Nav girl pronunciation

Post by Dandock » Mon Aug 13, 2018 7:32 pm

Heidi the nav girl causes us constant amusement. Today we had the Pam Ayers-ish Aarrks-ford (Oxford) and Whaart-ford (Watford). And confusingly a mention of somewhere called Ring-ROAD!

What other oddities have been experienced?

My favourite is Way-eece - for Wales - when joining the M4 westbound from Bath. To be fair, Wales is mis-spelt in the system as Waies.

My Mercedes lady insists on saying M40 T-O-L-L when I’m up that way

Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 (3 litre, 367bhp) - in the end I went for that rather than a Macan S - sorry!

Nav girl pronunciation

When we drive to the Czech Republic, it's lucky we know the place names, haha! You could not have guessed it from the Heidi's pronunciation.

The way she pronounces the name of our road in the village is also funny. It's Merebank, but she goes Mehrehbunk.
Our stable:
- 991.2 Carrera S (2016) in Rhodium Silver with full Bordeaux leather interior
- 718 Cayman GTS (2018) in GT Silver with Crayon GTS interior
- ex: Macan S Diesel (MY2016), Macan Turbo (MY2017)
