Try pronouncing any non English address so that this crappy system would understand ;) And even some streets are pronounced almost exactly the same, but spelled differently and it fails miserably

Karmalakas do have to to speak english to it? I thought if the car was sold in a non english speaking country then the lauguage it would need would be the lauguage of the country. Does the display text come up in english?..

Just checked the manuals and it says you can choose both menus and voice recognition in 20 languages, but Lithuanian isn't one of them :) Why would it be? Google doesn't even have Lithuanian voice recognition :) Even in English it understands maybe 1 of 5 times what I try to say with an accent and I wouldn't say my accent is so terrible
