    Google GPS. Any app for audible turn by turn?

    Love the GPS function; but it kinda sucks looking at a map while driving. Is there any app to add audible turn by turn? Verizon said I have to subscribe to their nav service for 10 bucks a month...but of course, they would say that.

    Google's nav has voice turn by turn, it should ask for you to install that add-on for voice the first time you use it.

    Hmmm...It didn't ask me if I'd like to install the add on. Can anyone tell me how I can install it.

    Thanks Backnblack. However, the "Install voice data" is greyed out on my phone and nothing happens when I press it.

    I believe you shouldn't have to install anything additionally if you have google maps installed already. For turn-by-turn directions just tap the navigation button (upward arrow).

    Here's what I usually go through.
    1. Toggle on GPS (not necessary but will make directions more accurate)
    2. Launch google maps.
    3. Hit the hard menu button (left of home button)
    4. Select Directions (right pointing arrow symbol next to search)
    5. Enter an address in the destination field
    6. Click Go
