Hey A32X!I concur! It is very annoying. I did read in the readme file that you can de-activate these warning sounds by adding three zeroes in front of the sound file names if it becomes too annoying. I think the developers already ran into this issue. The problem is that if you want to fly this bird in mountanous territory, you may need that function.Sincerely,Dennis D. Mullert

It is unfortunate that there are so few available GPWS gauges especially for this kind and vintage of aircraft.This one seems to work pretty well in flat terrain but is not useful (unfortunately) when you really need it in mountainous terrain.The sounds are annoying to me as well so I disabled them as has most of the team. Scott has worked with the original author to provide different programming and you may see that in the next release.The sounds were distributed renamed with 3 leading zeroes. Did you enable them? ... or did you have them before the download? If so, follow these instructions from the FAQ's page and in your Documentation Folder of the Dash 7.1. GPWS: The sounds on the GPWS can get annoying. If you would like them turned off, do the following. In your FS2002 Sounds folder, find and rename the following files that quiet down that GPWS:toolowflapstolowgearwhoopterrain1terrain2dontsinkglideslopepullupI just added a "0" to the front of mine (eg 0terrain1). That puts them at thetop of the sound list! Easy to find later!The gauge does have a warning light but no reset, an issue we would like corrected in a revamped gauge.Kind RegardsMilton Shupe

Heya Milton. I am enjoying your Dash 7 a great deal and had my first PBI-PID flight last night. However, I tried that solution in your word document concerning the names of the sound files for the "glide slope" and "pull up" sounds, but they are already "zero"d. lol However, the sounds still occur. I'm not sure what I should do..should I remove the zeros? Or would that keep it activated? George

George, :-)My guess is you already had those sounds installed... so now you have two sets; one I distributed, but renamed to de-activate them, and ones you already had. Find those sounds and rename or delete them and you will be whoop-whoop free. :-)Milton

Make sure all the sound files mentioned in the Ddocument are "zero'd" There are actually a couple that will give different variations of that warning!BTW...looking as we speak for a fix that will deactivate the GPWS once gear is down. Yes...this is a great mountain flyer...yes we need a GPWS for that...Yes...this one will not allow the kind of approaches the Dash 7 is "used" to!Scott
