Quick question for Garmin users

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Quick question for Garmin users

Took my first ride with my new Garmin 500, loved it, but have a question. I set a distance alert, just to see what it would do, how it would sound, etc. If I hadn't remembered the alert was coming at the 30 mile mark and looked down to watch it - - - I would have NEVER heard the 'beep'. I saw a message, and I THINK I heard a very low beep, but barely. I don't see anything in the manual about a volumn on these, anybody know of some way to make this louder? This particular alert I'm not so concerned about, but I'm trying to dial in some good cadence alerts and I'd like to be able to hear those. Thanks.

Hmm, I'll be setting mine up this afternoon for the first time and I'll see if I come across anything. I'd like to hear the beeps too.

I have never heard any beeps on any Garmin's I've had. But then I don't use my hearing aids when ridding as the wind noise sounds like cannon fodder.

My beep is super loud, but I ride at night in low traffic areas so it's dead quiet around me.
