There is a TA in Coachella California. My GPS pronounces TA "tah". It was a regular fuel stop with SWIFT. The GPS Lady would say, "You have arrived at Taco Chella, fill up." Always made me hungry for Mexican Food!!!

She pronounces Wichita KS as Whah chee tah. My 2nd trainer and I had driven through Kansas several times before I finally figured out it was Wichita. LOL!

And Palmyria is "pal MY rah" she said "Palm meera"

One of my prior codrivers had a Rand McNally that sounded like it was asking "You tall?" When entering or exiting Utah.

I had a delivery on Commerce Center Dr. "In a quarter mile, turn right on Commerce Center Doctor"

Down here in Ecuador, the GPS lady mispronounces every single Spanish word. Most gringos don't mind, they (we) mispronounce them too! It drives my wife nuts... she's 1/2 Chilean, and speaks the Spanish fluently.

Last time I went through there it didn't say it, so maybe it was fixed, but it pronounces Cincinnati "Sin-sin-naughty"

Love's Travel Stop 201 E. Hwy 54, Hwy 54 Exit Hwy 94, Hooker, OK 73945

This was a new location when I first went to it. The new address was not found by my GPS at that time so I just used the city itself to get me to the general area. When I arrived my GPS informed me that I was "arriving at HOOKER on the left".
