    If you're tired of the horrible Samsung voice on maps (even the HD version is horrible) and the not so terrible but still bad Ivona voices and long for the days of Google voices in maps, well now your wishes have been answered. Google has extracted Text To Speech (TTS) from the Android OS and made it a separate download. Just download the official Google TTS here (link) and set it as your default TTS engine in settings.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, that's the link in the text that you quoted. It leads you to the Play Store page for Google TTS.

    Oh, I found it and downloaded it. Not great though. I fear hidden location links which is why I asked. I once clicked a link that downloaded a virus.

    Is there any way to install a male voice?
