Question about Garmin GPSMAP 3210 GPS Receiver
I've tried to set 0,001 miles arrival alarm and the 15 seconds arrival alarm. Then I navigated to a specific poin but upon arrival there was not a sign or a sound indicating the arrival.
Am I doing something wrong??
If you set your arrival alarm to .001 you are trying to hit a very small circle, only 6' in diameter and the odds of actually reaching that point are incredibly low so it's not likely the alarm will go off. Try setting your arrival alarm to .100 just to see if the arrival alarm works better.
When you set alarm to 15 second arrival you should see and hear an alarm, however, the slower you are going, the smaller the arrival circle gets, which means its gets harder to hit the area that triggers the alarm. 15 seconds is the default setting and I have found that it works fine at normal cruising speeds. If you are traveling very slowly, try bumping the arrival time up in 30 second increments to see if you can get an alarm.
When the alarm does go off, it is a very faint double beep which is hard to hear over the sound of wind and engines. I don't remember exactly how the visual arrival message appears but it is also very subtle. It appears either as a change to the menu bar at the bottom of the screen, or as a message box on the screen that dissappears very quickly. When I use that model I frequently miss the arrival alerts.
