Why no text-to-speech on satnav?

Why, when text-to-speech is used throughout the system, is it *not* used in the satnav to read out place / street names? Werid.

Good point

I actually have my SatNav voice turned off. Quite happy with the visuals and not having the radio constantly muted.

I'd have thought it would be a natural extension of the TTS engine to have it used in the satnav, a la TomTom, Garmin and pretty much every other satnav manufacturer in the world.

TTS gets on my nerves!

In eight hundred meters take five bee five thousand two hundred and eighty seven to Milton. (TTG 750 telling me to exit at Junction 5 on the B5287 to Milton Keynes or whatever).
