With WP 7.5 on Nokia Lumia 920 I had voice directions that said things like "You've gone a different way." Now I'm on 8.0 and I don't have those any more. Maybe something else turned them off. How do I turn them back on?

  • What app are you referring to?

    I don't know what app provided the voice. I thought it was a part of the Microsoft app that provided directions. Jan 9 '14 at 15:00

    I don't think Microsoft ever provied a navigation app. Another odd point about your post is that the Lumia 920 was never shipped with WP 7.5.

  • Aah, that helps my confusion. I previously had an LG Windows Phone, do you know if that had something like what I've described? Jan 9 '14 at 17:56

I don't know which navigation app you used in your LG WP 7.5 phone, but you can have voice guidance with your Lumia 920 by using Here Drive.

In Here Drive, select Settings > Navigation voice, and choose the voice you want to use. If needed, press the "Download New" button to get other voices.

  • Of course, in your LG WP 7.5, you had another navigation app (I can't figure out which one). But I think you can have an equivalent with Here Drive in your new Lumia 920. I slightly updated my answer. Jan 9 '14 at 23:08
