Navigon Map Data and TTS just got worse, and seems to keep getting worser

    I have tried a couple of routes, and all of a sudden, It tells me to take I-10 towards "Rental Car"....and for some reason, wants me to get on 101 "N"...not north, but the letter N!

    I tested another route to go to my girlfriend's house, and it told me to go through a permanently locked fire gate.

    I have reported and reported these errors, but after subsequent, map updates. NOTHING....

    I am about ready to go buy Garmin Street Pilot app and somehow ask Apple for a refund for this crappy software.

    And you've used Garmin Street Pilot and it ALWAYS has correct map data and always updates after user feedback?

    This is a quirk I've noticed at times as well. It seems to come and go. At times the TTS will say "Turn left on I two-eight-zero" as opposed to "Turn left on I two eighty" and it sounds ridiculous. Not sure what's up there but I've had the same issue at (infrequent) times.

    If not already common knowledge, Garmin recently acquired Navigon. So the Navigon app will likely take a turn for the worse... so to speak.

    Yep, I'm nervous about Garmin's acquisition too. I might just lock up the current Mobile Navigon (v1.82) and never upgrade! I have a feeling Navigon will go downhill...
