GPS Maker TomTom Gives Homer Simpson A Sense Of Direction

Homer Simpson by Matt Groening.

Turn left at the next intersection. No, right. No, U-turn. D'oh! Wait, that's not the way to Moe's. Turn back around.

Could those be the directions you'll hear when the voice of Homer Simpson tries to guide you to your next destination? Probably not, but he might ask for a donut!

TomTom has just released a download that makes their GPS devices sound like the ever-popular patriarch of The Simpsons TV show. The company is charging $12.95 in the United States for the opportunity to hear Homer say "woo-hoo!" from inside its little black boxes.

You can sample some of Homer's directions on the TomTom Web site.
