SYNC versus Wife

The SYNC system in my vehicle provides clear, polite and efficient communication feedback.

My interaction w/ the SYNC woman continues to become more effective w/ each passing mile.

Recently I took the leap and informed the wife that she should strive to be more like the SYNC woman.

She now thinks I should marry my car.


FWIW, my fall-back career is couples counseling.

They Sync lady is an absolute nag when giving driving directions. Every 5 seconds she's telling me to continue straight on the freeway. I've yelled at her a few times to stfu. I use my phone's navigation now. It's less naggy.

Haha. My wife and I like to poke fun at her, especially when she gets confused or seems to be sending us a strange route.

I gotta say though, when I got the 50 miles to E low fuel message a couple of days ago, I thought it was pretty nifty that she automatically displayed the location of all the gas stations in the area.

I told my wife the directions needed to come from the passenger side, then I could pretend she is in the car with me. "Pull over and ask someone!" She didn't laugh too hard...

You have to admit though that despite some of her idiosyncrasies the sync lady always tries to please you. Now if only Ford had some additional attachments I would never to leave the car.

Now that mimics a flesh-and-blood woman so closely that it is creepy.

Let's have a vote, how many guys prefer their girlfriends/wives over the Sync lady?

Funny stuff.

Its just a matter of time before there is an 'app' or computer hack that will let us tailor the voice and accents of the sync lady... be funny if she could be "auto-tuned" . Might have to record her and give that a try just for laughs.

I wonder what she'd look like if she was real?

LOL... reading this thread makes me laugh.
I usually have an issue with the Sync-Lady also... we call her Samantha because she sounds just like the one in Husbands' old F150 Nav system. I also hope that someday you can change the voice... sorry but I would prefer something like Worf from Star Trek or an English accent, but then I would get lost on purpose. I use my Nav system on my droid since I needed the shaker 1000 in the car.
Thanks for the laugh guys
