2013 Subaru BRZ: Hunt for Red October (with Video)
September 19, 2012
My spouse swears the navigation system prompts in our long-term 2013 Subaru BRZ sound like submarine sonar. So he shot a quick video while we were out on an errand this morning and being guided by the BRZ's navigation lady. That video is after the jump, followed by a clip of sonar in a real sub. Similar, aren't they?
You'll also notice just how robotic the voice navigation is in the Subaru -- and if you listen carefully, how the nav lady misidentifies "State Route 91" as "Stage Route 91." It's not an isolated occurrence. Every single California state highway (and we have many of them here in Southern California) is a stage route in her world. Is it a simple mispronunciation or is there a software engineer out there who imagines we still travel by stagecoach out here?
