Comment: My GPS

Yea, I'd listen to that.

OK, that's just weird, because the British English on MY GPS sounds kinda like Sean Connery, only less Scottish. I guess they decided they needed to UPDATE and IMPROVE on the newer models.

I picked British Daniel. I have no idea who his voice is.

Once, however, it fell onto the side floorboard of my car, during a long trip alone. I forgot it was there... and it came time for a turn and British Daniel spoke and I about came out of my skin.

I wish he detected cops. I got a ticket that trip. Most totally sucked...

That reminded me of my Xmas gift I got for the house, phones. I set them up in Spanish and told the story that I had got one heck of a deal Xmas eve from some guy outside a strip club. I was having a good time with it until the Post called with a freelance assignment & left it in Spanish. Now my wife is wearing me out.

I think we have a plain old American lady on our GPS. Maybe if I switched to Lizzy I'd yell at her less.

TGOO GPS is named Jill. She tries giving him directions. He tends not to listen and her voice sounds frustrated as she says, "RE-cal-cu-lating!".

I want an old irish woman to give me directions.

Mine doesn't say anything because I didn't get one from MOM. What gives?

I don't have one either.....

But I do have maps, and they don't shout at me if I make a wrong turn..........
