Take Your Turn-by-Turn Directions from Marge Simpson or Mr. Burns on TomTom

For a relatively small fee, Marge Simpson and/or Mr. Burns will happily tell you where to make your next turn, or order you around the neighborhood depending on which character you choose. They're the newest voice downloads to land on the TomTom navigation app for iPhone, iPad, and personal navigation devices (PNDs), the company announced today.

"We want to keep the offerings on the TomTom app fresh and exciting by introducing new voices at different times," said Jeffrey Godsick, President of Fox Consumer Products. "We know that fans of the show are going to appreciate these new additions as it gives them yet another platform to enjoy one of the greatest shows of all time.


Marge Simpson and Mr. Burns join the voice of Home Simpson, which TomTom claims has become the most downloaded character voice of all time for TomTom GPS apps and PNDs. Each one costs $5.99 as an in-app purchase on the iPhone and iPad, or $12.95 as a download for use on TomTom PNDs.

Pretty cool, but a bit costly.

If you have the Homer Simpson one and you miss a turn does it go "D'oh!"

HAHAHAAHAA if you are looking for something funny when traveling becomes boring, the money you pay for it won't mean nothing compared to the fun you will experience :) Tomtom and garmin are technologically sophisticated GPS and expensives :)

They have to pay for the rights from Fox to use the voices so I am sure that is part of the reason for the cost. $12.95 for all three voices is not too bad for the TomTom GPS devices. Keeping you entertained while driving long distances is certainly a nice thing though I am sure people will get sick of the voices pretty quickly like they do with the standard ones.
