Garmin Voice Studio

I’ve been using the TomTom app for iPhone as my GPS. It really does the job and it makes me feel safe especially when I am traveling for my day job. At CES Garmin added a feature to GPS units that I haven’t seen before that allows you to record your own voice for the Nav system. I know you can get celebrity voices on some GPS units already but being a DIY guy when it comes to audio the “Voice Studio” feature looks cool. It’s a novelty I know and I can already imagine being picked up at the airport by a promoter and on the way to an event every time he needs to make a left turn the intro to Nitzer Ebb’s Violent Playground plays (the song starts with Douglas McCarthy screaming “To the Left!”. Listen here: One can dream.

“Basically, it’s a PC-based app that lets you record your own nav instructions (which we’re guessing is going to result in some extraordinarily NC17-rated Nuvis). The company is saying it’ll take about 20 minutes to complete a set of commands.” –
