MFT

Me: "Destination Intersection"

MFT: "First Street"

Me: "3rd Avenue"

MFT: "Please Choose"
[list of W 3rd Ave, E 3rd Ave, 3rd Ave without a direction, etc. appear on screen]


Me: "W 3rd Avenue" (and that's assuming I know which one it is - usually, I don't)

MFT: "Second Street"

Me: "High Street"

MFT: "Please Choose"
[list of N High St, S High St, High St without a direction, etc. appear on screen]


Me: "N High Street"

MFT: "When Ready, Press Set As Destination..."

^ Remember that this is the best-case scenario!

If that doesn't make you want to drive the car into the wall, I don't know what will. Contrast that with...


Google Maps

Me: "Map of 3rd Avenue and High Street, Columbus, Ohio."

^ That's it. And it finds it. The end.


I've resorted to using Google Maps on my phone, coupled with this app, to send complicated directions to the car via Sync Services. It's not a perfect solution, but it's faster than fighting with the system.

What mft are you using lol....

Me- navigation, destination

Ho- how would...(cut off by my button press)

Me- street address

Ho- please say the...(cut off)

Me-1234 easily spoken lane, Atlanta

Ho- when ready, say set as destination

Me- set

DONE
..................................

finding a gas station nearby:

Me- poi

Ho- where would...(cut off)

Me- nearby

Ho- name

Me- shell

Ho- please choose

Me- 3, set as destination

DONE

........................

In the un common event there are multiple destinations found or multiple pois, it lists them on the screen with numbers to choose from. You can even skip choosing one it saying set by just pressing it with your finger, which also btw works fine with gloves
