VIDEO: TomTom Adds Star Wars Voice Packs for its Nav Systems

TomTom Star Wars Behind-the-Scenes

Have you ever been driving along, listening to the verbal instructions from your portable navigation system and thought to yourself, “How cool would it be if they replaced the automated lady voice with those of my favorite Star Wars characters?” Well, even if you haven’t, the makers of the TomTom line of GPS navigation systems are making the dreams of those who have thought about it come true.

For $12.95 each, you’ll be able to have Darth Vader, Yoda, C-3PO or Han Solo guide you to your destination. Of course, before these characters’ voices can be piped into your receiver, they need to be recorded. And if the behind-the-scenes video after the jump is to be believed, the process is more complicated and involved than we thought. Don’t believe us? Just watch.

Okay, so the vid is a bit tongue-in-cheek. Make that really tongue-in-cheek. As for the idea of having Lord Vader as your co-driver, the Force is strong with this one.
