TomTom offers Star Wars character voice to GPSs

TomTom has teamed up with Lucasfilm and VoiceSkins to bring official Star Wars voices to its portable navigation devices. The first available voice will be that of Darth Vader, which has launched on Tuesday and can be downloaded immediately. The voice of C-3PO arrives in June, with Yoda's arriving in July and Han Solo's joining the fray in August.

The creators of this feature have deliberately injected a sense of humor, as evidenced by the video below and a sneak peek at some of the lines Vader says. This includes: "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." Also included are sound effects such as lightsaber clashes and TIE fighter fly-bys. The "Imperial March" is also in some parts of the navigation commentary.

The four Star Wars voices will be available in English with further languages available throughout the summer. Darth Vader's voice costs $13.
