I am afraid your Impala needs special training so that it thinks faster and can catch the whole sentence.

That last one - the Impala - is an old one. Using BT for directions can mean losing the first part of an announcement. Some users asked for a (variable) lead-in so that the BT can do its magic BEFORE the real part of the direction comes.

Could the user be talking about a Chevron brand gas station?

Almost certainly, however it struck me as funny.
Also, in that case, there was no obvious place nearby to put a gas-station-landmark.

Interesting.

The only problem I have had with my BT is that, until the latest client update, the volume would change after I used voice to send a hazard report.

The BT volume control had no lasting effect.

The voice sensitivity would also drop so that I could not use voice to post any more hazard reports. They seem to have fixed it.

Type the words "CONST ZN" on each road segment, which will probably generate more URs because it won't be pronounced properly in TTS.
