  I would vote for toggle  for arrival/approach and also for possibility to 
set both radius settings to zero to disab le either of those. Both 
announcemens become very announing when standing near checked points and 
LS is repeating continously the point.

  One feature wish for auto-announce too:  points could be announced only 
if current speed is above certain level. This speed thershodl could be 
something like 'minimum walking speed' and could affect other functions
