    It seems as though ever since the ots update my google voice navigation hasn't been working properly. The speech is way too fast to even nderstand. Help?

    That was my first thought, but I didn't see anything when I looked initially. I'll take another look.

    Ok, I just fixed my own issue. To anyone in the future that has this problem - with google nav NOT RUNNING go to the app store and re-download SpeechSynthesis Data Installer. I think my problem arose from uninstalling voice caller ID. It seems to have broken the text to speech drivers, and I imagine this could happen when uninstalling other apps that use voice synthesis. Cheers.

    I was gonna say to check the market for SpeechSynthesis, I know with my friends G1 he had to re install it a few times when putting Google Nav on.
