    Hello,

    I've been using a Tom Tom for several years now and have thoroughly enjoyed it. One complaint I have with it is that it was always reminding me to do something. For example, I am on the freeway and my next exit isnt for a long time, say 20 miles, but every interchange it keeps reminding me to keep left.

    The google navigation on the droid doesnt do this and I am very happy with that! But, the voice is this robotic voice that is annoying. The reason for this post is to ask, is there a way to chance the voice like on a Tom Tom, or an app that will do what I am looking for?

    I've been wondering the same thing. The creepy robotic woman's voice is annoying.

    You can change the voice to the British accent. I loved it.. then after a a few weeks I had to change it back to creepy robo voice.

    control panel - text to speech settings - british american


    How about a southern accent?

    From the Google Support Forum:

    "At this time, the voice used in Google Maps Navigation cannot be modified - though there are multiple threads with a similar feature request right here in this Forum. I can't reveal details about future product changes, but please be assured the team's aware of the desire to choose different voices."

    can i replace the navigation voice on my verizon droid? - Google Mobile Help

    Hang a left at the old Murphy place*, go 'long bout a half mile**, look fer the big oak tree***, be right there on yer right. Cain't miss it.****

    *"The old Murphy place" hasn't been owned by a Murphy for 50 years, and has no identifying marks anyway

    **more like two and a half miles

    *** which looks just like all the other big oak trees in the county

    **** if you hear the words "can't miss it" you may as well turn around and go home; you have no chance of reaching your destination successfully.
