Other features / Re: Voice NAVIGATION

(note: eg refers to a roundabout like this)
i'd like to suggest a rewording of instructions at a roundabout. attached are egs from Locus and one other nav app. there are 2 differences i can hear...
1. when approaching the roundabout, the road bends slightly left to ease entry into the circle. for that bend Locus says "bear left", but the other app doesnt bother with the bend. imo "bear left" is unnecessary.  
2. within the roundabout, Locus mentions the distance to the exit. i think the instruction should just be the exit number.

so something like this, "in X metres, enter the roundabout, and take the 2nd exit" is clear and concise. once in the roundabout just say "take the 2nd exit".
especially in smaller roundabouts, instructions need to be as short as possible.

When exporting tracks, currently Locus exports to the SD card. If there was an added option to export/upload to your OSM account, that would be very handy for mappers.
Wishlist / Navigate To options

When selecting "Navigate To", it would be useful to have access to...
- "recent destination" (history)
- "POI" which will search some of the main tags in OSM like Amenity, Leisure etc ( )
- re-order the existing list to have "contact" and "favorites" higher on the list
