    Release: Navigon Voice Guidance Attenuation

    Hi all,

    I have written a small application to lower the volume of winamp when Navigon NCK 5 (and possibly other GPS software?!) speaks its guidance instructions.

    You will need to have .net framework installed and place the executable into the your roadrunner folder (Guino's exec.exe must also be present as this is used to tell winamp to lower its volume)

    I hope this is of use to some of you, and thank you to Mauri for testing!

    *** Latest version is here: Release: Navigon Voice Guidance Attenuation (Updated 24/01/07)

    This sounds cool, how does it work ? does it monitor the wave output line or something ? just curious.

    Mute the WAVE line,when NCK5 " speaks",to x percentage settable with sw.

    Work well with NCK5.

    EDIT:the navigation sw it owes to have implemented the possibility of setting the volume of the vocal audio message.

    Bye Neil!

    Yes it does exactly that, I noticed when Navigon speaks it lowers the wave line to whatever the percentage is set at in its settings.
    I monitor for this and then perform a command to lower winamp until it restores the volume..
    This may work with several other GPS apps too... I haven't tested any yet though

    Thanks,

    but I can't find Navigon anywhere on the internet for PC, only pocketpc?
    (I'm looking for a good navigation solution on PC)

    Hi,
    it would be great if rr would change to navigon automatically (for xx seconds) by saying directions.

    Yes I was thinking of implementing this feature, I just need to work out the skin commands...
    Does anyone know if its possible to overlay skins ? Ie. if I was at the home screen I was thinking it would be nice to have a section that pops out from the top of the screen to show the navigation...

    Hi,
    I will try and look at this today - the code to add it should be very easy.
    But the problem is finding out what screen RR is on.. i need to find out what happens if RR is already on the guidance screen and the sw tells it to go there again, I don't think there is any way of finding what screen RR is currently on..
    Also I would need that info because you wouldn't want it to keep switching to GPS while a video was playing..
