Gaelic names

Just get people who can speak Irish properly to do the voiceover . You wouldn’t find a Cockney pronunciation of Spanish too popular in Spain ! Though it’s true the spoken word is generally English the placenames with Irish provenance and prominence are easily understood and recognised once correctly delivered according to local knowledge, which, after all is the purpose of the service, to bring you to your destination as identified, named and known!

What is with the Gaelic Place and Road names!?!

The use of Gaelic place names and road names is not only unimaginably irritating when you’re trying to follow a route it is also dangerous! More than once I have found myself distracted in heavy, and these days, fast moving traffic while trying to locate where the app was sending me when it used Gaelic street, road and town names. It’s all well and good giving the nod to the ‘cupla focal’ but get real Google, it’s downright dangerous! You’re in a predominantly English speaking market here, if you’re gonna play that game at least offer a choice to the majority who may not be fully conversant with not only the obscure Gaelic translation of place names but also the weird and bizarre pronunciation of the digital voice over!

Good but needs HGV / truck / bus mode and prevent music playing

Has car padestrians trains cyclists but not hgv? When im driving an articulated truck. The maps works food except it keeps wanting me to take the shortest route which is a no no. I need to be kept in the smoothest route or on the big wide roads etc also need low bridge warnings too. If ye can add that thatll save me 500 quid on truck nav. Also there should be local accents on each countries because some place names make me laugh. When I connect my phone to handsfree it automatically plays music im not sure if its the phone or the maps or the head unit that starts playing music without me asking it to. Gmaps is great for car users. Hopefully an update will fix those problems.
