Android :: Naviguating Using GPS And Voice Through Google Maps

Jun 7, 2010

Google Maps looks like a good alternative to naviguate using my HTC Desire's GPS. The fact is that I would like my route to be explained in some vocal way (better for driving, isn't it?).I already have Speaking Pad from `IDEAL Group, Inc.' installed. This application lets me type some text and let the HTC Desire litteraly `say' (pronounce) it. Thus, I already have the good vocal libraries, and I do not understand why I do not have the speaking ability in my Google Maps.

Android :: Google Maps Voice

May 25, 2010

Is there a different voice synthesiser that can be used for google maps navigation? To start with her mispronunciations and bizarre inflections were a source of amusement but now it is doing everyone's head in. I think I'd rather have Stephen Hawking than this deranged ladybot.

Android : Google Maps And Navigation - Voice Character

Dec 8, 2009

I'm still curious about what potential lies ahead for Maps and Navigation. Will there be more options for the turn-by-turn voice character? The fembot that's there now sounds more synthetic than other GPS I've heard, and the voice sounds distorted with certain words.

Sometime the maps search has been frustrating. I could only remember the street name for one destination. I couldn't remember if it was "road", "street", "ave" etc. I kept trying to type in just the street name and maps would give me like one search result for a city on the other side of the world. Often on the Droid I feel like it could give more search results. It will say "Did you mean?" and list one option - a button for "no" would be nice so it could try a different search.

I still don't understand how to best organize my personal maps, and locations that I frequent (for example, sometimes I'm out in a new area and want to use Nav to get me to a friend's house that I go to often).

I'm trying to wrap my head around this stuff. I want to be able to mark locations easily, make notes/reviews about them and integrate "my maps", "where i've been", "places i've been" and stuff like "foursquare" and "yelp".

This is all new to me, and I'm guessing Google Maps + GPS is pretty new to anyone. Let me know if you have any tips or insight into the implications of all this.

HTC Desire :: Google Maps Navigation Voice

Jul 14, 2010

Is there any way of changing the voice on these, the synthesised voice is AWFUL. Apart from not being able to pronounce English words correctly (E.g. Kew <queue> said as koo - I can't imagine what is must be like if I had to drive down Gloucester or Leicester) it's soooooo grating and harsh on my lugs.I've tried both English and American English settings but both are as bad as each other.Is there a download for new voices or one in the pipeline?I'm shocked this passed Google's quality control!

You get the number from Google voice and obviously you can make calls. Why can't you just cancel your voice and text plan and just keep your data package and use it like that? Will T-Mobile allow that?

Android :: Google Latitude Application For Access Through Google Maps?

Mar 5, 2009

Is Google Latitude available in the UK or not, because it doesn't seem to be working for me? I have received the RC9 update for G1 and have Google Maps 3.0. Is there an a Google Latitude application that I should have or do I access everything through Google Maps? When I go the www.google.com/latitude on my G1, it offers me the option of "launching" Latitude but it just takes me to Google Maps. From there, I cannot see the locations of my Google "friends" (who have agreed to show location), neither does my own location show up on the Latitude homepage on the web (I have settings turned to "detect my location automatically").

A) How do you change that setting?

B) How'd you find that answer?

Sprint HTC Hero :: Google Voice Voice Mails Only Play Through Speaker Phone?

Jul 29, 2010

I finally changed the voicemail system on my Hero from Sprint's "visual voicemail" (which is misleading because it doesn't transcribe voicemails) to Google Voice. It's nice to see my transcribed voicemails now. However, when I actually want to hear them (if the transcription didn't work well), it only comes through the external speaker; the speaker on the back of the phone. I went into Google Voice settings and under "Voicemail Playback" I tried the only two options: "Play via Handset" and "Play via Speaker." Unfortunately, both play through the speaker phone speaker. How do I change it to the phone speaker? I also can't adjust the volume, so the whole world hears my voicemails through the external speaker.

Motorola Droid :: How To Set Google Voice / Version Voice Mail?

I changed the voice mail number from *86 (version default) to my Google voice number. This works when I am not answering the phone and I the caller gets connected to my GV account. But when my phone is not in coverage the caller gets my version voice mail. Appreciate if someone can correct my settings or suggest any app that does it. I am from Windows mobile world and missing those settings when you can define several settings for voice mail (unanswered, rejected, unavailable etc...)

General :: Google Maps App Doesn't Sync Names With Google Bookmarks

Apr 17, 2013

I'm using the latest version of Google Maps on JB 4.2.2 [Nexus 4]..I noticed that I cannot edit the names of my locations in "My Places" in the phone app. So I used Google Bookmarks (google.com/bookmarks) from my PC to edit/rename My Places. However, the names do not sync or carry through to the Google Maps app on the phone. The names in the app are still the generic names, coordinates or street names.

Is there any way to change the names of My Places and get them to sync with the phone app? Really baffling!
