Gary Busey Voice

 

Several years ago there was some discussion on the POI Factory forum about celebrity voices for the GPS and Gary Busey's name was mentioned. Well, for better or worse it's happened.

Wire service story:

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Actor Gary Busey wants to guide you down your spiritual path -- using GPS. The Academy Award-nominated actor, Hollywood eccentric and current `Celebrity Apprentice'' contestant has teamed up with NavTones.com, an independent developer of celebrity GPS voice systems, to provide his spiritual as well as directional guidance to GPS users.

In addition to turn-by-turn driving directions, his voice will provide spiritual guidance along all routes, or ``journeys," as Busey calls them. When drivers set up their GPS routes, Busey's voice will add randomized
tidbits of sage advice such as, ``do not pet the lions or the gorillas," or `be in the silence and let the journey be in the noise." Continuing along the route, one might hear such other pearls of wisdom as, ``don't look into the rear-view mirror to clean your teeth, or you could rear-end a log truck in Oregon and remove your teeth forever."

NavTones' GPS voices download instantly to most Garmin nuvi portable GPS devices.

I was going to guess that this would be Mr. Sheen's next publicity move.

I'll Pass...

I have dealt with enough personality challenged people in my life. But to be stuck in a car, on a trip with one?

I'll pass on this one.

If you ain't got pictures, I wasn't there.

.

If you are not familiar with celebrity voice files keep in mind that these type of files do NOT speak street names. So if you install a celebrity voice file your gps will only say "turn left","turn right", etc.

Just reading

about this gives me gas, I think I'll pass.

I'll pass, My 855 is weird enough already.

I just paired my cell phone with my new Equinox today, I wish I could get that lady's voice for my GPS.

Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

nice

nice

Is Doctor House available yet ?

I'd love to hear him with a sharp variation of "Recalculating"...

And of course if this could eventually get available in French ? Tomotom does those already - though I'd question their taste of Celebs !

Now...

that's a scary thought since he can't really even navigate his own life!

Want a voice

How do I get a voice that says "Winning" everytime I make a move that is the opposite of the GPS instructions and defies logic?

Voice Confusion

With either celebrity voice there will probably be lots of nutty comments with the travel voice. In some instances it may be hard to understand.

I think it would be funny to

I think it would be funny to have that on your phone but really not something I would actually pay for.

I can see what you mean

Like the guy who was saying "I'm no longer going to be the person you expect me to be"... Say WHAT ? Which exit ?

Or replace "Recalculating" with Charlie Sheen saying:
"Duh, Winning!".

+1 on Inspirational Thoughts

If he were free, I'd definitely use his voice for the random road-trip with friends, but mostly just for his insights on life.

"My dark side, my shadow, my lower companion is now in the back room blowing up balloons for kids’ parties."

We all need some sort of revelation while driving to 7-11 in Tulsa, OK.

It's just sad

Busey clearly has a mental problem and is not all there. I guess it is a train wreck and some can't help but to stare

No, thanks.

Not worth the $7.

Meh

I'd try it for free, not for $.

Very interesting!!

Don't really have a use for Gary Busey's voice on my GPS. That would drive me crazy.

BYE BYE BUSEY

Can we commission Donald Trump to record, "Gary Busey, you're fired!"?

use tts voice editor

Use TTS Voice Editor to change the word "recalculating" to "winning". When I run afoul of the planned path, Karen says "selecting alternate route".

Major Brain Surgery

After leaving his helmet home and crashing his motorcycle back in 1988, Busey suffered a traumatic head injury. Can you imagine that in the middle of guiding you, he suddenly forgets where he is?

French celebrities. You'd end up with Jerry Lewis.....
