Optima ii Can't Post

I'm trying to get used to the canopy descent sounds - i get the 1st warning a single beep. and the second (a single beep), but the 3rd is a multi-tone beep.

Why the difference in the last one vs a single beep again? Is it simple to keep re-confirming that you definitely need to be turning to final??

I'm not and never will be doing a high performance landing. And I'm currently landing on visual (not relying on the beeps and never will) but trying to get a much better accurate view on exactly what altitude I'm at in my pattern.

It's called a "guiding tone". Disable it and you will end up with single 3rd beep as well.

I was just 'RTFM' actually Smile.

When it say's it guides you between the second and third descent altitudes are those beeps all the way through from second warning altitude to third? That would explain a lot........

Yes, correct.
The intervals becomes shorter and shorter to give you an idea of how fast you are descending towards your 3rd beep-altitude. I love that function and it has made my setup much better since the first jump with the OptimaII.
