    How do i Change Google maps voice?
    Choose another language
    Switch to another voice

    You may be able to switch to a better sounding voice from your phone's text-to-speech settings.

    Go to your phone’s settings app.
    Go to Language and input. It may be in the “My device” menu.
    Touch Text-to-speech options.
    Under “Preferred TTS engine,” select another text-to-speech option.
    Voice navigation will use the voice you selected. This will change the voice in other apps too.

    Note: These instructions are for Android devices.

    Google is ok I've been using Nokia's Here Drive not as refined as the windows version but still better imo. This acts like a real GPS and does not need a data connection, you dl maps to your phone. Either whole country's or state by state I use USA map to SD.

    If you want to change the language (or accent), it's a little convoluted:

    1. First, go to Settings>Language & Input>Languages, and select the one you want. Make sure it's listed as Default (or move it to the top of the list).
    2. Next, go to Settings>Language & Input>Text-To-Speech Output, and tap the gear icon next to Google Text-To-Speech Engine, then Language, and select that language.
    3. Go back one menu level, and tap Install Voice Data. Make sure the language data is installed.

    Google Maps should now be speaking to you in that language/accent.
