Hi,

When you upload a tour to a sat-nav is there anyway of having the poi not function as a tour with directions, etc but still get the audio to play at certain points along a given route?

Let me give you an example - say you wanted to use your sat-nav to get you from A to Z so you ask it to give you those directions.

However, it might be that you wanted to say several things along that point about B, C, D, E, etc. but not have that distract the sat-nav from giving someone the directions from A to Z.

How could you do that?

Cheers,

Dr_Whom

What you describe is nearly exactly what the Garmin TourGuide format offers.  When you download a tour, the locations show up in a list on your device.  You can choose to be routed to any one of the locations.  Furthermore, if you set the TourGuide settings to 'AutoPlay', all locations will play automatically when you pass them.  Thus, in your example, you choose to be routed to location Z and all intermediate locations will play automatically when you pass them along the way.

The TourGuide format is compatible with most Garmin units.  More information about the Garmin TourGuide format here.
 
Hope that helps.
 
Thanks, Scott
