GPS with voice recog

Is there any GPS for the diamond that has voice recognition and if you tell it, it will automatically input your destination?

Re: GPS with voice recog

At this time, there is no GPS voice guidance "turn by turn" software that will allow us WM/Diamond users to input an address with voice recognition. Nonetheless, I'm sure you're aware that Android has Google Maps Navigation beta, and it does allow for voice input. That said, there are a couple of caveats with Gmaps Navigation beta. It's not a stand alone GPS app for voice input, as it needs a data connection with Google in order to search for the location. Plus, if you miss a turn and go off route, a data connection is needed to correct your course. On the bright side, it appears that Google will release it's voice input nav software for the iPhone at some point in the future. In turn, it should hopefully make it's way to WP7 as well. On the not so bright side, it may never be ported to WM6.x.., due to upcoming release of WP7. Guess we can hope though, and maybe Bing will step up and add it to it's feature set at some point.

Best to all,
R

I use the BingWM6 version which is the last version before the newest update and it has what you ask for. You can click on Directions or Maps and click the left softkey and Speak the name of your location and/or your destination into your device and it will usually find it. I'm actually surprised how well it works.
It does not dictate spoken directions to you but does track you with gps and will give you audible tones and alerts when you are close to your turn and when you reach your turn.
Works great and it's free.

Re: GPS with voice recog

Thanks horndoctor for the heads up on bing. It now has been updated to include turn by turn voice. Plus, from a quick test, the voice input appears to have been improved as well.

bing mobile updated now with turn by turn directions

Cheers,
R
