I have a Garmin 1450 and I was wondering if instead of changing the recalculating to something cute etc,can it be changed to just recalculate the course with out saying anything like the Magellan GPS do.
I have to admit the "Recalculating" prompt can be annoying some times, especially when you have to go around the 'calculated' route for a few blocks and at every corner you have to hear it.
You could just use a blank sound file.
Or a Homer Simpson type sound of simply "D'Oh!"
The Homer voice file?
Thank you could you explain how I do this on my Garmin 1450.
Download TTSVoiceEditor and then change "recalculating" to "..".
I changed me Nuvi from saying recalculating to "Come on Maxey, you can trust me, and it gives the riders in my van a kick when they hear it, so far no one has gotten tired of hearing a woman's voice correcting a man, go figure!!!
I have a Garmin and use American Jack as my "guide". I have changed "recalculating" to, "Bryan, you are lost again. Let me get you straightened out."
My wife uses American Samantha and I stick her name into the "... you are lost again...". I have changed some of Jack's other saying also.
When I decide to deviate from my route I find "recalculating" over and over annoying enough. I can't imagine changing it to one of these long phrases people are using. I guess if I rarely used the nüvi or rarely deviated from the suggested route it might be amusing for a short time but having to listen to a long phrase every time the unit recalculates would make me even crazier than I already am.
Just change it to something like "Darn" or "Oops", or any other appropriate four letter word.
A space character gives no sound on my 765T.
I just left the Recalculating line blank and it works just fine.
BTW, you might be interested in a another thread on Recalculating and other sayings people have changed on their units here:
Changed our to:
"Are you Lost Again??? -- Can't you follow directions??"
Thank you,how do you go about changing it.I have the the TTS Voice Editor downloaded problems from there even though instructions are written,I can't seem to find the file I need to delete.
