    Maybe have an option on the software app to activate / de-activate the frequency announcements altogether. Or choose to rather have the RDS (Station name) read if available.

    I would rather turn the frequency announcement off altogether. When I'm flipping thru stations, I really don't care what the frequency is, and that voice takes soooo long to spit it out. 

    Also worth noting that other models are also asking for the ability to turn this off. If I'm using a 2-way radio, it really does make the FM radio terribly frustrating to use.

    Or Maybe an option to simple announce once per start up. So when you power the 20S it will only announce it once and every time after that its silent. so maybe Enable/Disable/One-Time-Only, maybe have your cake and eat a few slices.

    Yes, truly, this irritating on my 20s. I hope there would be a fix SOON.

    I agree. Very annoying on the 20s and really unnecessary to keep repeating the frequency all the time. First time it's tuned would be good but after that no more.

    Simple. The frequency announcement and preset number only needs to be heard when the preset / station is changed. Hearing this or nothing at all can be an option in the app.

    i vote for this option "The frequency announcement and preset number only needs to be heard when the preset / station is changed. Hearing this or nothing at all can be an option in the app."

    I agree. It needs a setting to disable this.

    It delays the time before we can actually listen to the radio.

    Sometimes it is useless.

    OK we know you have a text-2-speech engine, but don't overdo it.

    I even turned off "Voice Prompts" -- which basically made my 20S say virtually nothing EXCEPT for the FM Radio Frequencies. So frustrating!

    Please, add option to disable this frequency announcement, this is useless. Announcement of the number of station is ok, but frequency is terrible useless and, because  this announcement is  very louder then a radio voice , destroy my ears.

    FYI, this toggle is not in Device Manager, but is in the Sena app and voice menu. There is no explanation in the FM Radio section (page 26) but there is on Pg48...

     

    When FM Station Guide is enabled, FM station frequencies are given by voice prompts as you select preset stations. When FM Station Guide is disabled, the voice prompts on FM station frequencies will not be given as you select preset stations. 

     

    I am yet to play with this a bit more. ..

    First of all let's hope the spam above get deleted soon.

     

    Now, I haven't tested the new feature yet (since it is NOT in device manager (why?), but I think it need to be further improved.

    You see it is good to disable the prompt when there is an interruption (a beep from the phone maybe), but maybe someone wants to keep it when you change preset stations.

    Maybe make it "off / limited / on"?

    I agree with Nick Sardelianos, that's what all of us are asking for.

    Maybe this was the fastest software modification in order to make the radio usable with a gps. Then Sena will do a more sophisticated update (I hope).

    With the v1.5 firmware for the 20S you can now choose to disable or enable the announcement of the FM station guide. In addition, we will look into the possibility of including additional options in the future.

    This is just a quick fix. Too hurried fix to a public clamor. What is needed is a BETTER fix down the road like when you first change stations, it announces the station BUT when you just come from a multi-task (ex. phone call) the announcement WILL BE muted. Just a firmware algorithm fix that is not too hard to code, considering how big a company SENA  is. Cheers!

    DjPaul, you should NOT spam threads with your advertisements for another thread/issue that has nothing to do with the one in which you are posting.
