    My S4 came with a nice, sultry, realistic sounding voice that was easy on the ears when driving. The voice has since changed to a more crude computer-sounding female voice like some primitive 80s voice synthesis technology. What happened? Was that due to a Google Maps update, a Samsung update, or did I mess up the settings somehow? Can I get back the original guidance voice that came with my S4?
