I've been running reverse geocoding for announcing county and state for some time now and always found it to lag quite a bit behind after crossing a border. I figured this was just the nature of the beast. Now that I've started running profile overrides however, I've noticed that those announcements are right on the money. So my profile override anounces and is enacted as soon as I cross a border and the GPS updates..................then............some time later..............................................I get the geocode announcement. :razz: Is there a way to use the same source used by the overrides for the geocodde announcements?

Profile overrides depend only on GPS, which is updated at 1-sec intervals. Reverse geocoding pings your location info only as often as your setting, and it can't do a 1-sec interval (would use too much data and probably get you blocked).

That makes sense. I figured it was something like that or you'd have already fixed it, but it was worth a shot. The most important is that the override is correct anyway.
