    I have hearing problems. Is there any way to switch to a man’s voice in Navigation? Many automobiles offer this option but I have not found it for Model S.

    Given that the Nav system makes some strange route choices, selective deafness is probably an advantage.

    Just curious, what characteristics about a male voice allows you to hear it better?

    I'm guessing the pitch.

    This sounds like the sort of thing worth tweeting at Elon.

    Male voices seem more sharp and clear. Perhaps it is pitch. Same issue with audio books.
