What do the sounds mean?

Postby bulpup » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:00 pm

Is there a listing of sounds and what they mean somewhere? I use Waze on my motorcycle and can't see what the screen says but I hear all kinds of noises through the headset.

Don't blame you at all for not spotting that one.

*facepalm*

It is indeed a different bonus sound with the UK voice data. I switched back to US, and the loud ding came back. I'm going to do some copy & pasting and see if I can get the ding with the pleasant UK voices. :geek:

Nope, we're both using the Play store release.

I feel like a silly goose now even bringing this up, but I think I figured out the difference. I downloaded the UK voice prompts, he has the stock United States voices. I'm going to change back to US prompts today and see if it changes the candy sound.

This came up when I was snooping in the sounds directory on my phone and noticed the bonus.bin file was a different size on the UK and Hebrew directories versus the one in the US directory.

Could that be you upgraded from a beta and the friend did a fresh install?

It's bugging me now.

My friend and I have the same software version (and same handset model/Android version) but still have different tones. So weird!

It is at the end of my radio interview from 2 years ago.
