Are you saying you only get the exit announced when you are actually at the roundabout?

Just going to test my 760.

Doing a 1 mile run down towards a roundabout i get....

At 0.8 miles i get "Continue 0.8 miles and enter roundabout"

At 0.5 miles i get "In 0.5 miles enter roundabout then take second exit."

At 0.2 miles i get "Enter roundabout then take second exit."

All the way down the road the banner says "Take rounabout to 2nd exit"

Is this not what your unit does?

Is it all roundabouts or just one in particular?

Do you have the latest firmware?

What maps are you using?

Hi. No what I get is
follow road for 2.2 miles and enter roundabout.

When I stop at the roundabout then it says take 3rd ext. Thats too late then for me to take the exit.
It does not say in 0.3 mile take the 3rd exit.

I hope that is clear to understan. This is totaly weird

Thanks

How long has this been going on? Is it a new sat nav? Did it work before and suddenly it's changed?

Try changing the voice and see if that fixes it. Then try switching back to the voice you want to use.

It's possible it's got an older firmware and this is a bug. You can try to update the software using WebUpdater

Someone else with a 200 might come along and tell us if they have the same problem, but i've not seen any one else report it.
