    Angry GPS Navigation Issue

    While navigating around the town, Navigator keeps saying same street name over and over gain. Follow I-235 for half a mile and again, this route/highway isn't even in my state. If my destination fay away it doesn't speak until my turn comes up, same on streets and other roads, follow I-235 for half a mile and turn right. Sometimes it just says turn right or left and nothing else. Anyone know how to fix this issue and if anyone had experience same problems?

    Good tip is to not use Cricket Navigator. I've always had problems with that program. I use Google Navigation or Waze, both of which are great.

    Thanks for the tip, I used google maps with built in navi and it never asked me to download speech synthesis i believe. I'll try g nav and post results later.

    Downloaded speech synthesis and it's only saying turns. I didn't like other maps, just because of all options available. Who else having same problem?

    Gio got it right...Waze is the best gps nav app....it's a pwr drain though so plan on a cigarette lighter charger with fast charging to run it...really good directions and get's u in the right lane well in advance of your exit...pretty good at keeping you out of the snarls too..excellent navigation commands/vocals given compare to google which gives no lane changes and just says turn left when you're 100 ft from intersection making you scramble to get in the right lane..
