: How's the voice-over on touchscreen nav units? ('03)

I'm selling my Deville DTS and going with a used '03 escalade. It does not have nav, but I'll be installing one shortly after I receive the truck. One thing that bugged me in my Deville Nav unit was her voice.
I found it irritating, particularily "I"'s, "9"'s, and "5"'s The voiceover in my Pioneer Nav system in my other vehicle is much, much more pleasant.
Anyway, before I plunk down the cash for the nice, clean factory look, I wanted to be sure the voice wasn't going to be the same migraine inducing woman.
On another note- anyone check out Navtones? Celebrity voices for navigation units... Is anyting like this available for the Escalade?
