  • Navmute works great with GMPC

    If you use GMPC with RR and want to pause your music while GMPC give direction a little program call navmate works great, follow the included readme.txt. I had to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package before it would work for me. It can be found at:

      Wow and it's been around for a while too. Have you had any issues with it at all?

        It works good for me. There are other commands you can use to lower the volume instead of the pause/resume that i use.

          Sweet! I can't wait to get my car back and try it out. Thanks for posting the find... never would have thought to try that otherwise.

            Works well for me too. The only issue I have is that it's like GMPC triggers the "mute" for a split second again after it's finished talking. eg. I get the mute while it's talking, sound is then restored to normal, then cuts out for a split second and is restored again. Nothing too annoying but it's there.

            PS. I say "mute" because I'm using "setvol;WINAMP;90", "setvol;WINAMP;180". I like that better than a hard mute or pause.

              I can confirm it works with GPMC in Win7 too. I have the same 'mute' problem as described above but it's nothing major.

              Although, GPMC's sound is so low. Do you guys have that problem?

                    here you go

                    also for the issue where it does a double mute on resume, if you put a WAIT;1 after the resume command the issue seems to go away. the disadvantage of that is when garmin wants to talks back to back, the NAVPAUSE command won't fire if the 1 second has not passed but i'd rather live with that happening every once in a while than the alternative.

                        I set mine to lower the music volume instead of pausing it, now I don't notice any double-muting or double-lowering (if it even does it anymore) which is much better. I also like it this way because sometimes GMPC will speak just to say something obvious like 'Keep right', and it gets annoying when it keeps pausing the music.

                        Although, when the volume isn't being cranked, can hardly even hear what GMPC is saying.

                          there's not really a good solution to the gmpc low volume problem except to lower your music player's volume and crank up the system and wave volume in xp. i upgraded my setup to windows 7 for various reasons and it's mixer has independent volume controls for each program so i set everything to 40% except for gmpc which i set to 65% and bluesoleil at 100%.

                            Hmm I might have to do that. Except I have my fronts turned down to 60% because otherwise it clips when I turn up the volume. And there's no independent volume control for individual speakers just overall.

                            Although I think I might just be able to turn down the gain on my amp instead (dunno why I didn't do that in the first place).

                            Will see how it goes.
