    So I was using voice guided navigation today and about half way through my trip I noticed the voice changed. Instead of it being robotic it was more human feminine sounding. Also it didn't say street names and would just say "Turn Left" or "Turn Right" instead of like "Turn right at center street".

    This has never happened to me and I haven't heard of this happening before. Any idea why?

    Same thing happened to me!

    I just registered to let you know that the same thing happened to me last week also, possibly at the same time. I haven't seen this reported anywhere else, and the voice on my phone has since returned to the original.

    My theory is that Google was running a live test at the time we were using our GPS's and we were among the few that actually heard it.

    I know this is a fairly old thread, but I had the same thing happen to me 2 days ago while using Nav. The voice was waaaay better than the usual female robotic voice.
