TomTom launches Kylie and Connery satnavs

'Especially for you...'

The essential guide to IT transformation

TomTom hopes to tug at singletons' heartstrings this Valentine’s Day, with the launch of four sexy celebrity satnav voices.

For men, the drive back from the off-licence on 14 February could be accompanied by the voice of Aussie temptress Kylie Minogue telling you that you’ve reached your destination. Alternatively, you could be told to turn right at the next corner by Claudia Schiffer.

For the ladies, there’s a choice between beefy Brad Pitt and the smooth, silver-haired Sean Connery.

Alas, they're not the real thing - all four voices are performed by impersonators, TomTom admitted. But it’s probably as close as you’ll ever come to getting Claudia in your back seat or Pitt in your Porsche Skoda.

TomTom will supply all four voices with each of its satnavs sold between 7 and 21 February. ®
