Star Wars voices for TomTom GPS Navigators
May 7, 2010 11:38 AM
Available for $12.95, the authentic-sounding voice provides guidance as only a Sith Lord can, complete with references to the Dark Side. To complete the navigator upgrade, there are free Star Wars downloads with start-up screens, sound effects, and car icons.
The next character coming is C-3PO, with Yoda expected to follow in July and Han Solo in August. No word on offering Chewbacca. We imagine that the Yoda voice could be a challenge to interpret, given the big-eared Jedi's tendency to transpose words.
To use these voices, the device must be using TomTom software version 5.0 or higher. You can check the version on the device itself (location varies, check manual), or when using the TomTom Home software on your computer.
Should the battle between dark and light be a bit intense for you, TomTom also offers Homer Simpson among its character choices.
