    I used Google turn by turn navigation yesterday (first time for a while), and the voice was giving the road names as full numbers rather than the digits. (e.g. the "A" four thousand and fifty five, rather than the "A" four O five five), I know it used to do this when the app came out, but I thought they had fixed it.

    Does anyone know why its reverted to saying the full number rather than digits ?

    I noticed this recently too. The voice was also considerably slower than it used to be and I had to increase the speed in settings. No idea why. I had just assumed it was part of the froyo update.

    I'd love a way to change it back. To me, the new American accent is SO strong, it's difficult to understand.

    With most half decent Sat Nav's you can change the voice. I'm surprised that this isn't a feature on Google Navigation. Especialy given how Google now utilise voice features so much.
