i'm looking at magellan 3250
Crossover gives two soft beeps when approaching initial and 2 loud dings as last warning. User defines distances for warnings
how to I enable this on my 3250? traffic?
It sucks as compared to the Garmin. Reason being; is that if you are not paying attention to the sounds that are being emitted from the magellan; you wouldn't know that a red light camera is ahead. At least with the Garmin, if you miss the warning sound you can still see from the display, that there is a red light camera ahead! I'm talking a Nuvii 250W as compared to the Maestro 4210.
Your Magellan will say whatever your category is named. My redlight category is named "Red Light Cameras Ahead". The Magellan girl reads the category name and then says it. You determine if a beep or chime is appropriate for you and set that as well
Your Magellan will say whatever your category is named.
That depends on the model.
If you have one that does TTS (text to speach) and it "says" the street you are about to turn on to, then it should say the POI category too.
If, OTOH, you have one like mine that only says "Right turn in 500 feet", then it won't announce the POI's either.
It also depends on the firmware model, too. When I got my 2200T, the firmware version only gave the beeps. As of the last couple of updates, it also speaks the category name. And that's fun, because you can program in curse words.
I need to try that.
Haha, that's awesome, I didn't even know my Magellan could read category names out-loud.
Since your model is in the Maestro line, which the 2200T is not, yours probably can't.
Do you have your model number right in your profile?
I didn't know there were any 2xxx models in the Maestro line.
I have the 3225.. it has text-to-speech, so I assumed it had this feature as well. Does it not?
I don't know for sure since mine doesn't do TTS (unfortunately) but I suspect not.
Your model number IS wrong in your profile.
My Magellan Maestro 3225 is telling me (text-to-speach) the Category Name of a POI.
