I don't, I switched my voice to a very nice gentleman, from the bossy lady.
However, my Bro-in-law calls his: B***h Betty.

I usually tell young men, if you can't get along with your GPS, don't consider marriage.

I actually have the "voice" turned off in my GPS most of the time. Now if there was a way to turn off the other voice in the vehicle......

My Magellan in the truck is "Maggie."

The GPS in my Genesis sedan is "Gennie."

Hi, I had to turn down Georgette's volumn, she was getting too demanding at times. I have no control over my Nagi-gator for reasons that I need not explain.

We called ours "Jill" after the voice selection in the Garmin. Until we got an update she would pronounce "Heritage Highway" Heritid Highway. We gave her away to the daughter in favor of our iPhone.

Yup, we too dumped the Garmin and now use our IPhone5 exclusively.

At least you don't need to recharge it!

But I've found, as a solo traveler, that trying to drive and read a map is dangerous; I prefer a GPS that talks to me, so I can keep my eyes on the road.
