom poi files.Make sure to name them the same as he csv or gpx file except the extensions.The biggest problems with the alerts and icons not working are the files not being named the same except for extensions and having double extensions. Double-check each of them. The best way to prevent double extensions is to go to your folder options in the control panel and click view then find hide extensions for known file types and remove the check mark. You will need to use the manual mode for poiloader to set the alerts unless you have files with alerts built in or using key words.
Thanks to everyone for the advice will try tonight
While you can use .wav files for poi alerts, I assume there is no way to use them for just playing music, like your mp3's.
You assume correctly... sorry.
Thanks did all this and have tried that att site works great. But sox file in cause it told me i had to and thats not problem for sure.
