    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I would assume it was to alert you to POI, Dangerous Crossing, etc. when used with GPS. But I don't have one. I am almost certain it says this in that part of the manual?

EDIT: Starting on page 121 of your manual it talks about the alert beep and volume. I assume the alert light will flash when one these are triggered.

alert light

If i had to guess i'd say it blinks when there is a fire tone out...thats how my pager works...a little red LED blinks when it gets tripped. (alert) I could be wrong though, i don't own one.

It must be for the tone out. I set a POI in the gps settings and the light doesn't go off when the radio alerts me.

Hello,

The ALERT LED will illuminate after a WX Alert, or Dangerous XING or Road, if you exceed speed limit setting for Dangerous XING or Road as you approach within 1/2 mile of GPS coordinates.
