Voice Prompts

NJ Bob, what kind of set-up do you have for voice prompts?

My .02 worth. I've got the 276C and when I bought it I thought the voice prompt was just going to be a novelty. Now I would not think of having a GPS on my bike without voice prompt. I actually rely on it more than the screen.

I had the same feeling, but was quickly converted.

I also have an XM radio and a Radar detector. I use one of these:



from Tesseract to tie them all together. It is a high quality audio amplifier and sounds great. It drives either a pair of Shure E2C earphones or some custom molded (by Marilyn Navia) earphones with Sony drivers.

The XMA3 "auto-muting mono input" is perfect for use with the GPS as it reduces the level of the XM radio only when the GPS "talks". The radar detector output blends in with the XM radio.

Audio Set Up

NJ Bob, wow - that certainly exceeds my technical competence, but then again that's not hard as anything beyond an oil & filter change is beyond my skill level. I had to have my BMW tech hard-wire the GPS when I got it. Maybe that's why I'm not considering voice prompts. I wouldn't know where to start.
