And, some more time with its TomTom-based SatNav system.
Turns out I was misinformed. The voice I was told was 'Ben' from New Zealand, whose advice upon reaching your destination was, "Windows up, grab those sunnies and don't let the seagulls steal your chips!" was actually 'James' from Australia.
You can listen to it again here:
(My apologies if this link takes you away from the main page of this blog and forces you to go back one page to return. Seems to be how this blogging software works with audio clips.)
Now, there are two places in the Mazda6 SatNav system where you can select the voice you want to give you directions.
Why there are two perhaps only Mazda and TomTom know. Wasted about half an hour figuring that out...
In one place you can't get either Ben or James, but if you go to 'Settings' on the main SatNav menu they are both available.
To hear how Ben tells you you have arrived, click here;
So my ear has never really become attuned to the Kiwi accent.
Hence, I can barely make out a syllable of what 'Ben' is saying here.
OK, I get the '300 yards', 'you have reached your destination', and 'Cheers for the ride, mate!'
But what is he asking us to grab?
Sounds like 'jandals, togs and chil-e-van.'
Anybody got a clue?
Please let me know...
