The route less traveled, to take? That may not sound like something
your existing GPS
voice would say, but it's certainly something Yoda
would say. Having unusual voice characters speak to you through your
GPS system isn't entirely new, but TomTom's latest is probably the
nerdiest yet. Star Wars characters guiding you around from point to
point, in their own unique voice signatures? It's a George Lucas fan's
dream come true, and considering that we're nowhere near April 1st,
this is definitely the real deal.
users in Europe can already download a number of voice packs,
with Darth Vadar, C-3PO, Yoda and Han Solo up for grabs right now. We
have to admit that a few of those are probably hard to actually
decipher, but you can't argue that these would be fun to listen to.
Until you got really lost, and then became frustrated by these guys not
taking your plight seriously. Nothing like hearing Yoda yell
"recalculating" at you 18 times as you're trying to find that random
cleaning service in the middle of the city.
The voice packs are available now for for just under 10 Euros, but
there's no mention of when or if they'll make an official debut in the
