Watch Darth Vader record spoken directions for TomTom GPS units

One of the more entertaining features of TomTom GPS units is their ability to be outfitted with different voices for spoken directions. Instead of listening to “Jill – US Female Voice”, you can be bossed around by Dora The Explorer, SpongeBob SquarePants and Homer Simpson.

The newest celebrities to join the lineup of available voices are from Star Wars. $12.95 gets you Darth Vader or C3PO – and in the hilarious video clip above, you’ll see “Darth Vader” in the recording studio. I’ve had a few of these voices on my own GPS unit, and while they are mildly entertaining for a couple of trips, the novelty wears off very quickly. Still, it is a fun way to make your boring GPS unit a little less dull.
