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. (:
