50 Celebrity satnav voices we would love to hear

Celebrity satnav voices: It's the ideal way to drown out the hapless map reader in the passenger seat. Here's 50 satnav voices we'd love to hear

As Stephen Fry becomes the latest voice of TomTom, following in the illustrious footsteps of Brian 'Gordon's Alive' Blessed and Darth Vader, it got the T3 team thinking about the iconic voices we'd love to hear on satnavs in the future.

 

After careful consideration and numerous terrible impersonations, here's our pick of the 50 celebrity satnav voices we'd like to see guiding us to our destination in one piece.

 

Have missed any great celebrity satnav voices? Let us know in the comments below.

 

1 - Make a wrong turn? How about Arnold Schwarzenegger saying either "Hasta la vista, baby" or "I'll be back" as a warning that you've just entered dangerous territory and are in threat of being terminated. Or Guvernated, as the case might be.

 

2 - Mike Myers, AKA Austin Powers saying "Yeah, baby, yeah"! when you are going in the right direction, and reprising "Dr. Evil" saying "Why am I surrounded by frikkin' idiots" when you go astray.

 

3 - Perhaps Eric Idle's catchy "Run away! Run away"! from Monty Python and the Holy Grail could be programmed in at the start of your journey. Just be careful you don't collapse into fits of giggles as you pull away!

 

4 - Humphrey Bogart -You're going out on the town with some friends, and they want you to meet them at some cool, new night spot, but you haven't a clue how to get there - until you hear Bogey saying "Of all the gin joints, in all the world..".

 

5 - How about this one - Majel Barrett? You know, the voice from the computer on Star Trek and Star Trek: The Next Generation. (Yeah, she was also a live actor on both programs, but we're talking futuristic technology here, right?) When you get to where you are going, her voice should say "Shuttle has arrived at its destination". If only we could stop ourselves from making light-sabre sounds. Or was that the other star-movie?

 

6 - If you have to have a robot voice, how about the voice of Dick Tufeld, the man behind the robot in Lost In Space screaming "Warning! Warning"! whenever you are approaching a turn too fast?

 

7 - This one is sure to be a hit: Marilyn Monroe, singing "Bye Bye Baby" when you make a wrong turn, or you're going in the wrong direction, following it up with a sigh, and an esasperated "Well, nobody's perfect".

 

8 - Clint Eastwood a la "Dirty Harry" gritting out "Make My Day" as you safely negotiate a proper turn, and "You've got to ask yourself one question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?" when you head off hopelessly off course. Which, in our case, would be rather frequently.

 

9 - James Cromwell, doing a send off from his role in Babe, saying "That'll do pig, that'll do" when you manage to make a high speed lift-off drift turn to stay on track. Alternatively, you've got "That'll do, Donkey, That'll do" as performed by Mike Myers in Shrek.

 

10 - Tom Cruise - "I feel the need! The need for speed"! from Top Gun
