I've took my TTG today and I agree with a previous poster that the voice warnings are a bit low in terms of volume...

Could we have the volume up please ?

As promised the other day. We have been working on the Palm version for the Spoken POI alerts and this is now ready. Details can be found on the Download page (Click here).

We have also fixed a problem identified on the Nokia 6600 version of the voice files. These have been re-released and are in the same download location.

The voice commands are great - Thanks :D

I wanted to play with them myself - perhaps add the nice BMW-like 'bong' from the TomTom sounds to the front of each voice warning... Maybe record my own voice or something amusing from TV or DVD....


I got Viftool from Alex Graff (nice man- very helpful) and got oggenc too - but I can't figure out how to create a .vif file from all the ogg files so I can 'join' it to data.chk with viftool... Has anyone figured this out yet? Can you help me please?

Perhaps someone has had time to try out a complete replacement of the voice files (dataxx.chk) to make a custom set of voice instructions? If I understood Alex correctly, this is no harder than making custom voice warnings for POIs, though I heard a rumour that some of the dataxx.chk files are compressed and can't be used. Anyone got experience of this to share?

Tim

Not sure where your problems lie. It's a pretty simple process.

- Create your own OGG files, make sure you have all the required files (59 I believe)
- run them through the viftool join process
- replace an existing vif/chk pair with your creations. (There is a "feature" in TomTom that completely ignores the other information in the vif file - the voice names and silhouettes are hard coded in TomTom Navigator. So take the Jane voice, replace with your creation, and then switch the voice to "Jane" - this will now be yours.

The difficulties that Alex describes only affect the unpacking of existing dataxx.chk files - since you create your own this is a non-issue for you.

Thanks Lutz

I think I'm still missing something... I have no vif file to start with (i'm using TTN for Palm, not TT Go). I only have dataxx.dat language files and the data.dat file that contains the POI proximity warning noises

I know how to create the ogg files but not how to make them into a vif file - so I can't do the join process.

As I understand it, when I have made the vif file, I can then take the data12.dat file (for example) and do this:

"viftool.exe join 12 "Français - Catherine" <myviffile>.vif"

Is this right? Is the comment text important or can I use anything I like (e.g. "English - Fred") even if I am overwriting the "Français - Catherine" file?

Appreciate your help Smile

Tim

1) any text will do.
2) you do NOT need a vif file. it gets created by VIFTOOL

This is not working for me.

First copy the data.chk to my computer
Then copy the new "2852_new.data.cht" to TT GO
Then rename that file into data.chk

Then unplug the TT go and test the sounds : Old sounds are still there ?!?

What is the exact added value of this ?
That the standard sounds are replaced by another set of fixed sounds ?!?

Thanks.
