Remember before smartphones when you had to print out directions to your destination for reference while driving? Luckily we have helpful tools like Siri to help us navigate the greater Saskatoon area. Well, we’ll use the word “helpful” lightly.

If you ask Siri for directions to Saskatoon’s Aka Sushi House, you’ll be greeted with the following: “Starting route to Also Known As Sushi House …”

She’s not always the smartest navigator, but she can get you there.

There are quite a few place throughout the greater Saskatoon area that Siri has a difficult time pronouncing. From streets, restaurants and cities, click the gallery above to see the places in the Saskatoon area that Siri doesn’t say correctly.

Know of any we missed? Let us know and we’ll include it in the story.
