iPhone TomTom app gets Star Wars voices

Star Wars voice commands have come to the latest version of the TomTom app for iPhones, as George Lucas finds new and inventive ways to exploit milk? his galactic cash cow.

The revamped version 1.5 of the app offers users a choice between the gnomic wisdom and idiosyncratic syntax of Yoda, Han Solo’s breezy chutzpah or Darth Vadar’s breathy menace. Jar Jar Binks’ meta-irritating language mangling, thank Christ, is not an option.

Also new to the daddy of iPhone sat nav apps is the option to navigate to a geo-tagged photo.

The Star Wars voices cost £3.49 each and are available to buy within the app. Users in the UK and Ireland are looking at £50 one off charge for TomTom itself.

Android owners need not be left out of the Star Wars-related smartphone fun. Last month, a special R2D2 edition of the Motorola Droid hit stores in the US, offering unique themed content.
