‘Jump Mode’

I was talking under my breath today and hit the voice command button. Whatever she heard, she came back and said ‘Jump Mode Activated,” this occuring as I am looking through my HUD and notice I am seeing 88mph and suddenly a big smile (and a little panic) set in and I quickly hit the voice control button again and said ‘Jump,’ and she said ‘ Deactivated Jump Mode.’

Someone please tell me what the hell this is and I am on my way out into the garage to see what happens when I say ‘machine gun.’ THIS CAR IS SWWWWWEEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!

Mehh, This is old technology...

Knight Rider had this back in the 80s. I believe it was called "Turbo Boost"


Seriously though, I'm curious what this is. I gotta try it.

It has to do with Sirius. You can program a traffic "jump" channel/region to switch to instantly to listen to updated traffic and weather.

Page 198 in the manual.
