HAVE DARTH VADER TELL YOU WHERE TO GET OFF: Star Wars GPS Devices Released

Forget the confusing, often irritating directions of your usual map-reading illiterate, passenger seat driver. Now thanks to TomTom GPS you can show up at your destination, guided in complete safety by the universe's ultimate bad-ass himself - Darth Vader.

Better yet this isn't some synthesized GPS voice, made to sound like the ultimate force of the Sith - the instructions were actually voiced by James Earl Jones himself!

Like Luke's X-Wing being guided to the heart of the Death Star, getting from point a) to point b) has never been cooler - or cheaper, with each Star Wars GPS device priced at just $13 bucks (US)! Plus, you'll soon be able to chose directional advice from both sides of the force, with C-3PO released in June, Yoda in July, or Han Solo in August!

Visit TomTom GPS for details, downloadable GPS start-up screens and content, right after checking out this humourously awesome vid of Lord Vader, recording his directional pearls of wisdom live!

So who would you like to have a GPS of?

  2. That would've been cool Rob!

    Sadly one of my all time favourite characters will never make the grade, I mean can you imagine driving round directed by the Riddler?
