A BRITISH mother has been left gobsmacked after her sat nav repeatedly called her for a “motherf****r” when giving directions.
Tracy Dockerwill, of Buckinghamshire, was shocked when the potty-mouthed voice on her TomTom began swearing at her six months ago.
Since then, the sat nav has spewed out filthy directions such as “turn right ar**hole” and “you have reached your destination motherf****r”.
The 53-year-old mother is convinced the machine is getting revenge on her for constantly shouting at it when she drives in the wrong.
She said: “It was a bit like it was my dirty secret and I felt a bit ashamed.
“I did wonder if I was hearing things at first.
“I’ve been using it for months with a lady’s voice and then all of a sudden one day it said ‘turn right a**ehole’ in a chap’s voice – well I nearly crashed the car.
“I remember thinking ‘oh my god this is dreadful’ and told it ‘I can’t believe you’re talking to me like that’ then all of a sudden it swore at me again but even worse.
“It then said ‘you have reached your destination motherf***er’.
“It’s like it’s possessed. You can imagine how shocked I was.”
According to TomTom, Tracy’s device was likely tampered with by a previous cheeky owner as the model allows you to record your own voice guidance.
But she is adamant that her sister who gifted her the sat nav 12 months ago would not do it.
Tracy said: “It’s hit and miss, he doesn’t come on all the time.
“If I delay in taking the turning because of traffic or I go past a turning that’s when he generally starts.
“As I’m driving along I start to think the horrible man has gone away and it’s just the nice lady and then all of a sudden when you least expect it the chap butts in and he starts again.
“When I started using it it used to get me lost even more so I used to have rows with it.
“I would shout ‘you’re a stupid sat nav, you don’t have a clue where we’re going, I’m not listening to you anymore.
“All of a sudden it just started talking to me and swearing at me, I was most put out.”
