Hello,
I used to get audio alerts by mp3 on my Zumo in the car but it was getting long in the tooth so I bought a Drive 52 and can see the icon for cameras from this GPS dtatbase but it doesn't speak to me. Anyone else had this?

Your Drive can't use mp3 files so that is probably the issue. You need wav sound files and a utility called sox.exe

Look at Kremmens spoon fed version for help https://www.pocketgpsworld.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=97158

Thank you. Nice and detailed. I guess that just having sox sitting in that folder works some magic? All loaded and ready to test in the car....

Set the GPS into simulation mode and test from the armchair before you go out
