  • Editing map data?

    This may be more of a Mappoint-related question, but I'm wondering if you can modify the way Streetdeck spits out the street info on maps.

    For example, there is one highway in my city that is called "Hwy 416", but in SD/Mappoint, it's called "Hwy 416/Rte 416/Hwy 401/Rte 401". So, when the Navigation voice comes on, it says that entire sequence, and even says the word "slash" every time a "/" appears. By the time the NAV voice finishes saying the whole highway name, I'm already on another street!!

    The funny part is that Streetdeck actually displays just the simple name of the highway in the on-screen text directions, so i'm guessing it's truncating that information somehow (or maybe the text directions are just different than the voice directions?)...

    I guess what I'm trying to ask here is: Is there a way for the NAV voice to read the simple name instead of the long convoluted one? Or better yet, is there a way to modify the Mappoint street data that Streetdeck reads from?

    Thanks in advance!

    Theres no way to modify it.

    The way streetdeck speaks directions is already being significantly revised for becuase of this and some other issues with it though. Developer (I am Chuck)
