    Red face GPS Voices!

    Anyone else use celebrity/fake funny GPS voices? I have a bunch on my GPS. Mr. T, Gary Busey, David Hasselhoff, KITT from Knight Rider, and a few others. You can actually record and upload your own custom-made voices to your GPS with some brands.

    at this moment, been thrown up from below!

    I would love to have Mr. T, but my GPS is built into the car, so I'm not sure if I can do it.

    He mostly just insults and intimidates you while you drive.

    I have a British voice that I named Sylvia and an American voice named Sophia. Both are referred to as "The Bitch". As in, "The Bitch told me how to get here".

    I have C3PO on mine. It's pretty funny.

    I would love C3PO!! I currently chose a man with a British accent. He calls the highway the "motorway"......

    whoever was giving us instructions (it was an Australian accent to boot) on the GPS in France was hilarious. Could not pronounce most names and was spelling them out. Good thing I knew what I was looking for!!

    I didn't know that there were fake celebrity voices! I feel so boring now with my British voice named Reginald that I curse out on a regular basis for nagging me too damned much.

    I've often thought about recording COTHer voices. I'm sure people would love a JSwan GPS voice complete with punchy one-liners.

    LOL, I would be afraid. There are too many here who would go "I don't like you so I won't tell you which way to go!"
