Forza Horizon will include a voice-activated GPS unit thanks to the wonders of Kinect.
Playground Games' design director Ralph Fulton explained the conecpt to Joystiq.
We received two recurring feedback points while we were looking at this game. The first one is really simple, people said 'This world so big, I found it really easy to get lost.' The second is kind of related to that, people said 'Sometimes I forget where I'm going, or what I want to do next.'" - Ralph Fulton, Playground Games
How does it work? The player can rattle off some commands to ask where their next race or nearest event is, and the GPS will put green arrows onto the roads guiding the player to their destination. A simple, yet effective integration of Kinect if we've ever seen one!
