Just curious if anybody else has noticed a quirk that my husband and I have noticed with our Fiestas.
Each of us got 2012 Fiesta Titaniums within a month of each other. He got his first; I loved his car so much that I traded in my 9-year-old Audi S3 a year before I'd planned, and I got a Fiesta Titanium as well. We've been learning the voice commands for the Sony system. Now, I should add that I'm American by birth, while my husband is English.
I couldn't get my car's system to recognize it when I said "iPod". I tried saying it fast, slow, as EYE-Pod, as eye-POD, and as EYEPOD. Nothing. So I figured it was my accent.
When my husband got home from work, I asked him to try saying "IPod" in my car. The system couldn't understand HIM either, so it wasn't an accent issue.
After a lot of fiddling, he discovered that we have to pronounce the term as more like "eye-pud" to get the system to positively respond. We got into his Fiesta, and the situation was exactly the same...so it wasn't just a quirk of my car!
So I'm just curious if anybody else has noticed this. It causes great amusement with my passengers when I say "eye-pud" to my car, and the female voice responds with "eye-pod"!
