Navigation Voice in UK English

My Locus Pro speaks in American. I'd like to change it to UK English but can't find it listed in Locus languages. Is there a way to lose this? Thanks

Hi Jon,

"speaking" of Locus Map is provided by TTS engine installed in your phone. Go to Locus settings > Languages&units > Text to speech > select UK English. If UK English is not available in your TTS Engine, please install and activate another one.

Thanks but I had already tried this. My phone has TTS English installed and speaks in UK English if you go to Default Language Status in the settings. However, in Locus it speaks with a different voice using US accent. I cannot find any US voice pack installed on my phone in the settings menus. It is a Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

Any thoughts?

Hi Jon,

the issue has been analysed and forwarded to the main Locus developer. Unfortunately, its implementation is said to be quite complicated so I'm afraid I can't give you exact deadline when it is done.

OK thank you. I'd rather hoped it was as easy as installing another language pack.

Hi Jon,

I've got good news - UK English in TTS will be available in the August version of Locus Map.
