With the number of GPS owners in the country growing at a substantial rate, more and more people are trying to do cool things with their navigational devices, from downloading custom avatars to now custom turn-by-turn voices and points of interest.
P.I.G.Tones, The Politically Incorrect GPS, is, according to their website, “a software company that offers Garmin and Tom Tom users the ability to download cool, funny, and irreverent new voices to their devices, replacing the boring standard voices that come with the units.”
Voices range from Stewie and Peter from Family Guy, to “The Governator”, Sean Connery, Homer, Cartman, and a slew of hilarious others. Granted, these aren’t licensed, which means you won’t get Seth McFarlane doing the official voices of Stewie or Peter, but the impression is pretty spot-on.
Not only does the site contain politically incorrect voices, but some great POI (Points of Interest) Maps for you to download as well. Looking for a great place to eat that your standard GPS hasn’t figured out yet, or are you looking to avoid pesky speed traps or school zones? Well, to co-opt a phrase from Apple: “There’s a map for that.” Also, for the dudes in the house, there’s a special-yet-funny “Adult Entertainment” map including things like gentlemen clubs, strip bars, and all the things that would make your parents ashamed.
The prices for each voice are pretty reasonable, coming in at about $13 a voice, with new bundles and specials popping up every week. The maps come in a bit higher, but its more bang for the buck, so it’s OK. Check out PIGTones, and tell that boring Jill to move on.
