If your thing is paying to be verbally upbraided by a celebrity, Navtones has you covered. Novelty of novelties, you can now get celebrity voices for your TomTom satnav. I like the way the celebs will bust your chops if you miss a turn, or give you a verbal dope-slap to pay attention, but it might get old fast. If you've got $12.95 burning a hole in your pocket and a fascination with celebrity culture, Mr. T's dulcet instructional stylings can be yours. You can also choose from Burt Reynolds (no quotes from Smokey And The Bandit), Gary Busey, or Dennis Hopper. Amusing, yes, but we feel it's a grave omission to leave out the best nav voice ever, KITT, aka William Daniels (aka George Feeny from Boy Meets World).

      I, like, TOTALLY want Paris Hilton to do the voice for my satnav directions:

      "Turn left! No right! No... um hangon, lemme look at my hands... which one makes the "L"... turn up! No wait, other finger! Left! No, which way is left? Um... Stop here, lemme work on this. Wanna do a shot of tequila?"

      I pity the fool who missed the turn.

      That message would make more sense if it was in reply to SPG's comment. I'm pretty sure I hit reply...

      That is a glaring omission not to have K.I.T.T.!

      That's what I need to be smack talked from a man who played a character well known for riding in the middle row captain chair in a GMC Van...

      Ummmm this has been around for a long time. I bought my 910 like 3-4 months ago, and got a voice free.

      I have Mr. T, and its not nearly as exciting as I hoped. The phrases are static, and get very annoying after a while. (For example, getting on the interstate he says something like "Take the exit on the right and join the moodaway fool, You'll be madder than Murdock if you expect me to fly and this is the second quickest way to get there.") I would be a lot better if the phrases were randomized.

        Actually, if you look closely they're now offering a standard and funny navigation option to download. So, I guess you can get Mr. T w/ or w/o the extra attitude if that's your thing. I think KITT would be un-fookin-real.

      I pity the fool that doesn't make a right on 4th st, and kids stay on school.

      Gary Busey? No thanks. I don't need my TomTom to go on a long tangent about the meaning of life and totally forget to tell me to make that left hand turn coming up in 800 feet.

      It's like TomTom with ADHD.

        I think Eddie Murphy's 'Donkey' would work - "are we there yet..."

      I don't even need to make a Mr. T comment to say how cool this is.
