Funny Story with new Convertible
After picking up my new convertible from the dealer, I was driving my wife back to pick up my old car. It was dark by now, but the traffic was still heavy. I was pointing out all the features of the car to her as we rode; XM radio, HUD, etc. A fire truck approached us flashing blues & reds, so we pull to the side. After he passed, we turned on the next street.

Immediately, the HUD flashed; "THE POLICE ARE ON MY BACK". I whipped my head all around, but never saw a cop!

"What the hell, this is one smart car!".

...turned out to be the name of the song that came up on XM radio.:facepalm: :sm0: :bellyroll:

Your XM radio come across the HUD?

Yeah. It normally displays the Tach and digital speed. But when the song changes on the radio (XM or Ipod or Flashdrive), it displays the song title and artist for a second. If you adjust your cruise control speed, it tells you what it was adjusted to. If your phone is connected by Bluetooth, it shows the number, or name of the person calling you on the HUD as well.

and to add insult to injury...
I'm sitting here at 11:00 tonight trying to get my Onstar Link to work on my smartphone. Took quite awhile to register, load app, set profile info, and register phone ID. Finally, try to test it by using the phone to beep the horn and flash the lights. I'm sitting in the office which shares a wall with the garage. I thought I'd be able to hear one quick beep through the wall. It took a few seconds, but all hell broke loose in the garage when the car alarm went off! I'm running around the house trying to remember where I left the car keys to shut it off. But I'm thinking if anyone hears it, they won't be able to tell which car it is because its in the garage.

I run out to the driveway. The headlights were flashing through the cracks of the garage door like ET had crashed into the house! By the time I kill it, all the neighbors are awake and peeking out their windows at me. I then realize I'm standing in the driveway in my boxer shorts...

I'm sure in the morning I'll hear all about how impressed they all are with my new car... isn't technology wonderful???

:facepalm: :facepalm: :facepalm:
