Tired of the generic voice inside your GPS system telling you where to turn? Wanderlust Media, the Los Angeles-based maker of the Navtones navigation system, has signed up Mr. T, Burt Reynolds, and Dennis Hopper to tell you exactly where you can go and how to get there. This development was inspired in-part by the signing of John Cleese with the TomTom satellite navigation system, as we reported a while back. Not only do the actors give their voice to the project, they also give some of their personality.
This got me to thinking about what voices I might like to hear in a GPS. The first ones to come to mind were Mr. Burns from The Simpsons and KITT from Knight Rider.
