I came across an interesting difference between the 2008 and 2009 maps and the voice trigger on my Nuvi 750.
There's a traffic circle near work that gets handled differently:
2008 Map selected:
"Drive .4 miles, then enter roundabout."
As I enter the circle:
"Enter roundabout, then take third exit"
2009 Map selected:
"Drive .4 miles, then bear right."
As I approach the third exit:
What's interesting is that there's no difference in the actual map graphic, but there's some "behind-the-scenes" change which is triggering the Garmin differently.
Granted, enabling TTS will add the road name, but if I'm in unfamiliar territory, I think the first one would be much more informative. I'd like a heads-up on the traffic circle and exit ahead! Why would they remove that? I'm assuming the culprit is NavTeq here.
A step backward, says I.
Any one else notice a similar occurance?
I would agree with your comment regarding the info that there is a roundabout ahead. Definitely handle these things differently from a speed and a safety approach. Don't care for them much and wish they would go away but such was the way roads were designed years ago.
