Joking aside - does it just call out specific traffic, or will it generate the 'multiple contacts in the xxxx area, possible gliders' that a LARS service would provide?
A lot of time with a real LARS service it's about avoiding an area of likely conflict before coming into a specific conflict that's important.
Rather hope it does not, that would probably be annoying. A verbal warning to bring attention to a specific close proximity/collision risk, as per Flarm going red (and when closer, flashing & alarming) would be ideal; verbally advising on all traffic would lead to Oscar Fox Fox mode being selected on the audio! Gaggles etc can be seen on screen anyway from the Flarm return. The 'talking lady' in the MGL EFIS box now has a 'mute' button in the panel, to silence her for a while, to stop her from over-speaking ATC etc when issuing audible warnings on traffic proximity (usually not in conflict).
