    Circles and Roundabouts

    Does anyone else have this problem with MM and UK D3 maps?

    Whenever I get to a roundabout, instead of telling me to "take the second exit" (for example) that darn woman tells me to "turn right, followed by turn left".

    It's annoying to say the least and didn't happen when I tried out CF and it's built-in Destinator. I can only assume it's because of the D3 maps.

    Any help or advice here would be gratefully received (even if you just tell me "that's the way it is, live with it).





    For info, I'm using EnglishUK voices and All visualisations.

    My DestinatorVoiceManeuvers.inf file looks like this:

    This is a map problem, I think it's those MIO maps that were floating around that did this, switch to the 2005(?) maps from a D3 CD and it should work fine.
