Looked at it through the window - big blobs of rain pooling on the roof thanks to the C2V3. Can't really go anywhere today as the Great North Run has crippled the local roads. Now tagging my MP3s for the new SD card and using an easier way than the recently published guide - finds all the artwork for you in Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk. Only sticking point is sometimes not having the choice of an artwork less than 400 x 400 resolution (get the smallest you have a choice of and then you can resize as per already published guide. Need to get "MP3tag" software (go to afterdawn.com - http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/get_mp3_album_info_from_amazon.cfm).

MH you don't need to convert to mp3; m4a works fine, so just the artwork is needed!

Went to load my personal POI's on to the Pro Nav (speed cameras etc), only to discover that a text file (which has to be in route directory of the SD), I forgot to copy across to the card when creating the package in VW Germany's Nav companion app, and typically the missing file resides on my PC at work  :embarrassed:

Typical, ill have to do it all again today as I'm off now until Wednesday and can't wait that long  :laugh:

It leaves m4a files as they are, this has a convenient embedding feature which includes grabbing a suitable artwork design from amazon.com and amazon.de then embedding it in a couple of steps. It embeds to a lot more than mp3.

Massively easier. You select the folder with the album tracks, then ask it to look on Amazon.de or Amazon.com, it'll give you all the options (sometimes there's 8 or 10 artwork options with varying sizes) and tell it to embed the one you pick. Very quick and easy.
