Installing mp3 to voice POI nearby

 

Where do i put mp3 or .wav into my Nivi 2598 to get "shell station nearby" to be voiced when approaching?

wav

TheNuvi 2598 will need sox.exe and wav file not mp3 . See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730 for instructions. Video version https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsJTUmvb6_o

WAV files

Only older nuvis can use mp3 sound files. Newer nuvis can only use wav sound files. However, the wav file will not be loaded into the GPS using POI Loader unless you download and place sox.exe in the folder on the PC containing poiloader.exe

Text to way program?

AT&t used to have an excellent online program. You could type in a phrase, choose a variety of voices and end up with a very natural wav file that you could save.

This was a test site and AT&T no longer offers free access.

Can anyone suggest a good "free" alternative that sounds natural?
