I can't tell if I've hit a setting or not, but my Google Maps directions now alternates between ( original and the best) Female voice guidance and Male voice guidance (Sharp and clear but a bit Uni-lecturer). Very confusing and scared the hell out of me first few times scared
Any body else using Google maps noticed a change?

I have a theory that the majority of male drivers prefer the female voice and have asked many to prove it.
Be honest chaps male or female?


Reason
We are used to being told what to do by women

Probably gone deaf Phil!! grin2

I'd like Joanna Lumley on my Garmin.
(I'll rephrase that - I'd like her voice on my Garmin. I know it is, or was, available on TomTom).

On my Garmin I had Captain Mainwaring but I could only stand so much of "you stupid boy". He had to go. When sailing I prefered a female voice from the Coastguard, the higher pitch I find easier to hear over the noise of the wind and/or engine.
I've never heard it called a Garmin Graham, is that Army slang?

I rely on the screen. Can't hear the voice from my Tom Tom at anything over 65mph
