Are our cars getting too technical?

Modern day vehicles just keep on getting smarter, in fact car manufacturers seem to chomping at the bit to out modernize the other with whose vehicle is more modern. Have you ever tried to change a clock on a car? The older ones it seems easier, you have two buttons, that’s it. However now that just doesn’t seem good enough.

An example of this is cars with a GPS. Some vehicles require the system to be re-programmed to set the time. The navigation system comes with a CD that contains details of the geographic area and territory as set by the selling dealer. The vehicle then links up with the appropriate satellite that provides the GPS guidance.

This disc must be initialized into your navigation system to set the correct time zone and recognized landmarks. Once the time zone is set, you must activate daylight savings to get the correct time displayed for your location.

Another example is scrolling through your radio tuner one frequency at a time. I’d much rather choose the station myself, not arrive at what the radio thinks is the next best frequency. There are now multiple ways of scanning the radio air waves, and if you do not set the parameters properly, you’ll find you car radio jumping all over the frequency bands.

Driving facts you never would have thought of.

There are some odd laws out there, but there are even more odd facts about driving out there. there’s someones cousin who’s told you about how they were turned away from the boarder for smoking pot once. Which ultimately ruined their cross country road trip with the kids that they’ve been planning for weeks.

There are some other odd ones out there, you can be charged for leaving your older kids in the car, or even if someone takes a picture of you while you are texting and driving.. I think there’s a bit of contradiction going on there but nonetheless, it can still happen.
