Surface Pro 7 deal! Save big at Amazon right now

    So.. this came as a big discovery to me. Such a surprise to me, that I (A lurker in here) signed up just to post it here!

    So a feature that I sorely missed in Nokia Drive was text to speech.. i.e. Say street names instead of just "Now Turn Right"
    Aparently Nokia has added this feature... go to the Navigation Voice option in Nokia Drive's setings and selct (download) one of the the Voices that says "Announce Street names"

    If everyone else knew and I am just making a fool of myself by posting that everyone already knew.... please just let me continue with my ignorance and enjoy this moment!

    Edit: Looks like many of you already knew about this. :( Shame on you for not telling me earlier! :)

    Nokia had it since the beginning, AFAIK.

    I havent upgraded the firmware nor the Drive App (update that came out today). I am just happy that it is finally here! (Or was always here!)

    This was always there, at least since it went live for non Nokia users.

    I've had this for as long as I have had my Lumia 920 (bought it release day). So this has always been there for Nokia phones.

    Never hurts to repost the instructions on how to get to it though.
