  • Iguidance questions

    I upgraded from routis 2004 to iguidance 2.0 assuming it would do the following this for me that i've seen people talk about on this board
    * Mute the music when giving voice directions
    *provide easier to understand voice directions

    Aside from the maps being a bit more clear. Its doin the same thing routis did. Even with full volume i can barely hear the voice directions. If i turn music off the voice is so choppy that it can barely be understood. Half the time the voice directions mute themselves for no reason. Is there some software i'm missing to allow these things to work right?

    Just out of curiousity... did you get your copy of iGuidance off EBay? iNav is currently investigating an/some EBay seller(s) for selling pirated copies of iGuidance. One posibility. I have no problems with my sound.

      I know that when I used MediaCar (Winamp), the volume of the music slightly decreased. Does anyone know if this is possible with Frodoplayer (WMP)?

            VIA 800 mobo 512 SDRam 60 GB, optimized for car use (no unneccessary services), XP SP2. Same symptoms occur whether or not i'm running it stand alone or embedded in frodoplayer. Oh yea i'm running the Pharos usb gps (com 3, 4800 baud) that came with streets and trips 2005, sirf mode. The actual routing works fine and i always have at least 7/9 satelites.

              Hi, I've been using Routis2004 and voice directions works fine. One day voice directions raised music volume when it speaks but it was fixed by fiddling around volume setting. It might be your sound setting( wave level vs master level, hardware acceleration not fully engaged). My two cents. Good luck.

              Btw, How do you like iguidance 2.0 vs Routis2004? iguidance 2.0 looks much nicer.

                I'm not sure if Iguidance actually mutes the music. I think I remember reading that people were adjusting the winamp preamp down and the wave volume up so that the voice could be heard over the music. The Destinator 3 Frontend will actually mute music playback-I'm not sure that Iguidance does. Sounds like the voice directions aren't working like they should-maybe a problem with Iguidance and your soundcard. I'd contact Iguidance to see what they say: http://www.inavcorp.com/ Have they sent you the theme.ini file to tweak colors and font sizes? I've seen some of the changes that other users have made to make the maps a little more readable-definately work looking into when you get the file. Another place to ask where I've seen them respond is over at gpspassion.com in the Iguidance subforum: http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/d....asp?CAT_ID=12
                Good Luck-I hope you get this sorted out.

                  Why did you assume that it muted the music when giving voice directions?

                  The voice direction are pretty easy to understand. Either you have something wrong with your software or your hearing. "Turn Right in 500 feet" followed by a ding that notify's you right before the turn is pretty damn clear to me .

                    It works for Frodoplayer too.

                    I never tried fooling with the preamp in winamp but the ideal solution would be to lower the music while keeping the voice volume loud. I don't know how this is acomplished.

                      Does it do it automatically? If so, is there any way to adjust it?

                        anyone figure out a way to have it mute winamp and then un mute winamp in Iguidance?

                        Otherwise that is a deal breaker for Iguidance reguardless of what it can out -do in some ways

                          Take a look at this thread: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=41016
                          A user pretty much had the same question. Lowering the volume in CF when iG is giving guidance. Read post #2 that I wrote. This will NOT mute WinAmp like you request but should work much better. Instead, it will drop the master volume, play the guidance at a normal level, and then raise the volume. Makes for a pretty cool effect.
