TomTom iPhone Navigation App Updated With Homer Simpson Voice Guidance

By , Apr 27, 2011

I don’t know about you, but I love watching the Simpsons cartoon show! And if you also love watching the Simpsons, you’ll love the new TomTom update.

Yesterday, TomTom announced that it has ported its popular Homer Simpson voice for turn-by-turn directions to its U.S. iPhone GPS Navigation app…

“Developed in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products (FCP), The Gracie Films Worldwide Brand Division and Locutio Voice Technologies, the original Homer Simpson voice (recorded by Dan Castellaneta), for TomTom’s range of personal navigation devices is now available for $5.99 for use on your TomTom App for iPhone in the U.S., marking the first time a celebrity voice has ever been available for mobile phone based GPS.

The original Homer Simpson voice for the TomTom App for iPhone comes with all the latest maps (TomTom version 1.7), which means drivers not only receive Homer’s own special words of wisdom, such as “Woo Hoo! You have reached your destination, and you can hold your head up high, because you are a genius!” but also the latest TomTom map store on board their iPhone.”

While I’ve tried TomTom for the iPhone in the past and still prefer Navigon, this new update makes me definitely considering switching back.

The Homer Simpson Voice guidance add-on is available as a $5.99 in-app purchase.

The TomTom U.S.A Navigation app is available in the App Store for $49.99.

      No no Jason Masters. Simpsons is far greater than Family Guy. Homer > Peter. Family Guy is nothing but a Simpsons ripoff!

      • MrA

      While this feature has been available for standard GPS devices for several years, this is the first time it’s available for the iPhone Navigation app.
