John Cleese Gives Sat Nav Directions

John Cleese is a funny man. He is probably best known for his roles in Monty Python and Fawlty Towers. However, did you know that you can also have John give you directions as you drive your car?

These days sat nav devices are very popular. A sat nav is a small device, about the size of your palm, that you can use in your car. Using satellites in orbit around the planet, it can reason your exact position and tell you how to get to any address or location.

To get to the destination, you first have to enter this facts into the device. Once this is done and you are on your way, the sat nav will tell you whenever you need to make a turn. It does this in one of two ways: displaying the instructions on the screen and using a special voice to, literally, tell you what you need to do.

This is where John Cleese enters the picture. Many sat nav devices from TomTom and Garmin allow you to choose and agree the voice. There are many websites you can go to where you can download celebrity voices to use on you sat nav. Sometime these downloads are not free and you will need to pay a small fee to get the files.

Once you have downloaded the files you will need to associate the gismo to your computer. You can then naturally copy the files over, just like you usually do when using your computer.

If you don't like John's voice, or character, then there are plenty of others to choose from. How about, Mr. T from the 'A Team' or sexy Kim Cattrall from 'Sex and the City'?
