   The original question was how to get alerted when arriving, approaching, 
coming  close, landing or getting near a specified location with a vehicle 
with possibly high speed.

  Arrival radius is not suitable tool for this type of alert. If one wants 
to hear also the comment attached to the checkpoint there is the separate 
setting to enable comments when approaching too.

  According the documentation arrival will trigger only  announcement of 
comment and thus will be silent if there is no comment defined for given
