bmp files not displaying / no custom sound

 

I downloaded the dunkin donuts poi along with bmp and mp3 file to my nuvi 2577. I get the alert (text inside the poi file is displayed) and I get a generic alert sound. Any reason Im not seeing the bmp file or hearing the mp3 file? I have ensured they are all named Dunkin Donuts.mp3 Dunkin Donuts.bmp.
I do have the sox file in same directory as the poi loader.
Thanks!

MP3 will not work for voice alerts on the nuvi 2577.You need sox.exe and wav file see http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25730

The biggest problems with the alerts and icons not working are the files not being named the same except for extensions and having double extensions. Double-check each of them. See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/25721

DD wav file

I have this custom wav file for my Dunkin Donuts POI that used to work but the last time I updated my POIs, the POI loader said there was a problem and it has not worked since.

Please

run POI Loader one more time and write down exactly what the message is. That will help us determine the next steps.

thanks

will do it this week. right now we are in the middle of a snowstorm and my Garmin is in my car.

I got the wav alert to work

I got the wav alert to work properly by making a new wave file
at https://www.text2speech.org/. The only thing I dont like about it is its kind of hard to hear it (maybe I am getting old).
I turned up the volume on the 2577 but its still kind of muffled.
The bmp packaged with the dunkin donuts doesn't display so I may have to start one from scratch. I also kind of freaked out that the alert was not working after I put the new wave file on it but come to find out the csv file is outdated. I had to add my local DD to the csv file, all good now......Thanks!

Glad to hear you got the voice alert to work. You may want to try http://www.cross-plus-a.com/balabolka.htm to improve your custom sound file.

You can also change the gain(volume level) for the wav using http://www.goldwave.com/release.php or http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/

Did you let Mahoney know about the missing location?
