I have just received my first satnav and have a newbie question.

My friend has an eTrex30 and when navigating using waypoints the satnav makes a noise when he nears the waypoint.

Is it possible to do this with my eTrex10, or is that option only available with the more expensive eTrex30?

If possible how do I do it?

Yours should do it too. See SetUp, Tones, Turn Warning

Thanks for the prompt reply.

When I select Setup there is no option for Tones or Turn Warning.

The options are System, Display, Map, Tracks, Reset, Page Sequence, Units, Time, Position Format, Heading, Geocaches, Routing, Profiles or About

Have you 'been into' any of them to look for the Tones?

Are you running the latest firmware?

If so maybe the 10 isn't able to do so. My Etrex20 provides tones.

Manual suggests it's only 20 and 30 that do tones

Thank you all for your replies.

It is a new satnav, so I assume that it has the latest "firmware".

I have sent an email to Garmin Support to ask for confirmation of whether the ring tone is available on eTrex10 or not.
