Doh! your own way with a Homer Simpson sat navCartoon buffoon adds voice to TomTom devices
17 June 2009
Drivers have already made it clear they're happy to take directions from the likes of Yoda and John Cleese, so it’s no surprise Homer Simpson has finally made a foray into the world of sat navs.
The cartoon dad – voiced by Dan Castellaneta – is the latest addition to a growing line-up of celebrity ‘skins’ that TomTom users can download and take instructions from.
As well as the obligatory cries of ‘Doh!’ and ‘Woohoo!’, drivers will hear pearls of wisdom such as: ‘Take the third right. We might find an ice cream truck! Mmm…ice cream.'
Homer Simpson TomTom
TomTom sales and marketing manager Damian Woodward said, ‘Celebrity voices are the most popular downloads that we offer our customers to enable them to personalise their driving experience.
‘With Homer Simpson’s voice helping them to navigate during their trip, TomTom users will not only travel safely and with less stress, but they will also be highly entertained along the way.’
The Homer Simpson add-on costs £7.95, and can be downloaded now from the TomTom website.
