Stop telling me what I already know

If a navigation system knew you were on a route that was familiar to you, couldn't/shouldn't it lower the verbosity (frequency, repetition, volume, etc.) of its voice navigation commands? It's rather annoying that my Dash and Garmin devices both treat me as if every drive I ever make is the first between the source and destination.

I'd love my navigation device to fade into the bckground, so to speak, when I'm driving a routine route, then come forward when I traverse into the new and unfamiliar.
