Subject: Re: Variable speed on the Iriver?

Re: Variable speed on the Iriver?

Hi

Thanks for the info about the speed info not being stored in the cfg file,
that is a shame. I also agree that some sort of reset to normal capability
would be useful as would adding the info to the cfg file if this were
possible.

I have been using this function on my H340 and am really enjoying being
able to crank up my speed a bit but was wondering if there is any
possibility that might allow for the maximum speed to be increased because
although I am enjoying what there is now I could still quite happily go
faster than the maximum increase allowed. Many blind people are used to
listening to our screen readers at 100 miles per hour and I would love to be
able to go faster than is now allowed.

Cheers and keep up the good work.
