Finding your way by car can sometimes feel like a galactic struggle. And with a TomTom automobile GPS unit it can also sound galactic.

Users of these popular portable navigators can now have the voice of a Star War character guide them to their destination.

gps  Take Your Third Left. <br>May the Force Be With You.The first voice launched: Darth Vader. In his trademark baritone breathy tones the Dark Side Jedi informs you both about where to turn and who your father is. Depart from your given route and expect Lord Vader to be most displeased. (Check out the video below for a few voice samples).

Drivers who prefer the Light Side of the Force will have three voices to choose from. TomTom is launching the C-3P0 voice in June 2010, followed by Yoda in July and Han Solo in August. No word yet on when the Chewbacca GPS voice guidance will be available.

The Star Wars GPS voices can be downloaded from the TomTom website for US$12.95 each. To use them you’ll need a TomTom GPS until. Although, sometimes you just have to turn off your navigational computer, stay on target and let the Force guide you.

If you buy a TomTom GPS unit: We are partial to the high-tech 4.3″ screen TomTom XL 325S unit. At the time of writing it isn’t yet available. If you just can’t wait to make your purchase, or if you’d like a larger screen, Spot Cool Stuff suggests a 5″ TomTom XXL 540 model.

    Great idea! We have a fit, too, which makes me like this post even more. I posted this idea of using celebrity voices for Navi systems awhile back, so I’m glad someone is taking off with it.. How fun.
    Cheers,
