Chili Ave.

Chili is not pronounced like the food or chilly weather. It should be a long I like eye. Ch-eye-l-eye

Yes, it was not correct (not naming names) :) and I corrected it. I agree, it should not matter.

Was north as "en" supposed to be fixed now? Other places seem to be ok recently. This is saying "en" still: [ img ]

I did not, I only did the manual map tile refresh. I have just done the TTS though. Other ones where this was wrong are ok now though. This was my first one I ran into since the updates. I'll report back if it does it again, thanks!

Jane is mispronouncing "Latta Road" in Greece, NY, as "Landa".

Both A's are pronounced as in "rat". (Jane actually gets this right)

Here's a UR for it, and I can confirm as I drive it frequently.

Interestingly enough it is pronounced correctly when I'm a few miles away from the exit on the local freeway, but it is pronounced incorrectly when I am about to exit.

This happens far from the freeway though. I cringe every time i drive it. ☺
