I've tried settings>language and input>text-to-speech options and changing the voice there, but the GPS voice still is the same. Any ideas?

I downloaded the free app called Ivona text to speech. The voices are free to download while it's in beta so act fast. I changed the tts settings in my phone to Ivona and Google maps is using the voice from it. Much better voice than what Google had in there. Make sure you force stop Google maps or restart your phone to get the changes made.

Baring some unexpected bug.. just change the TTS library, then select a new voice. If Ivona didn't work for you, then try the SVOX TTS library or one of the other TTS packages instead.

SVOX classic TTS

Install the new library, then go to Settings > General > Language and Input > Text-to-speech options and choose SVOX.
