Sat Nav – The Remix


I feel like I haven’t been on here for ages. I miss my blog on the weekend. It’s not like I can’t do it. It’s just that I like to make the most of my weekend and that has my trying to peel myself away from the internet as much as I can. As hard as that may be.

This weekend I found myself making a nice little journey out of Oxford. It involved me using the wonderful device that many refer to as the ‘Sat Nav’. Whilst driving around I found myself getting increasingly annoyed at the sound of the woman’s voice and and the things that she was saying. “In 300 yards please take the second exit on to the A315” or “Please perform a U-turn where possible”. The more you hear it the more tedious it gets.
So I got my thinking hat on…

I’d like to make a Sat Nav that would say the things you’d expect to hear from a passenger in the car. You could have different settings.

You’re Wife – who would constantly nag at you and scream at when you go too fast. They would also give you completely the wrong directions.

You’re Mate – Who would always know a faster route? Making comments like “I said turn there you tool” and “Were f’cking lost mate’

You’re Dad – Who would give you an on route history lesson about each road you go down or each landmark you pass.

You’re Mum – Who wouldn’t direct you until the very last second. However when approaching turns they will say “Mmmm I think it’s this one…. Mmmmmm….Yes Yes that one that one that one…. NOW YOU’VE MISSED IT”

I think this would be a huge seller. Tom-Tom feel free to give me a call and we’ll work something out.
