    Default Excellent guide carppy terminated

    sorry -
    but the way Arnie is made
    reminds me on The Simpson's Itchy & Scratchy & Poochie Show -
    where Homer's voice is eventually lousy overdubbed to finish
    him and the dog off...

    Will the voice files (text to speech) of a Garmin Nuvi 1300 work on my Windows Mobiles phones that have Garmin Mobile XT > Is getting TTS *.vpm files the only requirement for having audible street names in Garmin Mobile XT or it just won't work?

    Thanks in advance!

    Default to PCM or not to PCM?

    @catymag,

    new vpm file (PCM 22khz, 8 Bit mono 176kbps) stays mute
    went back to the guide and I am stuck due to this contradiction:

    "...it is recommended that you choose this format: WAV (Microsoft 4 bit IMA ADPCM,...) ... I couldn’t get my file to work with that ADPCM setting"

    so, is ADPCM recommendable at all or not and are your PCM settings
    (352kbps, 22050hz, mono, 16bit) suitable for a nuvi 200 and c510?

    regards
    Damian

    Default no answer is an answer

    anyway - on a NUVI 200 those settings DO NOT work at all
    Microsoft 4 bit IMA ADPCM, quality: 89 kbps, 22050 Hz, mono, 16 bit
    (file size 848kb)

    error description:
    after calculating the device (connected through usb) hanged itself
    several times up, no reaction to any display pushes.
    it was not possible to switch it off permanently instead it rebooted
    to either stall on loading maps or after calculating again.
    after disconnecting it from power supply the switching off worked
    properly. changing the language back to a genuine one brought it
    back to working condition.


    regards

    Default for those who care

    solution found:

    seems to be an error in the guide -
    there is either a Microsoft ADPCM
    or an IMA ADPCM, not both in one.

    analyzing one of the wav-files voice_editor
    extracts using Windows Properties names the latter.

    used Cool Edit Pro, resampled the Microsoft ADPCM
    files into IMA ADPCM (89 kbps, 22050 Hz, mono, 16 bit)
    and got the Nuvi working.

    regards
    Damian

    ps
    it really annoying - codecs, Java, C and so forth,
    Micrcos's own custom (i.e. licence) variations are
    often polluted to uselessness...

    Sorry guys, I've been MIA for a long time. I found this thread again while looking for answers for the newer garmin devices (1200, 1300, etc.). Apparently they won't take the old .vpm format... they only take tts vpms. Unfortunately I don't know how to fix that, but I'm sure someone will look into it.

    As for audio formats, yup, it's a real pain in the butt... I had to test the files over and over, and trying different formats. Sometimes they worked, sometimes not.
    Damian, maybe you can get Arnie to record his voice for us with all the gps commands, huh? It took a lot of time (A LOT!) to get that done and working... I was just having fun, and I did it for free. I still think it's pretty funny. But it's obvious that the tone would never be the same for all files, since the recordings were taken from his dialogues in movies and speeches.

    is there a voice editor that will open the new apparently encrypted voices?

    I want to get the new avatar voice for my touch pro 2 running mobile xt

    but it won't work (silence) and I can't open it in the editor.
