Hi Rox, Dan and Larry and other with with might have hearing loss,
I am also hearing impaired and rely on Destiny to identify traffic. Even 
with my hearing aids, it is difficult for me to hear traffic much less 
to locate where it is coming from. I also struggle with balance issues 
and have had many falls, such that I have had physical therapy to 
improve my balance. I am glad to learn about other NAGDU member with 
hearing loss
I am secretary of the deaf-blind division of the NFB so if you have any 
concerns or are interested in joining the division let me know.
