    In addition to the robotic voice on the nav app, another thing that bugs the hell out of me is when it tells you to turn onto a doctor instead of a drive. You would think that the developers would either 1. do not abbreviate things like Dr., Ln., Blvd., or Ave., or 2. they would adjust the software to recognize these abbreviations and have the voice speak them properly.

    I think it just uses text to speech (which is used throughout Google) so perhaps modifying it for streets would also modify for it for reading that (and you'd end up with something like "You have an appointment at 3:00 at Drive Smith" instead of "Doctor Smith")

    Just a hunch...

    I assume programming in something like "if in Navigation, say 'Drive' Else say 'Doctor'" is probably a bit too much work for this one little quirk.
