I always thought that it was an impending warning, bit like a sat-nav advising speed control etc?.

My Samsung S3 chimes to notify me of incoming Messages.

looks link your link might be right, the last chime was at a roundabout and cannot remember instuctions being spoken.

first noticed it only a few weeks ago driving down to weymouth had loads of chimes sound even stopped to check the phone thinking it was a missed call or something, quiet annoying when you do not know the reason
