I have a Nuvi 660. How can I seperate the MP3 files to play by type or artist and play them on my unit?
Your GPS categorizes the songs according to the info in the ID3 tags. If you don't fill in those fields, the songs won't appear in the categories.
iTunes and any number of other programs allow you to fill in the tags in groups, or, in Windows, you can do the same thing. Just select the file(s) (you can do multiples) and right click for properties. Go to the Properties/Summary/Advance and fill in the blanks.
Using the search function to see if the topic has been discussed in the past, if you had you would have found this:
Just trying to get the new and old community members to use search.
Miss POI can you merge this into:
Use Media Monkey to set the tags, then the Album, Artist, Genre will show up on the GPS unit MP3 player screens.
This is completely separate from Playlists. Playlists are not needed for this function to work properly.
I have now merged these two threads, thanks Bobdee for pointing this out.
Well, now my post above makes no sense because the original poster in thread in which I replied didn't have anything to do with Playlists. Oh well. Hopefully, they will get it sorted out or will repost.
Ok now I am thoroughly confused, was I misadvised about merging those threads?
Is this fixed now?
Use Google to go to "ODDGRAVITY". They have a very good utility for what you need. They would like a donation but it is basically free. Also go to a site "AUDACITY" for a fine audio processing program. Also,as you gain experience you will want to get an "MP3 Gain" processing utility to equalize loudness characteristics to minimize volume adjustments between various tracks and albums.
Thanks, Miss Poi. All straight now.
I think a lot of confusion may have been avoided had the individual asking the advice, been supplied answers along with the advice to search. I think some of us are too quick to point people to search the site before attempting to answer their queries. Of course, if you don't have a clue about the subject, telling them to search right off the cuff is one way to get your five cents worth in, I suppose.
Wish I had the mp-3 option....sorry can't help, but i'm certain some one on this site will be able to help.
And I'm happy with it. And adding free mp3 from http://chemp3.com to my player playlist all the time.
