Default Google Navigation Not Saying Street Names

Tried using Google Navigation last night. All the voice said was "turn left" or "turn right". It did not say the street names. Anyone else have this problem? I'm running stock 4.0.2 on my Verizon Galaxy Nexus.

Sorry, I thought your join date was your post date! So far I've cleared my Maps data (did not fix it) and I've uninstalled updates (DID fix it). So something in the latest Maps update broke it. I wish I could update to the second to latest, the release version is like going back to the stone age!

Aw man, that sucks. I check current same device reviews whenever there's an update for most things, but for Google apps, I usually just trust that it'll be fine. I looked up reviews just now and a lot of people with the same phone said something about it-- I'm guessing it's an issue for all G'Nex phones, if not all phones.

I've opened Android defect 29811 to track this. Clearly, the recent Map updates breaks something. Uninstalling the updates does restore the street names but, of course, you lose some new function.

Default Same problem here

I discovered this bug yesterday, and spent a while rebooting, fiddling with settings, installing "SpeechSynthesis" which it turns out was not relevant, and clearing the cache on Google TTS Engine. I had to keep pulling over to the side of the road to try something new.

No luck so far.

This reminds me of a jam I got into on my OG droid when I installed the SVOX speech engine because I was sick of the tinny navigation voice. The SVOX voices were great, but at some point a Google Maps update rendered them inoperative, and the navigation voice reverted first to just chimes when it wanted to say something, and eventually to the "no street name" version we're experiencing now. I had to uninstall the SVOX voices on my OG Droid and lived with Nasal Nellie until I got rid of the device.

This indicates to me that it's definitely a result of something that has changed in the speech engine. But interestingly, the new voice of Google Maps is much nicer than the one you get in the Settings > Language and Input> Text to speech output > Listen to an example. So I'm thinking that the Galaxy Nexus is using a separate speech module of some sort for navigation. I don't know where it lives, how you fix it, or what went wrong with the latest Maps to break it.

I'm sure that the previous commenter's note about removing updates will work -- but I'd prefer not to lose the other new features. It is possible to navigate with these minimal voice prompts. I was traveling around yesterday to unfamiliar places and managed OK. So I may hang on longer to see if Google updates this thing.

I'm having the same issue.

Text-to-speech in Navigation seems kind of freaky... before this started, I noticed the voice randomly changing. Haven't heard that happen since it stopped saying street names.

Me too. Stock 4.0.2 Vzw Nexus. Strongly dislike these voice prompts. Doesn't even say distances. Just Turn Left, Turn Right, Take the exit on the right.

This is frustrating! I uninstalled the updates so I can get the street names back. I depend on navigation every day. This needs to be fixed soon.

Default Still no street names with Google Nav

Why is it taking so long for Google to notice/fix the missing street names and distances in the Nav app? It's one of the key Droid features that made fanboys pant. It's AWFUL without that info.

Totally agree. Voice turn-by-turn Navigation was one of the "killer apps" that brought me to Android over iPhone in the early days. I'm very disappointed that the only way to bring it back is to uninstall updates.

Crash, Outatime: a week or so ago the Nav App had an update and ever since stopped verbalizing street names and some distances to turns. Were it used to say, "in a 1/4 mile, turn left on State Street"; now it just says "in a 1/4 mile, turn left" and sometimes only "turn left". In a big city with exits close to each other, the names were most helpful. You can still look down at the map and header, but no longer verbalized. Also, it seems to have stopped the advance warnings. It used to say ""in a 1/4 mile, turn left on State Street. Then, keep left". No more "Then"'s. I'm assuming it's an error, but speculation that it was easier to internationalize broader without the street names. We shall see...

To be more specific, it was the Maps app that had the update. And the Navigation app is part of the Maps app, along with (I think) Places. Right?

Unfortunately, I went ahead with the update without checking reviews of the newest version. I usually check that for apps that I depend on, but with it being a Google app, I just assumed that it was good.

It is possible to revert back to the original version that came with the phone, but it's not possible to go back one version/ update.

I hadn't heard that about the possibility of it being an intentional thing. Does the theory have any credibility? Don't non-ICS phones still have it with the update?

Weird. I just used it 2 days ago and had none of the issues you are describing. I had the most current updates as well since I updated it when it came out. I wasn't even able to see the display either since I was on the motorcycle with the phone in my pocket and bluetooth to my helmet. I was really relying on the directions too since I didn't know where I was going and it was flawless.

Maybe it's something to do with how the update installs or what I running when the update comes down?

I just tried it out and got no street names until I uninstalled the update. All I got was head east and turn right, no street names at all.

I noticed yesterday I had no street names and was wondering wtf was going on. Uninstalled the latest update, and spoken street names are back.

It seems a lot of SGN owners are reporting this problem in the Market reviews - might be an ICS bug.

Has this issue been addressed by any of the mobile tech blogs? I'm on the AF app so I can't tip this to Phandroid. It would be nice to get something official from Google on this.

It sure wouldn't hurt if Google stepped up their outreach a little. How are we to know if it's a bug or intentional?

Maybe someone from Google will see it.

Yes I dropped them a line asking if they could give it a little more attention...I'm Scott/Flipper....All and all the responses look like it is VERY common on 4.0.2 and map 6.6.0

Sounds like they're saying that you have to wait til official 4.0.4 to fix it. Don't know if I believe that or not.

How does one go about installing another voice-- assuming everything else was working correctly?

Has anyone else experienced horrible directions over the last month or so? It is getting to the point where it tells me to drive past my destination do a U turn and come back when all I had to do was make a left into the destination. It has also been routing me way out of the way last week it added at least five miles to a trip when a more direct route would have been easier to take.

This would not be a big deal but having just moved it is extremely annoying.

Hi Everyone,


Thanks for reporting your issue with release 6.6.


Our team is working to investigate this issue. Please answer the following question if possible:


1. Where is there locale on your phone. Go into Google Maps>Menu>Settings>About and look at your Locale. (i.e. en_US) and tell us what that says.


2. Please check that text-to-speech is working on your phone. You can do so by checking if an app like Google Translate (which they can download from Google Play) can playback text or by going to Settings > Language & input > Text-to-speech output > Listen to an example.

3. Also are you experiencing this issue in all areas? Or just in areas where you have poor network/data connection?


5. Lastly if you have not done so, please let us know what version your on for Android (i.e. 4.0.2, 4.0.4, etc).




Thanks! This information will help us investigate what's going on, and thanks for your patience. Once I get some responses, I'll report back to the team and provide updates as soon as they are available.



Cheers,
Cindy

Maybe 6.7 will resolve this issue? Just released.

I'm not sure how you've determined that it's "still broken". It announced the street names for me.

I determined it still broken because it is not announcing street names for me...

So, I uninstalled the updates a few days ago to get the street names back but I have noticed that the Maps app is now eating a lot of battery since I unistalled the updates even though it is not being used and GPS is off. Anyone else see this?

I installed the updates again and the Maps battery drain issue went away. Would rather deal with no street names than increased battery drain.

I'll take a loss in street names over what it was doing last time! Namely, it (she) was reading the XML code!

"Slash slash colon w w w dot blahblah dot com slash" etc. It was INSANE! lol I have a British babe doing my nav thing via SVOX and the whole situation has been nothing but a pain in the ass. And now, Google has broken a pretty important feature of a Google phone. With a Google update. Of a Google app.

And I too have intermittent changing of voices. From the British babe to the standard robot directional ho to a really super-sexy American woman who only very occasionally tells me to turn right in 500 feet or some such thing. Wish I could get her to talk all the time. ANYway, I must have my Brit babe back saying street names! She butchers so many of them, it's hilarious. Sexy and hilarious.

What in the wide wide world of sports is a-goin' ON here!

Nope. It's an issue that Google is aware of and working on.
