Is there any way I can silence the commentary on my Streetpilot i3 but KEEP the camera warning bongs?

just thought. the voice only during navigation. Why would you want to silence the Voice?

as beerbelly says you only get a voice when you are navigating to a location...when in 'map' mode you only get the bongs.........

I would like to lose the voice for the benefit of passengers. Also, I find the screen display really easy to follow while the warnings when there are lots of turnings close to each other can lead me astray . . .

Well you could use Ash10's voice utilities to butcher the voice files so that you got what you wanted.

Wouldn't really be any easy configurable option, though - you wouldn't be able to switch it off or on, easily.

And you'd need to ensure you had a good backup of the voice data first.

What about recording a new mute voice for each instruction? Easy for a beginner or not worth the candle?

If you rely so heavily on the screen display and not the voice prompts, why not just turn the volume down to its minimum !!

Sanaar: Turning down the volume means no camera warnings.
I'm really after a solution, if there is one.

I guess this probably isn't going to help but there is a 'Silent Voice' available for Tom Tom units which does exactly what you're asking for ie. mutes voice guidance but retains audible Speed Camera and POI warnings.
The fact that one has been produced at all means that what you're looking for isn't as surprising or odd as some may believe.
I can certainly see the merits in a 'Silent Voice' as on occasions the voice guidance can become a distraction, especially when travelling with passengers.

As far as I'm aware there doesn't appear to be something similar for Garmin GPS.....yet.
