    Just wondering, is it possible to get/create an app that:
    1) lets you change the voice of the Google navigator?
    2) lets you replace the stock status bar icons(battery, headphones)?

    ....both w/out rooting.

    Thanks!!

    Depends.

    What voice are you looking for google navigator? Darth Vader?

    When you take a wrong turn:

    "I find your lack of faith disturbing."
    &
    "Don't fail me again, Admiral."

    Whereas I love the Star Wars jokes, I would love a different nav voice as well. My kids make fun of it!

    Havn't made fun of it yet, however, I do miss what it says at times. If it's something quick I totally miss it. Also have not figured out how to get it to repeat what it last said.
