What We Have Here is a Failure to Communicate

I'm impressed with the car's ability to understand spoken commands, but the failures can be pretty funny. Our two favorites:

Wife said, "Unfold mirrors," and the car said it didn't understand the command, "Unsolved murders."
I said "Play the Goldberg variations," and the car tried to play "the Goldfish variations."

Got any other examples?

No, not really, as I have been incredibly shocked as to how accurate it usually is. Even when I don't know the correct pronunciation of a street or point of interest, somehow the car always knows what I want.

The only exception I have is with the mirror folding, but in my case, UNFOLD MIRRORS works flawlessly, it's FOLD MIRRORS that it has a problem with. It almost always thinks I am saying "old mirrors". So basically I've taken to saying "FFFFFOLD MIRRORS".
