Google Navigation says "Dest-o-nation" instead of "destination" Edward S. 4/21/13 1:31 PM
Is there an upcoming fix for the Google Maps Navigation app? After the last update, it says "and your 'destonation' will be on the right." Once you're close to the destination, it says "your destination is on the x" normally.

Though the mistake doesn't affect the function of the app, it bothers me that it's been out there so long.

I live in the north east, where the Navigation pronounces "destination" correctly.  I just came back from a 5 day stay in Atlanta Georgia and everywhere I went the Navigation said I was arriving at my dest-OH-nation.  The southern navigation lady should have a nice twangy accent to go with that.

The first time destination is pronounced (warning up upcoming destination) it is incorrectly pronounced as destOHnation.  When you have arrived at your destination, it is pronounced correctly.  It would seem to me that this is an easy bug to fix.

Noticed on Jellybean, latest release Maps on both LG Escape and Samsung Stratosphere II.
