    I have tried Nokia Drive, Nokia Maps, Bing Maps and Google Maps and Nokia Drive is the only one that I can get the verbal voice command to work. Nokia Drive works fine but I like the female voice that works on Google Maps on an Android phone that I also own. I can access Google Maps and it will map out driving directions but it will not give out verbal voice commands on my Nokia 822 Windows 8 phone. Any ideas as to how I can get this to work or an alternate solution?

    I know on the WP 7.5 version of Nokia Drive, I had it set to use the UK Female voice. It worked very well, though it called traffic circles "roundabouts" and highways "motorways" but I found that kind of charming actually. I'm not sure if this is available on the new version of Drive yet, but if not I'm sure it soon will be.
