    Spoken street names?

    This is something I miss from the days of using Mappoint with AGPS, it would say the street name I'm supposed to turn on. Ever since I made the move to Routis and Destinator, I have had to look at the screen to know what street to turn onto. I'm using the AT&T Natural Voices speech engine so it doesn't sound so robotic.

    Use the SAPI plugin, you can configure it to do exactly that

    is there a way to figure out how to pause the music long enough until the thing stops talking automatically? say if it starts saying a really long name...

    Change this line in settings.ini to the number of seconds you want it to mute :

    MuteTime=3

    Or if you use frodoplayer:

    FrodoPauseTime=3

    Or you can change it from the setup --> audio mute tab

    yes, however, say you have something that goes turn right onto alksjdfoiawjerojialk;jsfdljlsakjasdf rd... even with the longer delay... it may still overlap the music... OR.. if you have something that says turn right on park street. you will be sitting there waiting for music..

    The SDK only lets you know when a message is about to start, not how long it is or when it's ended....so the answer is no.

    Doesn't work with routis or Iguidance though. Only for destinator. Right? Unless I missed something.

    I know but I meant that mapmonkey only works on destinator and not on routis. I'm not familiar with mapmonkey. I searched but couldnt find a brief explanation of what it is. There should be a sticky explaining what it does. That goes for all software I believe. A brief expalanation followed by a list of features would be nice.
