I like to call it "the Cylon sound".


:lol: It is close to Cylon; wonder if we should add the red light? :geek:

You know, a red LED chaser would be pretty easy to make...

:D

I'm pretty sure it would be against the rules here in Oz.

I hear mine all the time (Canadian MY2018) as I drive slowly in and out of our carport. It's the only time I really notice it as the sound seems to be bounced off the wall of our home to the right and a short 2 foot high wall to the left.

I honestly don't think it's the right kind of noise... I have often been slowly driving behind people walking in parking lots and other scenarios... and I know they can hear the sound, but they generally start looking around and and sometimes even up before finally looking behind when they are then startled to realize I'm there.

It's not a sound that makes people think "oh a car is coming/is behind me." It's more of an "WTF is that faint weird noise?? Am I about to be abducted? Run!! Aliens!! Oh!, ha, it's just one of them new fangled electric doo-hickey mobiles..."

I must admit that I turn on Charge when I'm behind crawling along behind people who haven't noticed me, say in a car park. They're still much more attuned to the noise of an ICE than an extra-terrestrial sound ;)

This would a best practice worth spreading around for pedestrian sake,

And choking them to death on the exhaust fumes will serve them right for not paying attention :lol:

Would they have turned up the volume in MY2019/2020 cars? I can hear AVAS very clearly inside the car when driving up to 40 kmh.
Annoying "Hummm" all the time. I turn it off when I'm not in a busy pedestrian area and back on when in a city centre.
