    Voice Doesn't Always Announce Distance

    When using the new D3 frontend (mad props NM) it seems like the voice doesn't always announce distance to the next turn. For example, if a right turn is coming up the voice will say "Right turn ahead, ___ yards." In some situations it will actually say the distance (ie 500, 200). Other times, it doesn't say anything, so it sounds like "Right turn ahead, yards." Any ideas?

    Common issue with Destinator.

    Unfortunately nothing that can be done from our point of view.

    This problem was in the old v.2 SDK of Destinator.

    With the D3 1.1.2 by Ninja and perfectly resolved the problem messages.
    Now happens (and not to all) with the Beta version, but Ninja has specified that and a Beta version, and therefore in phase of development......

    We give time to Ninja to work serenely .....

    Cool I had noticed this in Version 1.1.3 Beta1 but had noticed it wasn't there in 1.1.2 Is it necessarily D2 or 3 thats the issue or is it attributed to the source sound files? Nice work on this BTW Ninja!!!

    I've not changed anything that affects how the SDK works

    Perhaps it's just random?

    The boys are right Ninja.

    In the v.1.1.2 the messages are perfect, in the beta 1.1.3 instead also I have seen that the vocal messages are broken.

    The second beta version I dont have used in my car.

    I don't think there's anything I can do. Destinator since version 2 (maybe even 1!) has had this problem...Powerloc must keep using the same crappy code for voice...
