    TomTom Mobile Voice format

    Hi,

    I just downloaded some more voices from the tomtom website for my TTM, normally you can use the files from TomTom GO but I read somewhere that Series60 don't support 22KHZ files and TT GO does.
    Series60 only support 16KHZ.
    Now, I was thinking of converting them but the voicefile is a .chk and I wasn't able to find any prog capable of opening it..

    is there anyone that knows a bit more about this fileformat tomtom uses and how to convert it to 16KHZ (if possible...)

    thanks in advance

    while cruising the web I discovered that the file is an .ogg file
    I tried to decode it to wav (successfull) then I tried to encode it to ogg with downsampling it from 22khz to 16khz (successfull)
    When I put the file in my TomTom map, TT sees it but when I go in languages and click on test with the newly added language I hear nothing and the app hangs
    I also get the nice message that it is out of memory (btw I have a 7610)
    hmmm, did something wrong with the encoding I guess
    the cool thing is that you can listen to all the commands with winamp

    will try some more
    all info is welcome

    well, I don't think it will resolve the 'lag' as it is the same sort of file
    as you listen to the file, you hear every instruction spoken after the other
    so tt knows where to find the specific instruction in 1 file
    my guess is that that big amount of poi's cause the tt main app to lose it and so causing the voice to stutter as instructions from the main app, while locating the instructions, go wild

    pffff, re-reading this makes me freak-out a bit (what a sentence)

    I'm having problems too! (see my thread). I can't get my voices to work and Tim or Jane stutters, so I've wiped the whole lot and just left Tim & Jane on there own. {:@<
