Wav files not to proper format

 

Hi trying to upload some custom POI files. Everything goes well until the end. Then in the POI loader it says congratulations you have successfully installed you custom api files on your device. Then in the box below it says unable to convert.wav to the proper format therefore the audio file was not transferred. Not sure what this means. Thank you

Download and install sox.exe

Download and install sox.exe on the computer. See charlesd45's FAQ:

http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730

Then POI Loader will be able to convert .wav files to the proper format.

I do have the Sox file in

I do have the Sox file in the same file folder. Maybe there is something wrong with the Sox file.

Sox.exe not in correct location .

After un-zipping Sox.Exe, you'll need to place the sox.exe application file into the same folder on the computer where PoiLoader exe is located.The FAQ will guide you through the process. It also includes the correct sox.exe to use.

Download And Install Sox.Exe

Thanks dobs108!

Just got a new PC after 12 years and completely forgot this has to be done for Garmin POILoader to convert WAV sound files. I unzipped the files from charlesd45's FAQ into the POILoader directory and now everything works like a charm again. smile

Which version SOX?

Make sure you have the correct version of the SOX file. POILoader will only work with an older version. 14.1 - I think. I'm 75 so don't hold me to that version number. Somebody here will know for sure.

Guess what? I completely forgot sox.exe after formatting and doing a clean install of Windows 10 until you just reminded me! We haven't needed the GPS lately!

It's 14.0.1, not to be confused with 14.1.0 if memory serves me right. It's available here at the POI Factory.

Latest link to sox.exe

sox.exe 14.0.1

The Garmin link mentioned in charlesd45's FAQ no longer has sox.exe

I don't want to download it from sites around the internet. Here is a known good source:

Sox.

The FAQ http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730 has the correct Sox. Look under B. Here is a video that may help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsJTUmvb6_o

You are right

Charles, you are right. I was looking at A instead of B.
