The voice guidance on my 2010 - even at the loudest setting (7 on a scale of
1 - 7) is still barely audible over the radio at moderate volume.  Does
anyone know of a user-accessible tweak that can improve this situation?

I don't know of any tweak, but it is not a problem common to all
2010's.  I just sold my 2004 Prius and replaced it with a 2010.  The
nav volume is roughly the same.   ...Pat

The voice volume setting can be found on page 16 of the 2010 Prius
Navigation System Quick Reference Guide.  There is says "Press SETUP Panel
Button, then VOICE, then select VOICE VOLUME 1 through 7"

Yep - done that (see above).  Setting 7 made it louder, but still not loud
enough to hear over a moderately set radio volume level.

I haven't noticed that on my 2010 yet but I dislike the multiple voices.
For example, one female voice says "In half a mile turn left on" and
another, distinctly different female voice at a lower volume says "US
Highway 10."  The first voice speaks slowly and distinctly, the second voice
speaks quickly, running the words together.  There was a single voice at a
constant volume on my 2005.
