The New Car Blog: Part 1.5

So awesome:

You: "Find nearest gas station."
Civic: "Audio off."

We're still getting to know each other.

The New Car Blog: Part One

Okay, okay, so things have been somewhat slow here for a while. Your attention has been elsewhere with the immenence of previously mentioned plans.

Fortunately the first phase of your plan is now complete with the introduction of a new car.

It's a 2006 Honda Civic EX coupe with an automatic transmission and the GPS navigation package. You purchased it this past Tuesday and took delivery on Wednesday. Since then you've put close to 200 miles on it and still have half a tank of gas.

Those clever Japanese engineers.

This car is so much fun to drive its ridiculous. The Navi is voice activated and includes voice control of the audio system too. You still haven't learned all of the voice commands yet but there's just something about being able to ask your car to "Find the nearest vegetarian restaurant" and having it:

  1. Find all vegetarian restaurants within a 25 mile radius

  2. Ask you if you'd like it to plot the route to the nearest result

That's just cool.

More as it have to drive...somewhere... ;-P
