As people from the UK might know, MK has a fair few roundabouts and Garmin did a terrible job on them. Most of them are simple 4 way crossroad type but for almost all the "straight on" roundabouts, it said "turn left", despite the route shown on the display being correct.
Yep, thats one of the problems I had.

Hello everyone
I've been using Garmin mobile XT with city navigator europe v9 for a week now,
not as good as the tomtom interface but it works with the internal GPS so that makes up for it
the most annoying thing for me, is on the navigation window on the bottom left hand corner is speed (which is pointless as like everyone else i have a speedometer in the car!!) and the bottom right hand corner is the ETA which is completely hopeless!! the ETA is nowhere near realistic,
is there anyway of changing these, ie the speed for distance remaining (like on the tomtom) and customising the ETA (like on route 66)???
please tell me so otherwise i may have to go back to using tomtom

Same here, I'd be coming up to a roundabout and it will say 'Turn left' when actually the correct instruction is 'Take the second left' or 'Straight over'. That's just plain wrong.

The map shows the correct route - so why can't it say it correctly I wonder?

Is there anything you can do about this?

If not, this is a major-ish flaw in my opinion, because you have to keep looking at the map and can't trust what it says.

Funny, in the few roundabouts I've tried it tells me: "In the roundabout - take 2nd to the right" when I need to take the second exit.

Makes you better then I assume, by doing nothing but swearing at someone on the forum? Leave out the insults or have your posts deleted. Read the forum rules, you keep breaking them.

Really? Hmm, I don't think it's just my setup as a few others have posted the same problem here.

I wonder if it's a configuration option somewhere then?

Im not sure exactly what the problem is, need to try it again maybe.

I know there was definatly something bad about the roundabouts, as a number of times my GF and I looked at each other and went 'what??'.

She does suffer when I try out my new satnavs

Perhaps I should give it another go, especially if I can transfer it to my main memory card. I just remember being so unimpressed with it.

My limited experience with Garmin also tell me that roundabouts are messed up. I believed it was a result of Garmin being american and no roundabout over there, but I guess I am wrong then. Quite weird, especielly considering I should be running the same language version as Peter 321...

What build are you running, Peter321? Any special settings you've messed with?

For the record I'm using Version 4.10.20s60.9

Map is Metroguide Europe V9, UK map

I also have the base maps installed

Don't think I've changed any settings which would cause this problem - then again!

Are you using an external GPS Peter? I didn't think version .40 worked with the internal GPS on the N95.

Also, looks like we have different maps??
