TOMTOM NAVIGATION ADDS OFFICIAL STAR WARS VOICES
For some time, you've been able to hear navigation directions from a series of different characters, and TomTom has just added official Star Wars voices in association with Lucasfilm Ltd to its devices for the very first time.
The options were launched with Sith Lord Darth Vader, while the line-up will continue throughout the summer - with C-3PO arriving in June and Yoda in July. The cast will be complete with Han Solo in August.
Darth Vader's menacing voice and signature breathing add a thrilling dimension to TomTom GPS voice commands. Incorporating dialogue inspired by the original films, Darth Vader delivers navigation instructions such as: "Bear left, to the dark side. Then in 200 yards you have reached your destination. The Force is with you, but you are not a Jedi yet".
The Darth Vader voice also features original sound effects from the classic films, including light saber sounds and TIE fighters. John Williams' unforgettable Imperial March music is also embedded into certain sections of the navigation commentary.
TomTom customers will also be able to download free of charge various official warning alert sounds voiced by Darth Vader, along with free start-up screen wallpaper and Lord Vader map icon.
To celebrate the release of the voices, TomTom is launching a unique Star Wars game where fans can also test their allegiance to the Force, to see if they wish to turn to the dark side.
All Star Wars voices will be available in English with further languages available throughout the summer.
Darth Vader's voice is available to purchase for download immediately. To hear clips of the voices and to find the Star Wars game, visit
