OK, I am able to use the POI loader and load the all three files with the same name other than the extensions '.csv', '.bmp', and '.mp3' to correctly make custom POI's work with my Garmin.
However, somehow I've forgotten how to be able to download (or copy) the sounds that others contribute to this site as 'sounds' that can be used along with the POI's.
I can make them play easily enough, but just cannot seem to be able to figure out how to 'copy' them over to my Mac so I can then actually use those sounds.
I don't know if I have done this in the past, since I have a lot of MP3 extensions with older POI"s I downloaded, or if those had the sounds with the files I downloaded.
Any tips or clues would be fantastic.
When you see attachment.Right click on it and select save as.This may be a little different for mac but once you right click on it.You will be able to select the right save ###
The poi files are downloaded separate from the sound files. In other words sound files are not included as part of the file. You would have to get them separate. As Charled45 stated it is usually a "right click and save as" or whatever is similar on a mac.
I thought I read somewhere else on here that for the sound files to work with the POI's that they had to be in the ".wav" format. If so, you would have to convert the mp3 sound files to wav.
The .wav files have to have the same name as the POI file with the exception of the extension which would be .wav and the sound files stored in the same location as the POI's.
Someone correct me if I got this wrong.
Depending on the model of the unit it would be either mp3 or wav. The op has a 760 and I do not know which one it is. All the other info is correct.
I use MP3 audio on my Nuvi 760 and they work fine.
