In collaboration with Sesame Workshop and Locutio Voice Technologies, the TomTom uses the voices of Bert and Ernie for guidance instructions. Instead of the usual, rather sterile voice commands on sat-nav systems, Bert and Ernie take a bit more relaxed and friendly attitude to commands.
With Christmas coming up, it could be a fun idea for the kids during long holiday road trips. A recent announcement from the companies behind the application said,
"The friends deliver navigation instructions together and enjoy fun banter such as: "U-turn ahead, Bert. Just me turn? All of us Bert.""
The Bert & Ernie voice application can be downloaded internationally from the TomTom website, for around $12.50 (rubber duckie not included).
