The Ride with GPS mobile app for Android utilizes your device’s text-to-speech engine to read back turn-by-turn navigation cues. Should your android phone not always play back these cues you may need to change the text-to-speech engine to Google’s text-to-speech engine. The color and look of the settings may vary between Android devices, but the setting itself is the same between models.
- Go to the SETTINGS of your phone. It’ll look like a gear icon.
- Go to System OR Languages and Input
- Go to Advanced
- Go to Text-To-Speech Output
- Under “Preferred Engine” Choose GOOGLE TEXT-TO-SPEECH.
Now that you have switched to the Google Text-to-Speech engine, feel free to tweak the voice settings to your desire. These settings will affect how the turn-by-turn navigation cues will be read back to you so use at your discretion.
