Thank for the input for the SOX post discussion.
Yes, two great ones "Pwohlrab & Charlesd45"
Hornbyp was the one that got the ball rolling on soxe.exe and wav files, when someone asked about getting voice alerts on a Garmin Nuvi 200 series. Units that does not have a mp3 player. See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/13429#:~:text=by%20all%20acc...... and http://www.poi-factory.com/node/13041 . Member, Gary A was the first to post a download location for the sox.exe . See http://www.poi-factory.com/node/16728 .That was back in 2008.
Well-done, Pwohlrab & Charlesd45! Keep up the good work!
It is always fun to go back and review those early days when we were all learning. As far as I know Garmin has never documented or acknowledged this feature of the non-MP3 devices. It makes me think some programmer way back when put in this "easter egg" and leaked it to a GPS enthusiast who exposed it in the forums.
Congratulations and thanks!
I also like to look back on the old post history. I always worry when a members calls Garmin about the sox.exe and wav files. Since it is not a documented feature. One day they may pull the plug with a change that will torpedo our voice alerts. So far a long track record.
For your contributions here at the POI Factory!
Do two COWs make a herd?? Enjoy your week in the pasture!
And thanks to Charlesd45 for finding the actual data vs my "it was researched and we can't use updated versions".
Congratulations Pwohlrab on your COW award. I had a nuvi 265 at the time and still do, but passed it over to the wife. When it was posted about the sox.exe and wav by Hornbyp I jumped right on it. Was so excited to get the voice alerts at that time.
Thank you both for your contributions and kudos on your COW awards!
Congratulations to both of you. I only fairly recently learned about sox.exe when I got my Drivesmart 55, since all of my previous units had mp3 players and didn't need it - glad to know not to update, thanks to your forum contributions. Enjoy your week in the C.O.W. spotlight!
