TomTom goes galactic with C3PO voice nav

11 Jun 2010

If heavy breathing and threatening tones make you feel uncomfortable then maybe you should skip the Darth Vader option and go straight for the chirpier manner of protocol droid C3PO whose voice is available to download for TomTom devices from today.

“R2-D2, you know better than to trust a strange computer!”

TomTom has joined forces (no, not that force) with Lucasfilm and to bring a range of Star Wars characters to your sat nav experience. Who wants the default voice when you can pretend you are driving to a galaxy far far away?

With Darth Vader already available as a download followed by the overly perky timbre C3PO you can look forward to wise cracks from the ultimate anti-hero Han Solo later on this summer.

“Look, Your Worshipfulness, let’s get one thing straight. I take orders from just one person: me.” Oh, and us now Han, seeing as we’ll be plugging in directions on our TomToms and getting you to follow them.

Do you want C3PO on your TomTom right now? Well, look no further. has three downloadable codes for C3PO on TomTom sat nav devices to give away. Just head to the competition page and answer a simple question to place yourself in the draw.
