    Make sure mute is not on and your volume is turned up.

    Just used voice navigation it worked like a charm. I even Deviated from the Suggested route and the redirect was very very quick.

    It's not so accurate either.

    Put some locations I know and it would go the wrong way, longer scenic route (both ways were major roads) and on a straight highway drive said to go west then south and back up north to go back on course.

    I'm not the biggest fan of OS 6 Maps. It looks awesome in large cities but in neighborhoods it seems flat in 3D, and not very clear. I do miss the street view of Google. Fortunately Google will introduce their own Maps app which I look forward to. I do really like the turn by turn navigation using the OS 6 Maps.

    I too like the new maps in that the turn by turn feature is great but i do miss google map street view because for me it is invaluable as I drive trucks in the tv and film facility game and for me being able to look at a location to see if my truck can get into it is a great feature for me so i will be adding good maps app when it becomes available which i hope is very soon.

    you can go to your bowser type in google maps, click on the link and then add a google maps icon to your screen. although i find the mapquest app for voice directions great.

    It was my understanding that with the ios6 update the the map app would have voice navigation. I cannot find any settings option to turn on voice or change any settings. Would someone please help me with this?

    What model phone do you have? I know for sure it's not included in iOS 6 for the iPhone 4 but I believe it is on the 4S and 5.

    You're correct, it's only available on the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5 - same with Flyover (well the iPad 3 gets that too).

    I have the iPhone 4. It removed the Google map and installed the Apple map. I still can't get voice navigation? When I'm eligible of an upgrade in January I'm getting the iPhone 5!
