Bongs and bings — 6 Comments

  1. My SatNav scared the living daylights out of me the first time I used it and reached 74 on the motorway. The sound was so loud and intimidating I thought itwas the cops behind me!. I switched the speed warning sound off for a while after that, and still do if I’m on a motorway, but now have a quieter and less objectionable “ting” sound driving on restricted roads to avoid points on me license.

  2. Cat – The problem then is that you have no one to blame when you get lost.

    Sean – I have to investigate yet what parts I can tweak.  I’m never too happy messing around in other people’s insides..

  3. Wow, that blows me away GD. Talk about Big Brother watching you! I have a new SatNav. It hasn’t binged at me yet, maybe they don’t over here. I sure hope not. I do think that’s taking their “job description” to a whole new level.

  4. Denise – Soon enough the damn things will have made drivers redundant.  It knows a little too much for my comfort!
