    I didn't notice this unless yesterday when I began a short journey. Instead of turn left onto ABC Street, take the 880 North Exit, etc it just says "turn left," "take the exit," etc.

    I did some Googling and found other users with the same issue. They all had to revert back to the factory installed version of Maps. I did the same and the spoken turn-by-turn is functional again.

    Anybody else experiencing this issue?

    I had the same issue as well. Thought I going crazy. I'll try un-installing the update as you have all suggested. I hope it works.

    Just tried it to no avail. I still don't get the street names called out as before. I don't know what to do...

    Google pushed out a few updates since I first recognized the problem. With the latest Maps update, audible turn-by-turn is working again. Try updating and see if it works.

    Thanks for the suggestion/reply. I've tried all that and still don't get the street names called out as before. Ah well... I guess I won't be using Navigation until it's resolved with a future update.

    It used to be a British male voice right? I have some robotic female voice now and I hate it. Way less detailed and blunt.

    Yeah, that's right. For me, it would switch between the male voice and a non-robotic female voice. Now it's just the robotic female voice and no street names, just "turn right" or "turn left" which isn't very useful.

    Maybe it's your carrier, or your model phone (US vs. International), but on my Verizon US stock SG3, I STILL have the turn-by-turn directions, including the street names, in Google Navigation.

    If you're using Google maps, can't respond to that since I don't use it for navigation.

    Apparently "uninstalling updates" in the Maps App info is a fix that worked for a lot of people. Worst case scenario, just update again in Google Play.

    Mine works (using default maps app). Sprint S3.

    I locate where I want and i can scroll through each step but if I hit that button at the bottom right (the arrow) it goes to turn by turn navigation.

    As said above maybe it's a carrier function. I use my Verizon S3 as a GPS and it does name the streets.
