    I have turned 0ff all notifications (except voice when navigating) but every few miles the 55 double-dings. There is no banner explaining the reason for the sound, and it is soooooo annoying. It is never in the same location twice. It has become a safety distraction, and I am about ready to trash the thing. Any ideas?

    Hard reset seems to have terminated the random double-ding problem.

    I did need to go into the settings afterwards and reset all preferences, including unchecking the routine notifications (crosswalks, railroad crossings, etc).
