I don't know how easy it would be to program but I think it would be a great idea if the user could select the distance for which they get the heartbeat, or if it could be different for each tier maybe? 10 feet when you first start out and then dial it back in as you progress through the tiers so it is a couple of feet by the time you get to Champ or TC?
Or, better yet, give us the ability to turn the heartbeat OFF in Settings. Many of us find the heartbeat to be extremely annoying.
Having said that, WGT has stated that they do not want to give us more Settings, because many of us do not use many of the Settings they have already given us. I find that to be one of the most moronic statements I've ever heard from them.
