Short announcements like "This is a Brooklyn bound Q express train" are better than long announcements like "This is a Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue bound F local train".

How can you replace the last stop in the last borough?

One could hope that these announcements can be updated remotely? Or is a physical "plug-in" required?

 

I believe it was mentioned at some prior point here on the board that not only is a physical plug-in required, but it can only be done by the manufacturer. So a kawasaki/alstom/bombardier rep has to come out, board the train, and plug in a laptop? (or was it a floppy disc, I don't even know) to the on board computer to update station names and announcements.

Well, maybe by reducing the lenght of the station name in announcement, I don't think that the full station should be pronounced when it is composed of four words.

Instead of saying "this is a Jackson Heights Roosevelt Avenue bound F local train", announcement could say "this is a Jackson Heights bound F local train", this is enough in my opinion as there is only one Jackson Heights station in the F subway.

Yea, they just spliced up the entire announcement and it sounds a mess.
