I have a droid x and have used both navigation and the voice commands. Reading online, I see lots of people make reference to using voice commands to say "Navigate to 123 Main Street" or similar.

My droid x does not have "Navigate to..." as an option for voice commands.

What do I need to do to enable "Navigate to..." as an option for voice commands?

Which version of Android? – Al E. Apr 4 '11 at 19:09
@aleverett Android. 2.2.1 – Alex B Apr 4 '11 at 20:38

Are you using Google Navigation?

Search by voice

Speak your destination instead of typing (English only): "Navigate to the de Young Museum in San Francisco".

I am using Google navigation on my fairly stock droid x. I have voice commands to make calls, play music, but not navigation. – Alex B Apr 4 '11 at 20:40
OK. Do you have the latest Voice Search? – Matthew Read Apr 4 '11 at 20:46
