Feel good tomtom

Atta boy!
  [vote for,

I bought my wife a Tomtom for her birthday today/tomorrow. (that is a brandname for a navigation device)

My daughter has a toddlers laptop that says things like: well done! if she presses the right button.

I would like such a feature on the Tomtom.

Lady says: turn left here

I turn left

Lady says: well done!

I do not exceed the speedlimit

Lady says: You are a responsible driver!

Just a little positive feedback and encouragement. Soon I'll be talking back to it.

Lady says: you have reached your destination, phew we made it in one piece!

Yay! http://home2.swipne...134/nmm/bubbleb.mid
Once you arrive at your destination, it could play you a little victory tune. [zen_tom, May 29 2007]


       Easy enough to build into a Tomtom, and should be able to be switched off. But not truly new and amazing, though it would sell. I threw in a croissant, just to balance the Autoboner.

       Is there a "doubtful spouse" setting?   

       "Did you mean to turn there?"   

       "I'll bet you didn't hit that tree yesterday."   

       "Smile politely for the officer."

       Every one in a while, it should be wrong, admit its mistake, and politely apologize.

       ...like "sorry I sent you down a one-way street, oops".

       "Turn next left, I hope you can swim"

       thanks [zenozeno] I'll do my best.

       "You've made good time... but you can do better. Next mile & 1/2 in 180 seconds. GO!!!"
"Off the brakes"
"Full lock left, back right."
"Chicane ahead"
"New lap record!"

       *That's* a feel good SatNav.

       "Easy right, maybe," always made me chuckle.
