Anyone else having Samsung TTS/Navigation problems?

    I switched the text-to-speech voice on my S2 to the Samsung TTS engine because the voice sounded more pleasant, and when I went into Navigation I was getting some mighty strange directions.

    It was as if the voice engine was reading some of the programming. I'd hear stuff like:

    "xml equals version one point zero. xml voice equals zero. w-w-w..." and it would continue for a minute before it ended with "in one quarter mile, turn left."

    The Pico TTS engine seemed fine, though.

    Anyone else notice that?

    How'd you get the svox to work on google nav? I have svox installed, android language set to English (United States) and have US Grace voice installed. All legit and paid for. SVOX Voice works with all other TTS apps, but navigation defaults to non-SVOX voice. Just tells me to turn when approaching the turn, and doesn't read street names like on my Atrix 4G (now have SGS2 Skyrocket).

    This is so strange...any help would be most appreciated....
