Siri voice

Get rid of the computer voice already-with the chips and storage of today how hard would it be really to get thousands of the most commonly used words recorded and then put back into sentence form with a nice real human voice?

wow, you clearly have never used MyFordTouch (MFT) or talk to anyone who has for more than a minute, it is the joke of the auto world and the bain for most that own ford with it. i own a Flex and it is the only thing about the whole car I dont love. I hate it on so many levels. There are other folks that actually bought a lower trim model Flex and gave up other things they really wanted just so they could get a dash without MFT in it!

Im doing major work to put a iPad mini in my Flex to free myself from MFT as much as i can as fast as i can

Mercedes-Benz already has it in their A-Class. And it will be coming to all future model revisions.

Here is a sneak peak of the system in the A-Class:

Mercedes-Benz plans on improving this integration in coming models.

whats new?

could be missing something but i have already found that when iPhone is connected to a car stereo via bluetooth that Siri functions eyes free already.
as in, instead of just showing a result to a voice enquiry, siri reads the result out (which isn't done when requests are made directly on the phone)
examples being, "open text message" and having siri read it out.

I work @ a cell phone store and Ford Sync is the ONLY bt system I flat out refuse to configure for customers. I think it is a headache inducing cludgy mess. Maybe they have vastly improved??
