I'll have to admit I've never bothered with voice alert.

Mine is consistent: it never does.

I put together a little microcontroller circuit that sends the magic  
string for powering on to the D700 serial port.  I also use the APO2  
to manage power to the D700 and GPS.

My list of things to do includes building a new circuit that watches  
vehicle power and turns the D700 off and on as appropriate.  I may  
not get to that one for a while, since what I have now works. (:
