    Used the Nav for the first time over the weekend and it worked great, but I was wondering of there are any other voices available?/??

    don't think so since it's still in BETA. you could change it to like "British English" I think, talks slower and maybe easier to understand

    Pretty much anything would be an improvement over the "War Games" voice it has now!

    Give it a while, I'm sure an app will come out. Something like a voicepack for Google Navigation. :)

    It's limited, but yes...

    Tools --> Text-to-speech --> Language.

    Options are VERY limited (American/British English + French, German, Italian and Spanish), but you can select from the list.

    I believe that this changes the DEFAULT text-to-speech - NOT just the nav voice.

    I thought it interesting to note that there is a grayed out option to "Install Voice Data" on that menu. I'm guessing that Google plans to make voice paks available or at least make the option available for developers. Just a guess, but it would make sense.
