Stephen Fry Adds His Voice to TomTom

By Gary Cutlack on at

Satnav specialist TomTom has signed another celebrity, with verbose TV presenter, comedian and self-appointed Twitter PR man Stephen Fry lending his voice to TomTom turn-by-turn directions.

Fry himself actually broke this news himself on Twitter a few months back, when he revealed he was in the process of doing the voice recording work. Now it's done, with TomTom charging users of compatible devices £7.95 to hear the man's soft tones gently easing away the stress of modern commuting.

There are some short audio previews up on the TomTom site. It's all very nice, but we think it might start to get a little much if you're on a long journey. [TomTom]
