Keep commands in one (home) language

Post by Jethro-T
I have the language set to German but when I cross a border I get all prompts in the local language. Is there any chance to keep the prompts in my local language?

I'll reply in German, since he's germanspeaking ;)

Ja. Wenn du die navigationsstimme auf "Deutsch" stellst. Nicht steffi, nicht Yannick, nur deutsch.

How about a translation for the rest of us? As this is an international forum, English is the preferred language on the main pages - we do maintain support for others who don't speak english in the Board index ‹ Community ‹ Country (Language) Forums.

Hey Andy. Sorry for that.
;)
I just told him, that there are 3 German-files. (Female-including streetnames; male-including street names and female - just directions.)

If you choose the simple directions, the voice commands remain in German.

And I kindly asked him to ask the next time in the proper (German-speaking) Forum ;)

It was on purpose to choose the international forum as it is a general question not related to Germany.

Wouldn´t it make sense to keep the prompts in the selected language and add the streets in the local language (doesn´t make sense otherwise)?

Maybe I have to raise this as a feature request.
