Tom Tom to offer Homer Simpson Voice

Quote:

CONCORD, Mass. (AP) Would you trust directions from Homer Simpson? The makers of the TomTom GPS navigation devices think you might.

They've reached a deal with Twentieth Century Fox allowing the users of the portable systems to download Homer's voice.

Instead of the usual "Turn right" that you might hear from a GPS device, TomTom users can hear Homer add, "We might find an ice cream truck."

All voices officially released by TomTom are custom-recorded by the personalities themselves -in this case, Dan Castellaneta.

They have samples of it in TomTom's website.
