    Is Navigation able to announce North, South, East or West?

    The one thing that confuses me when I am using the navigational mode is when I come to an exit it will say something like

    "In 500 yards make left onto Highway Route 33 Many times I am not sure if it means the 1st or second ramp because they are both highway route 33.

    My Verizon phone would tell me north, south, east or west for turns on highways such as that.

    Can or will Street Deck do this?

    No, unfortunatly this data is just not provided in the map data for alot of streets that should have it.

    Is there different map data that we can use that will. It is rather strange to think that this product is so advanced but can't tell us which direction to go.
