Nokia has released a new feature pack for Ovi Maps that lets you record your own voice for turn-by-turn directions. With Own Voice, your phone will basically record you dictating a number of directions ("Turn right in a quarter mile"), then construct a customized Voice Pack for your Ovi Maps navigation. The app will then upload your voice pack to the Own Voice Web Site, where you can also browse other users' Own Voice packs and pick from the most popular uploads. You can even share your voice packs over Facebook and Twitter. The Own Voice app is only available for English speakers. It is available today as a free download from the Nokia Ovi store for all users with the newest version of Ovi Maps, version 3.03.
