    Why wont it handle roundabouts properly?

    I have searched on this subject but it seems no one else has this problem....

    I am using MM and destinator 3. It is a good combo but for some reason it doesnt handle roundabouts properly. Rather that saying something like, "In 200 yards take the 3rd exit" it says, "In 200 yards turn right followed by turn right"

    Is there a reason for this happening its starting to make the directions hard to follow and need to look at the screen to see where to go?

    Also something minor, when going down the motorway it tells me to "keep right" at every motorway junction which is quite annoying, but I guess there is nothing we can do about that one.

    If anyone can help with the roundabout issue though I would appreciate it greatly


    Cheers,


    Richard

    I think it depends on the version of your maps. I've got Destinator 3.0.75 and don't have the problems you seem to have.

    This is the map I am using

    Current Map UK:

    UK and the Irish republic
    Version 2003.Q2.2071 Flag of sub graph generation, High Level Graph, MLC

    Is this not new enough? If not anyone know where to get a more recent version of this map? I got it off the destinator 3 cd.


    Cheers,

    Damn, seems like my map is well out of date. Anyone know where I can get hold of a newer map that will work properly?
