Great. I just got over 8-track's. I suppose they'll discontinue cassettes next.

 

Was at my parents house last week, they still have a nice Technics turntable, a JVC tape deck, and a Sony reel-to-reel machine as well.  His A/V receiver has a phono input as well.  Noting that plays wax though!

It seems that vinyl is making a comeback.  Maybe Ford will reintroduce the record player they had in Lincolns in the 60s.

Regrets...not really, but maybe disappointed that it should have been better. My tyres have worn out at 11k miles, I have some other faults too. But the design issues are bugging me most. The Sat nav voice control  only allows a full address (house number, street and town. ) I would prefer to have other more important controls on the 'voice', such as "Demist Front Screen" etc.... although it does answer for the nearest coffer shop... but not the nearest fuel !!!. Ambient light colours are a bit pathetic, only noticeable if I point it out to people. Parcel shelf/torneo(sp) cover is poor. And the hand book looks so cheap, printed on toilet paper. (should I expect more from a £39 000 car?

I like the large space, heated and cooled seats, voice controlled audio. Would I buy another?  I would rather a Landrover Discovery but the Edge is 2/3rds of the price.

Not well documented but if you say "I need gas" the nav system will list nearby gas stations (I don't know if "petrol" works).  Similarly, "I'm hungry" will list restaurants, "I'm thirsty" will list coffee shops, "I'm hurt" will list hospitals, but "I'm bleeding" will list police stations. :doh:

I've never tried it... it's my wife's vehicle and not worth the life sentence that would generate.

 

BTW, I also found that the appropriate profanity (as in "f-o") is the same as cancel.  It happened when I was getting very frustrated trying to get it to respond to voice commands.  Sometimes it seems like I can say "call home" and it will respond "deploying airbags".
