While the Knight Rider GPS by Mio lets drivers live out their boyhood fantasies, it may also bring on a slight superiority complex thanks to the refined tones of William Daniels. TomTom users won’t have that problem now that iconic cartoon everyman Homer Simpson is onboard to guide them to the nearest bar or donut shop.
Officially licensed by Twentieth Century Fox the Homer Simpson voice skin is performed by Homer Simpson himself, Dan Castellaneta, and features special words or wisdom to accompany the turn-by-turn instructions. Such gems include, “Take the third right. We might find an ice cream truck! Mmm…ice cream.” We’re just hoping there’s a “D’oh!” in store for when you miss a turn.
Audio samples are available at TomTom, and the Homer Simpson voice skin is available to download for UKP£7.95 or EUR€9.95 in Ireland (approx USD$13 at time of publication). WooHoo!!
