Voice directions in Mango GPS Navigation disappears from some international markets

imageIn an odd move it seems Voice-guided GPS Navigation in Windows Phone 7 Mango, already crippled by having to touch the screen to get voice prompts, have now disappeared completely in locations like France and even Australia.

So far Microsoft has not volunteered a reason, but the move is counter to what we expected – that the service will improve when Microsoft’s deal with Nokia was completed, not get worse.

Voice prompts still works fine in UK and USA, but as Professeur Thibault discovered not so well in France.

Do our readers in other countries who loaded the latest Windows Phone 7 Mango beta have the same problem? Let us know below.
