Today for the first time, my 501 is putting a whistling sound through the speakers when testing the signal strength. This sound changes pitch as the signal changes strength. What is this sound for? FWIW, my software version (1.54) has not changed.

TIA, Bill

Later: I found out that this was a bug in my V1.54 software. The whistling is normal, and although there's nothing about it in the 501 manual, my new 721's manual describes it fully.

So . . . never mind! :rolleyes:

I ran the 38-point check on both 110 and 119 (the only satellites I need to receive, now the whistling sound is gone! This is weird - does anyone have a clue what's going on? :confused:
