European GPS manufacturer TomTom has been known for allowing their users to customize the voice of their device with famous celebrities, but one might be surprised by how many celebrity voice options are available to users of GPS devices from Garmin, TomTom’s main rival. Here are five downloadable Garmin celebrity voices that will make any drive more enjoyable.
Mr. T – As one of the most popular TomTom voices of all time, it was only a matter of time until Mr. T brought his brand of jibber jabber to Garmin users. Only a fool would consider setting off on a journey without this tough talking co-pilot inside their Garmin.
K.I.T.T. (Knight Rider) – Knight Rider was an international television sensation from the moment it debuted in 1982, and according to a recent survey in the UK, its talking car star, Knight Industries Two Thousand (KITT), is still the most popular TV car of all time. There are many poor impersonations of this GPS voice available on the internet, but there is only one website offering the officially-licensed version of KITT which features the voice of the original TV series’ actor, William Daniels, and addresses drivers by name, so make sure you’re getting the real thing – it’s worth it.
David Hasselhoff – Not to be outdone by his TV co-star, KITT, The Hoff also has his very own GPS voice. After all, one cannot fully embrace their inner 80’s geek without the full Knight Rider package.
Daria (MTV) – Daria Morgendorffer is the star of the hit MTV animated series, Daria, which originally aired from 1997 to 2002. Known for her sharp wit and incessant sarcasm, Daria does indeed have a personality consistent with what might be expected to emanate from a standard GPS voice were it allowed to speak its mind. If dry and sarcastic is your style, this is the navigation voice for you.
Flavor Flav – This hip hop icon turned reality TV superstar has always spoken his mind freely, and the Flavor Flav GPS voice is no exception. This multimedia impresario will leave drivers and passengers breathless as they listen to his colorful and explicit turn-by-turn driving instructions. Yeah boyee.
