yer nice trick just wish it give you 2-3 seconds to chose what you doing, sometimes it wont shut up if u know what u doing i,e setting the sat nav manualy.
Quick question why cant it say more than 15 letters and when in the ex you get plenty of space for 30+ , it annoying when you got say a 20 letter title and it says only first 15 letter and wont even display the rest of the title on the bottom screen
also why doesn't it follow the track list when the system plays a diffent folder or after the 3rd track i know the blue box highlight whats playing but after track 3 its gone out of sight ? even worse when the traffic report finshes and it goes back to mp3 it tell you which folder it started on ,not what folder you was in ????
Sorry rant over but this annoyes me

This is getting off topic now, sorry for that.
The UK test is supposed to be one of the most strict driving test in the world. With regards to driving, they say you should always be looking mostly in the direction of travel, that's the only way to see safely what is happening in the direction you are driving. This has to be the way I teach learner drivers. I admit to relying a little too much on my mirrors reversing occasionally
With theory tests, there is a basic test for car drivers, one for motorcysles, one for HGVs, and one for PCVs. Each test is different and relevant to the class of vehicle.
As far as reading track details out, is it confirmed as an EX feature?

Do you have to redo your theoretic exam for each different category you drive over there to?
scooter/car/motorcycle/lorry/bus/humongous 'exceptional convoy' beasts are 6 different theoretic exams here, yet roadsigns from car & up are all the same. rip*cough*off
And the children thingie... you should've seen and passed them before you started parking, unless they walk 50 km/h
Also my future kids will get slapped if they do something that stupid o_O

I don't even dare put my CDs in the player when the missus is in the car with me.
No sounds from my sport as of yet. More tinkering about to do I suppose, as soon as I get her back!

So, are we saying its just an EX thing?
Still not sure its the confirmation thingy cos I have that turned off and did change the climate control a couple of times on the way to work with out voices, but changing from Thunder to The Quireboys on the cd prompted it to say so, and without complaining about my musical taste, so much better than the wife being there!!!!!!

BAck on topic. I am wishing I had en EX now, just so I can hear it tell me what music I am listening too. It is a bit of a gimmik, but I want it!

|Maldax||I turned it on on mine for 5 Mins yesterday! What fun!!! Turned it off again|

|TTDegs||I can't confirm if it is that which does it, but yes, my command confirmation is turned on...|
|8th November 2006 15:06|
Thanks, sounds like it must be the "command confirmation" that turns it on.

|Civic Engineer||I haven't the foggiest, it not like I was looking for this feature it just appeared. only thing i know so far is that it works with mp3's and the radio and you have to be using the jog dial while actually moving|
|8th November 2006 14:58|
|pcr||If it's not the "command confirmation" option that enables this feature then what is it ? I certainly am not hearing these voices.|
|8th November 2006 12:02|
|Civic Engineer||I think its just "on" I haven't changed anything to my knowledge. I don't think it is the confirmation "thang" anyway as I have actually turned that off (don't ask how cos it was 5 mins after reading the manual)|

|Civic Engineer||despite my earlier comment, i don't actually find rear visability a problem, i was just using other owners experiences to make a light hearted response (sorry to all those who really have a problem)|
|8th November 2006 11:58|
|richierich||So how does one activate said option?|
|8th November 2006 11:49|
The read-back thing only happens when moving - as my daughter has great fun when she gets to sit in the front seat and choose our listening 'pleasure'
There's possibly a speed level (maybe 10mph?) below which it seems to think you're safe enough to look at what you're doing
|8th November 2006 11:33|
|Civic Engineer||Just to confirm, the voices I heard only come on when driving. I worked this morning with MP3 CD and radio stations. Pretty cool I think. I didn't try it with climate control but it didn't say anthing when i turned off the heated mirrors|
