I think it would be nice in a future update to have the timer talk to you if you turn on that feature. The Telemetry can talk but the timer won't as far as I know. The screen is hard to see in the sun and when you look down at the timer you can't see it.

If it's like the 14SGH it will announce through the headphone jack when you turn the sound on. I agree that it should route through the internal speaker and not just say 20 seconds and then count down from 10.

No. It will announce 20 seconds left and then start the final countdown announcement from 10 seconds to 0. It will not play through the internal speaker; only through headphones which I find dangerous since you'd like to hear your motor and be aware of what's going on around you. Some have rigged up small powered speakers with the 3.5mm stereo jack to hear it clearly. I'm unaware if normal telemetry functions will announce through the radios internal speaker.
