A polite way of saying "you screwed up, idiot, try it again."

A GPS says "recalculating" after you miss a turn it told you to take, then it comes up with a new route based on your current position. It doesn't call you a dumbass, it simply says "recalculating" which lets everyone in the car know you are a dumbass without it having to actually say so.
Dude #1: Have some of these great nachos I just made.

Dude #2: Recalculating. Try cheese.

Guy: I'm thinking you're coming home with me tonight.

While this term is usually heard when you miss a turn and your GPS unit in your car has to "recalculate" your route to get you to the desired location.

It is also the term to describe a persons life when it does not go as planned.

The worst possible thing that you can hear in your car when using a GPS. There are few other sounds on Earth that can invoke a manic state so quickly.
