    So I did a search but didn't find anything on this, but is there a way to get a different voice that speaks the directions in the navigation app? The robotic one that talks now just doesn't do it for me.

    Thanks in advance.

    LOL. My kids even complain about the voice! I haven't found any way to change the voice.

    Yeah...it's a pretty lame electronic voice. Google needs to hire someone like Donna Dixon to directional recordings. I think they've got enough money to make it happen.

    agreed. I would love to change the voice to something else. A female's british voice would be preferred...

    BMW used to have that. If you missed a turn it would ORDER you to make a U turn.

    It's a text-to-speech application, not a pre-recorded voice. That's why is sounds like Mrs. Stephen Hawking. You can't change it.
