How do I record an .mp3 sound file

 

Hi, I have a Garmin 660 and just downloaded the traffic camera alerts, but would love to have an .mp3 sound file to match the factory female British voice that I use everyday stating "Caution, Red Light Camera Ahead". Can someone tell me how to record or set it up? Thanks.

MP3 software

Just in case you do not have the MP3 software to convert your wavs to, here is what I use and it is FREE grin

http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows

But...you have to do another download for a file to have Audacity export to MP3, but it is really easy to do and this page also has the instructions on how to do it.

Audacity can record those sounds for you, too. It's got a fairly powerful recording function, as well as fairly powerful sound editing capability. All you need is a microphone (desktop mic, webcam, etc.). It's pretty sweet! smile

Great Free Sound File Converter

I found the Switch (sound) file converter to be excellent, and it's free.
