Hi Rodger, Hi Alan
Don’t mute the SmartASS3. There is another way.
I have a SmartASS3 fitted in my Europa Mono. Wonderful piece of kit. If you configure the device target speed and select option “6” then in normal conditions you will only occasionally hear the voice. For me it becomes a welcome cockpit companion, not an irritant. I would hear a warning voice if my gear was not down and locked. I do hear a comforting voice when I come over the hedge saying “Slow” and sometimes, very acceptably a “Too slow” just before I flare.
I don’t like the other extra speed announcements for I feel that I would subconsciously tend to ignore them. For my purposes I consciously selected the configurable option of switching off the continuous voice speed read out. For me, I only hear a voice when the speed is below my preset desired target speed. It is possible to suppress all of the speaking that you hear in airspeed and speed director modes except for when the speed is slow or very slow. To toggle the only speak when slow mode, press and hold the push switch until you have heard the sixth beep. It will say “6 enabled” then only speak when slow mode is enabled or “6 disabled” when the only speak when slow mode is disabled. In my opinion the inclusive undercarriage warning is essential for the Europa Monowheel. My proximity switch tells when the gear is a safely locked position, aided by an AUVRAY spring.
I also have an electronic stall warning fitted.
Trust that helps.
