Yesterday I switched the Google Maps voice from English-US to English-UK and today was the first trial with the new UK female voice.   Mind you, I was traveling on a somewhat tried and true route but wanted to see how my new British friend would guide me.   Thanks to Alexa Auto, I listened to the incredible track, One Tree Hill by U2 from not to be overlooked, Joshua Tree recording, when the sultry sexy British AI voice came thru with “turn left on the slip”!  I was smitten from the first nav guidance of “slip”. The UK term, slip vs the U.S. on-ramp. You decide which is preferable. The “slip” term emanating from a sultry sexy female British voice trumps “on-ramp” every day to my anglophile’s ear.   Missing was the identifier name for the acceleration lane nor the freeway we were entering, rather just a crisply curt  Brit quip turn left on the slip.    Loved it! It did not hurt I was hummed up on two cups of coffee, a Brew Doctor Uplift Kombucha replete with Yerba Mate and Guayusa, with the perfect Irish crooner voice in the background.   This impromptu experiment was conducted on a Motorola Android device with an updated version of Google Maps, February 2020.
