In association with LucasFilm? and VoiceSkins.com, TomTom navigation customers can be guided by the greatest Jedi Master of them all: Yoda.
Joining Darth Vader and C-3PO, Yoda is the latest official Star Wars voice to launch exclusively for TomTom devices. Han Solo will complete the line-up of favorites in August.
"Star Wars fans are sure to be delighted when they hear just how great these voices sound on their TomTom navigation devices," says Casey Collins, sr. director of international licensing and marketing at Lucas Licensing. A powerful Jedi warrior Yoda may be. But his quirky diction and mischievous personality also make him one of the most charming characters in the Star Wars universe - and one who adds a galaxy of fun to TomTom GPS voice commands. Incorporating dialogue inspired by the original Star Wars films, Yoda's navigation instructions include "After 700 yards hmm, keep to the right then take a sharp left. Control, control, if a Jedi you wish to be." The Yoda voice also comes with ghostly encouragement from Obi-Wan Ben Kenobi, taken from the original films and embedded into the navigation commentary.
John Williams' touching 'Yoda's Theme' music is also interwoven with certain commands, providing a richness and cinematic experience rarely heard on navigation systems.
In addition to Yoda's voice, TomTom has launched a range of official Yoda wallpapers and alert sounds voiced by the Jedi Master. TomTom customers can download these items for free to ensure their TomTom device is enlisted in the service of the Jedi.
All official Star Wars voices for TomTom devices are available in English, while Yoda and Darth Vader are also now available in German. Further languages will be available throughout the summer.
