Sat nav voice can't pronounce road names

Bought my wife a KL Limited with all the extras and so far with two exceptions it has been great. 1st was a rattle behind the dash and that was found to be no cable ties on the Uconnect loom. 2nd and ongoing is the Sat Nav can't pronounce strret names cutting them short or just not saying them. I have a 2014 GC and it is perfect on this score (other issues). Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a software fix - our dealer says no but you can't rely on them.

Re: Sat nav voice can't pronounce road names

SJand L - Thanks for this information on the nav road pronunciation update.
I have the same problem with my new Trailhawk and it drives me spare when using the navigation !

I will get the dealer to do this when I get the rest of my warranty issues looked at.

As a side to this issue , do you know if there any map updates available for Australia ? The date on mine seems to indicate a 2012 map , which I think is totally unacceptable for a 2014 vehicle.

The update works and it includes a map update so I hope it works for you too.

Thanks GregPur ,

Does the map update also give you speed camera locations ?

I have this option selected on in the Nav settings but I never get any camera alerts. Is this same with yours ?

Re: Sat nav voice can't pronounce road names

I am going to get the service bulletin done for this when I put my TH in to get its TIPM replaced.
I will let you know if this solves the issue.

Re: Sat nav voice can't pronounce road names

I have same issue but mine was built in March 2014. Will they still apply the TSB update or say it's not relevant to mine regardless of me telling them I have the problem. Surely the update won't do any harm.
