    IG3 turn by turn voice instructions

    I am currently running RR and IG3. When I enter a destination and NAV it I don't get voice turn by turn instructions (all the time). What I mean by all the time is some times I will go a hole trip without hearing any or 10 minutes into a trip it will start working. The funny thing is if I turn into a parking lot/go off a marked road IG3 will always tell me to "Find the nearest road". Just wondering if anyone has seen this before, I was thinking its related to a windows focus issue... any thoughts?

    Turn by Turn guidance and voice direction in iG has nothing to do with RR nor windows focus like you said.
    Normally, iG only "talks" when you are about 2 miles or approaching a turn and instruction for next turn after a turn.
    If iG show you "off road", it will always tell you to get to the nearest road because it can't calculate the route when you are "off road".

    I am aware of how IG's turn by turn instructions are suppost to work... What I am saying is it doesn't. The reason I mentioned the off road things was to prove that audio does work in IG.

    Also the reason I was thinking it was related to a window focus or RR was if a flip from IG to RR and back again (using the RR navigation) sometimes the audio will start working.

    Well, then as an error-checking step, why don't you try running just IG (no RR).

    Did you accidentally erase the voice prompts, or perhaps, had a problem during the instalation of the SW. Did you buy it from INAV?

    I tested it with just IG3 running (no RR) and it works fine, i hear voice prompts. I would assume there is something wrong with my config in RR. Any thoughts or better yet, can someone post there config screen shot?

    Yeah, it's likely that your keyboard is pressing the Mute hotkey, or something is incorrectly configured with the Mute button altogether.
    Look into that.
    BTW, this could be mute issue in either RR, iG, or Windows.

    Double check the skin you are using.
    In RR code, there is nothing that mute or change the way iG giving voice instruction. I wish I can alter that process.
    If you use latest version of RR (11/12) or any beta release during Oct (RR_Auto_IG....), double check your ExecTBL.ini for this command IGPAUSE if it associate with anything that alter the volume.
