Having just installed the new map update I no longer have liz Whittakers voice for the camera warnings ( tomtom would not boot with previous Data.chk file).
Is there is no updated data.chk file I will make my own .ogg files for the cameras using liz's existing warnings, but which file are they in?

Confused.... 8O

That's what I thought: When I load that data.chk file into my sound editor it shows only the direction instructions - no camera warnings, they SHOULD be in there???

If you add the .ogg files (suitably renamed) that are right at the bottom of that page, to the map folder, you won't need to worry about the data.chk file again!

Map folder speed cam files should have three identical files if you do it this way. For example:

gatso_60.ov2
gatso_60.bmp
gatso_60.ogg

Reset the "Warn when near" distances (you won't be asked to select the sound, because it's now linked) and away you go!

If you are replacing the data.chk file, you have the warning voices installed there. You don't use the Voices folder for the warning sounds. Voices folder is for the instruction voices - the numbered data**.chk files and matching .vif files.

The .bmp file should go in the map folder along with the .ov2 file of exactly the same name.

Couple of thoughts:
Are the names of the ogg files identical to those of the speed camera ov2 files?
Have you reinstated the 'vanilla' data.chk file that is installed by TT6.52?

henryg,
Your a star.
Just renamed the OGG file to pocketgps_uk_gatso_30.ogg & it works.
Nowhere I have read that you need to rename files

On a sort of connected topic, does anyone have the Liz or Vicki voices named for the speed cameras but without the siren that has been added at the beginning. OR the ones as above, but with oggs for 20mph cameras?
