OK, if you install a fox.exe into the poi loader, with the idea to add wav sound to your poi folder, yes this work perfect.....BUT if you want to add Mp3 music to your older garmin 350 (Note the 350 is compatible with mp3). Do you have to remove the Fox.exe from the poi loader before install the mp3 o is OK.?????
No you don't have to remove SOX.exe if you are doing MP3s for your older GPS.
but the answer to your question is no, you do not need to remove sox.exe for POI loader in order to use the mp3 player for music.
You can even leave sox.exe installed if you want to use mp3 files for alerts. It uses sox.exe if your alert file is a .wav, does not use it if the alert file is a .mp3. I am not sure which it would use if you had both .mp3 and .wav with the same name (such as Redlight-Cameras.mp3 and Redlight-Cameras.wav).
Even if your Garmin can play .mp3's, it can still play .wav's with sox.exe.
Basically, if you already have a .wav sound file, I wouldn't bother redoing the POI with a .mp3. I keep them all .wav since I have one that does play .mp3 and one that doesn't. This was I can load the same POI's to both units.
Did you mean SOX NOT Fox
The fact that you are reading this shows that you are interested in having "Custom POIs" on your unit. And you would probably agree - if you have an older unit that has a .mp3 player - that some day you will be required to get a newer unit. That new unit will not likely have a .mp3 player.
SO - using .wav files now is a smart option even if you could use .mp3.
The AT&T site a lot of people use to make their own sound files - http://www2.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php -
gives you .wav files to begin with. Why not learn to use them - it will get you ready for the future.
you need a particular version of sox.exe. Get it from http://www.poi-factory.com/images/csv/sox-14-0-1.zip.
Unzip the file and put sox.exe into the folder where POI Loader.exe resides. This is usually C:\Program Files\Garmin\POI Loader. That's all you have to do to use a .wav file as an audio alert.
To add to jgermann's suggestions.
The majority of the available audio sounds to download at the POI Factory POI's are in mp3 format.
If you decide not to create your own.wav files from the At&T site, you can convert the Factory mp3's to .wav easily with a free online coverter. No software to load just visit the site and convert.
Thank you every one, for the info...
