Default Wicked 9.1 or just 4.3 issue?

Have been using Wicked 8 for some time, was glad to get 4.3 on my phone with Wicked 9.1.

However, I've noticing a couple things I'm really not a fan of and I'm not sure if it's a WickedROM thing or just an Android 4.3 thing..


1.) The 'Navigation' app seems to have gone away. Now, if I want to access Navigation, I must first launch Maps, then search..then etc etc (was already thoroughly upset with some of the last 'updates' to Maps/Navigation..it really seems to be going in the wrong direction for me..). Am I missing something or is that really what 4.3 brought?

2.) Along with the crappy way to have to launch Navigation, I've noticed the Voice used for the turn-by-turn directions is different. And NOT in a good way. It's terrible. I've checked the Text-to-Speech options and I see that I'm supposed to be able to pick a few different options (the Google engine offers a couple English options, but they sounds TERRIBLE and painfully robotic.) The Samsung engine offers a few other options (including a "High quality" version of English (US And UK)) but most don't sound very good either. So I decided I wanted to go with the HQ English UK voice. I click the button to download the HQ version and nothing happens. I'm not sure if it's downloading or not. Anyhow, regardless of what I end up picking here, it doesn't seem to stick. The navigation (and Google NOW) voice stays the horrible robotic voice. How can I change this!! (Preferably without the need for a 3rd party download) I had no issues with on WickedROM 8.

3.) This one makes me feel a bit silly to ask but. How do I take a screenshot? More specifically, how do I take a screen shot if I've disabled all of the crappy/gimmicky Samsung motion controls?

I'm a fan of the WickedROM series and so far haven't had any issues (aside from the above) with 9.1.. but I am a bit sad to see the boot screen I was using gone (The Sony one) as well as what seems to be much less options for battery icon in taskbar. Oh well.
Thanks for the help!

I have no problem with GPS, and it's not a big deal for me to open maps and do it that way.

To take screenshots is easy, just press the power and home button at the same time for about
5 seconds and the phone takes a screenshot.

Good luck!
Have a great day, enjoy!

Don't forget it takes less time to click the "THANKS" button than to type "thank you".
(unless you type very fast).
