When that TomTom Darth Vader voice pack turned up, I wasn’t excited about it. I was never a Vader fan he’s evil after all. I didn’t like Yoda much in the original films, but in the new flicks he was pretty cool.

TomTom has unveiled a video of a behind the scenes look at the recording of the Yoda voice pack for TomTom GPS units. This may well be the funniest commercial ever.

Not a good day to be TomTom and Garmin

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

Not a good day to be TomTom and GarminLooks like both TomTom and Garmin might be having a bit of a bad day to put it mildly, thanks to the announcement of Google Maps Navigation. As the graph shows, things are not looking good. Nope. Not at all.

GPS makers can at least take some comfort in the fact that the new Google Maps Navigation is available on Android 2.0 at the moment, which requires you to have a specific phone to download the maps real time. It will be interesting to see what happens next.
