I'm glad I brought this topic up. It seems that many people are tripped up by the grammar. I think the goal of having the distance instruction first makes perfect sense but trying to use a casual form of speech seems to be frustrating for some. I've been managing just fine after switching from "including street names" to "directions only (with themes)" as the navigation guidance setting but would still like to see(or hear) the correct grammar being used.

This is the one single thing about the client app that I wish Waze would change! My wife comments on the 'in one mile, get ready to turn right ' everytime we go somewhere. She hates it, its the only reason she refuses to use Waze, and has actually asked me to stop using it when she is in the car.

However, if you use the 'minimal' voice instruction instead of 'Full' it sounds a LOT better.

I still find the queuing of instructions for closely spaced junctions wrong. You'll get "in 800 metres get ready to turn left and then turn right"... why would I want to confuse everyone by getting ready for a left turn and then actually turn right? In such cases the get ready has to go.
