V9. No more call out of alt during landing

Postby n468ac » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:25 pm

I upgraded to v9. I no longer have the alt call out during landing. I've checked the settings and I'm getting all the other voice alerts. Made two sap approaches yesterday and not a peep. Anything changed ? Or new setting needed to get the 500, 300, 200, 100 count down??

I can't think of anything that's changed. I just tested it and it worked. There is a setting for altitude alerts but it is not new and the default is on.

I loaded V9 to our HXs in our RV7a and made a SAP approach to landing and got a 500 foot call out on landing yesterday. Womens voice.

I flew several approaches ... you must capture the approach to get the 500 300 200 100 countdown. But after flying several, it doesn't alway speak all of the heights, it seems very random. I get 500 200 ... next approach I got 300 200 100 ... next approach I got 500 and nothing else. Maybe a bug?

You should hear callouts at 500, 200, and 100.

I see the callouts are disabled if you have another approach mode active, like ILS or GPSV, so that could be another reason.

AWWWWWW ... I bet that's my issue. Is that going to change in the next release? I really would like the call outs whenever a runway is selected. I find them useful in all landings.
