    Just wondering if there are any apps on the market that I can get to change the default voice because this womans voice drives me and others mad lol.

    I havnt found anything on the market myself yet but would be grateful if anybody knew of an app that will allow me to change the default text to speech voice to a better voice like a normal sat nav.

    Thanks in advance

    Nope. It's using the TTS engine. You can change the TTS settings but, in my experience, there's little difference. You'd really need an app that actually uses a library of sound clips to "properly" change the voice IMO.

    I've submitted a suggestion on Google's Product Information page. If we get enough votes, maybe Google will do something about it. Here's the link:

    That is not a direct link. There is no way to vote. Please fix.

    I love some people on there suggesting stuff that's already supported natively.
