Am I right in thinking that Garmin is the only sat-nav that can handle audio files on POIs?

Are there any workarounds to get a TomTom/other satnavs to play audio?

Please help!

Cheers,

You are correct in your assumption.  Currently only Garmin allows an audio file to be directly associated with a POI.  However, you can also do this using GeoTours Mobile which runs on any windows-enabled smartphone with an integrated or attached GPS receiver.
 
We currently provide support for downloading the location names and lat/lon values to a TomTom, but there's no way to associate audio files with POIs.  Our site does allow you to download the audio files along with the TomTom POIs, but you must transfer them to your device and play them manually using the built-in MP3 player when you are at the location.
 
Thanks, Scott

No way, you can play mp3s with a TomTom? I've used one (currently a TomTom One) for years and I didn't know that! Is there any documentation on this anywhere about how you do it?

Thanks for  your help by the way Scott! You rule!
