Using GO Navigation in UK - Why is the app only American?

Hi all
I have TTG installed on my android phone. Previous versions worked fine. After an update I noticed roundabouts had become rotaries. No problem, I can live with that.
However, the most recent version seems to be fully American. Now, I find that Avoid motorways has become avoid Interstate highways.
The problem is, avoid interstate highways includes all A roads too. Obviously America doesn't have A and B category roads. The text to speak doesn't even pronounce A and B. It says ah and beh.
I'm using the UK Serena TTS.
This makes the TTG pretty useless for UK use. I can't be the only person to notice this?
So, I guess there's a UK version??
If so, how/where do I get that?

    Hi @lampard

    I'm not a native English speaker, don't really know the differences.
    So I'm curious what kind of English using by TomTom in my case? And why?
    My phone language set to: English (Germany).

    Hi Lampard,
    Many thanks for taking the time to reply. Your advice was correct, I had the phone language set to English USA. This causes the route options to be set for the USA. I have set my phone to English UK and the options are now correct for the UK. Avoid motorways rather than avoid interstate etc.

    Thanks again

    it's the same on the maps for cars, in UK it's motorway but the system always says Highway
