Waze users' navigation can now be voiced by a Terminator Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, thanks to Terminator Genisys’ new partnership with Waze. And yes, it’s really Arnold calling the navigational shots.
In a new option, which is available on the app today, the former California governor provided voiceover for Waze to promote the film. Drivers who use the navigation system will be treated to customised Terminator-isms like “I’m looking for Sarah Connor, but I’ll get you to your destination first”.
The irony of a cyborg ordering a human around in a car was not lost on Schwarzenegger:
“In 1984, when we did (the first) Terminator, we talked about the world being run by machines. It was science fiction then. Now you have machines telling you where to drive.”
