    I am trying to load google play with an .apk file on my Garmin Dezl otr 1000. I have had no luck. Anyone have any ideas on how to do this.?
    Also the alerts only sound a short DING no voice notification. Any ideas as to where I might find the DING sound file and replace it with something more annoying so I can be properly alerted to up coming curves, weigh stations, etc.

    Garmin has some info. on 'Sideloading' Android apps. here: -
    https://support.garmin.com/en-US/?faq=Uq5I6GKFO639rZTkzdqQs8

    This goes some way to say it is OK to do this but doesn't tell you how

    Please note, I have not tried this myself and anyone who uses these note does so at their own risk, I will not be responsible for anything going wrong, the Play Store app. can be downloaded from here :-

    https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-store/

    I found on the net that the downloaded app. is placed on a microSD card, placed in the dezl and installed from there (I am not sure if this app. will be automatically installed on power up), when installed the new app. can be found under apps. >> Productivity

    There is also reference to Factory mode >> "Install from SD card" mentioned but with no further details
