Mr. T Gets You There on Time With Navtones GPS Voice Nav it Your Way With New Multiple Download Options

LOS ANGELES, Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Navtones, the global provider of real celebrity voices for navigation systems, makes quick work of congested and boring routes with their exclusive downloadable Mr. T navigation voice. Like all Navtones celebrity downloads, Mr. T's voice is now available in two configurations, the Standard version delivering the right directions with straight, no-nonsense style, and the Funny version adding in some of T's unmistakable charm along the route. Compatible with all TomTom navigation systems, there is no easier way to avoid traffic and arrive in style with T's commandments or those of any other Navtones voice chiming in through the integrated FM transmitter of TomTom's new GO range, including the aptly-named 920T.

At the request of their international customer base and to provide them a richer navigation experience, Navtones has made available the Standard versions of their highly-acclaimed celebrity voices to better complement different vehicle environments. While the Funny versions of voices provide drivers and passengers with great entertainment and enlightenment along a route, the newly-available Standard versions are best for daily utility in getting from point A to point B.

As the first point of information relayed to travelers in what should be the most attentive of environments, voice plays an essential role in GPS navigation systems by allowing drivers to keep their eyes on the road and free of an ever-increasing number of visual distractions. Will Andre, CEO of Navtones adds, "Most people don't recognize the importance of voice desirability until it's too late and they're on the road with the device barking out banal commands every two hundred yards. Navtones is about entertainment and choice, and when poking at the GPS display at Best Buy, people should ask themselves if they can live, on a daily basis, with this off-the-shelf voice uttering monotone directions from their dash."

Navtones celebrity voices, including Mr. T, Dennis Hopper, Burt Reynolds, and more, are available exclusively from Navtones.com, and can be downloaded in Standard (straight, no chaser) or Funny (with a twist) versions for $12.95. Selectable from a dropdown menu next to each voice, both versions are just $19.95 when purchased together and transactions are in multiple international currencies. Customers who purchased Funny versions of voices prior to today's announcement are eligible to upgrade their celebrity voices for just $7 each by clicking on the link from the Navtones homepage http://www.navtones.com/offer/.
