    Pretty sure you can just rename your 500.wav and it'll ignore it (The audio at least, you'll most likely still get visual notification)

    or if that doesn't work, open your DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf inside the voice folder and comment out (//) any lines that mention the "SECOND_DISTANCE" command

    Thanks for that. Commenting Out works a treat. There is still a visual alert on my setup at 500yds but no voice until 200yds which is absolutely ideal for me.
    Thanks again,

    You can also edit "DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf" (in the voice you choose to use)

    You can modify all distances and messages.

    Be careful, make a backup !

    Angry

    can all refrences to 500yards be removed from DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf?

    I want to get rid of both the message and the display.

    or even better, would it be possible to change the warning for 500 yards to 300, and 200 yards to 150yards?
    I want to have ago at editing the file but i dont want to mess things up

    Code:
    ::MC,KEEP_LEFT*SECOND_DISTANCE,0,0,k_l;500;UNITS,"Keep left five hundred yards/meters"
    does the "500;UNITS" define when the call the file up?

    No, that defines the name of the WAV file to play (500.wav)

    the "SECOND_DISTANCE" variable will be defined as 500 somewhere else

    Edit: And from the looks of it, not in that file

    Another way, try to sneak up on the turns. If you come towards the intersection, then, about 600 yards away, make a 45 degree turn and start crabbing across the street, the computer might think you're going somewhere else and start recalculating the route. Then, the moment it isn't looking, you wrench the steering wheel back and hit the throttle.

    As you bounce over the sidewalks and dodge oncoming traffic, your computer will realize its mistake and try to tell you that your turn is 500 yards ahead, but by this time you'll be close enough to the turn that it'll give you the closer warning.

    One problem with this method, there seems to be an odd statistical correlation between traffic collisions and doing this. I think that's probably a fluke, but that and severe undercarriage damage seem to show up a lot, so, your mileage may vary.

    Good luck!
