Question about GPS
It is possible to turn up the voice level...but you have to be willing to hack the voice file a wee bit with a hex editor.
Just Open the .vpm file you want to modify in the hex editor, and search for "<voice_volume>96</voice_volume>" without the quotation marks...and change the numerical value - I have Australian Karen cranked up to 96. This makes the sound level of the voice prompts comparable to the MP3 level when I hook my Nuvi350 into my vehicle's sound system via the added line input that takes the place of the non-existent CD changer. Before I did this, when I played MP3s at a comfotable listening level, the voice prompts were too quiet. Now, they're comparable.

If you want to hack the volume on most gps units and also change the voice prompts, for ex. my 885t always says "recalculating", i changed it to " you missed, recalculating, you dummy", my friends get a kick out of it. i tried to do the approach listed above, but, with my unit, the voices would not be on the garmin unit anymore and i would have to reload them. so i found this really slicker than snail snot, website by "turboccc" it is: http://turboccc.wikispaces.com
this site is a lifesafer for most who use gps units, and he even responds to questions. so if u like what he offers please contribute something to him through paypal. i am not his friend just really glad i found his site, it is the best around - Guaranteed and there are other great apps there also- including the best working editor for gps i have come across - with instructions etc
