If you could have any voice programmed into your sat nav whose would you have?

Asked by ucme (45772points) August 7th, 2010

Yeah, I’ve heard this is going to be an option soon. Having your own personal selection of who you want to hear give you directions & so forth. So I was wondering, which voice would you pick given the oppurtunity? Someone you know or perhaps your own or maybe a famous voice from the past or present?

Milo here; Gail. Her voice is modulated and clear, and now that I think of it, one of her better features.

I heard they wanted Bob Dylan to do this, but he turned them down.

I would want Captain Pickard, or maybe Scotty if I can get him shouting “You’re goin’ too fast Captain! She’s breakin’ apart!”

A friend/former co-worker in New Orleans. I used to occasionally call his v-mail after hours just to hear that wonderful accent.

Alan Rickman or David Tennant (in his real Edinburgh voice)

As in, Evan Almighty, if Morgan Freeman told me to turn left it would be very hard for me to turn right.

I’d like the voice of a fine central Texas sweetheart country girl!

Preferably not a known celebrity.
