How do I download the alert sound files? If I try to drag & drop I wind up with an internet shortcut file that launches the page where the file is located. When I click on the file to attempt to save it, it launches Quicktime player and unless I'm willing to buy thier upgrade I can't save the file. Help, any advice would be appreciated.
on a PC (Macs i have no idea) right click on the attactment and save as target.. I think there are some FAQ about it too .. do a search for downloading Sound Files..
Hope this helps
When I clicked on the REST_AREA.mp3 sound file the Windows Media Player came up and played the sound bite. From the Media Player "File" menu, I clicked on "Save As" and saved the file to my GPS POI folder. I'll rename it there to match the rest area POI files I have saved already. I always test the proximity alerts and sounds with the simulate mode of my nuvi 650.
Hope that helps.
Quicktime player should be a free app. At least enough for you to hear the sound. If you want the sound, click on it from the "alert sounds library" page, that will bring you to a page with just that sound. If you want that sound right click and "save as" or "save link as" or "save target as" (depending on your browser).

How do I load Custom Alert sounds for POIs on my GPSr?
Thanks much for the info, "save target as..." is how it's done using QuickTime.
