Voice directions suggestion


  • Hi,

    Just used your Navigator app (android) in Cyprus on an HTC Sensation.  The App itself is very good and precise (EXCELLENT WORK!!) – the only thing I would suggest is that you change the way the voice directions are spoken as it can be very confusing at times.  If you are approaching a turn the voice says “Turn Right” or “Turn Left” and then after a brief pause it then continues with something like “in 500 yrds”.  It should be changed so that the distance is stated first then the direction you need to turn as when it says “turn left” or “turn right” the driver instantly reacts thinking the turn is now.

    It would be a lot easier to follow if the app said for example  “in 500 yrds turn left or right” rather than “turn Right” pause “in 500 yrds” or “Turn left” pause “in 200 yrds” etc.

    Hope this feedback helps improve an already excellent app.

    Regards
