Using Your Own Voice for Navigation in Ovi Maps
      05/04/10 02:18 PM

If you ever wished to hear turn-by-turn directions in your own voice Nokia has a new app for that. Own Voice app from Nokia lets you record and share your own navigation instructions for Ovi Maps. Here is more info on this cool Nokia app:

Now that navigation is free in Ovi Maps you can create your own drive guidance instructions and share them with friends and family. Cheer up your loved ones' dull morning commute or do your best pirate voice for a friend ? Own Voice for Ovi Maps lets you say it your way! Own Voice for Ovi Maps requires the latest version of Ovi Maps installed on your device.

How long will it take you to record all the voice instructions you hear from your Ovi Maps directions? 53 commands! Just find a quiet place and let the app walk you through each of the 53 required commands such as "turn left in 200 meters" and "You have reached your destination". When you are done recording, just hit save and the voice pack is uploaded to the Own Voice website.

The app lets you browse new voice packs by popularity and by recommendation (though you can also browse all voice packs). Want to share your creations with friends or the entire world? Easy! Own Voice has the ability to share voice packs by Facebook and Twitter and if you find one you really like (or hate) then you can rate it.

Own Voice for Ovi Maps is available only in English and is compatible with all Nokia devices which support the new version of Ovi Maps (3.03). You can get the Own Voice app today as a free download from the Ovi Store here:
