Add Sound Effects for External Speaker

17

Now Implemented!

Description

Allow pre-recorded sounds and effects to be played through the external speaker (when equipped) to override standard pedestrian alert sounds.

Status

Perhaps include sounds such as V8, turbo, jetson spaceship, plane, train, rocket, etc. Drivers should also be able to add/import their own sounds (e.g. mp3 on a USB).

All-electric vehicles are now required to add safety sounds in multiple countries:

Implemented with the BOOMBOX feature in 2020 for cars that have the external pedestrian warning speaker.

I like the idea of using the clip-clop of horse hooves instead of just a beep.

It would be nice if could play music/radio/etc on outside speakers while washing the car or when working near the car.

I believe the legislation forbids manufacturers from modifying or defeating the now mandatory irritating noises in the US.

Users, on the other hand... <ahem>
