Honda of all companies is launching new technology using voice recognition software, that will allow drivers to speak to their cars for directions on the GPS system or even adjust the climate controls. The talking car feature will be available in the upcoming 2005 Acura RL out in October and the Honda Odyssey Minivan later this month. The two vehicles will be able to recognize over 700 commands. Even more astonishing is the fact that the car will recognize and respond to 1.7 million street names across the country.
