    Voice routing directions

    Hi all

    Is it possible to modify the distance before which the first routing instruction is gien. It currently gives it at 500 metres which for me is a bit too soon and I would like to change it to about 200metres. Is there an ini file which I can set it.

    Also, when creating a route, and if I select POI, it limits to 80km. If I select Whole Map, you then have to exit from this screen but when I go back in to create the route and use POI, it is still set to 80km so it is not saving the change. Is there an ini file which I can set it to whole map

    Thanks
    Cormac

    you need to press enter (either on keyboard or OSK) after changing the POI options for it to take effect, simply closing the window will ignore it.

    As for the first distance - I think the best you can do is just disable the 500m voice by opening up C:\destinatorApps\Destinator\Common\Interface\Voic e\<Voice Skin>\DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf

    Comment out (prefix with //) or delete any lines that reference "SECOND_DISTANCE". I've not tested this so it might not work

    If you open the MM Config and go to advanced GPS you'll find what you want to change abot 3/4 of the way down the page: 1st warning, 2nd warning.

    Hit OK and it will save those settings and open up the main program. Done.

    Hi all,

    I modified the skin DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf and it worked a treat.

    Can anyone think of a way of resetting the default POI range from 80km to whole map?
