    Is there any way I can get a nice man with a rich voice to live inside my maps and guide me? Her voice is driving me (get it) mad.

    It's text-to-speech synthesis. Even if you changed it to a male voice it would have the same issues.

    That same text-to-speech "woman" tells me who is calling on my land line phone. How she manages to answer the phone at home while she's out with me is a mystery. :)

    I kinda like the default voice, doesn't bother me yet. But I can see where choice would be nice, and it'll likely happen at some point down the road. Android is just getting started...

    Agree, she's got to go. Plus she cannot properly pronounce Hawaiian place/street names.
