Hi Aedan,

Points taken.  What you indicate definitely makes sense and I completely 
understand  the discreteness  factor.

Like you, I too use Loadstone on many bus routes and usually have my 
mobile in my shirt, trousers/jeans or a jacket.  My Talks volume is 
usually set to level 1 (I put it to my ear if I need to listen) and I 
normally turn LS sound off and exclusively rely on the various patterns of 
vibrations to indicate checkpoints/arrivals etc.  My way of using LS/Talks 
isn't better or worse than yours or anyone elses I'm just explaining why I 
personally  haven't noticed!

We're always looking at ways to make things more configurable and friendly 
so your suggestions are very valid and we'll work on it.

Thanks for your feedback and we'll get there eventually!!!

Best regards,
