Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, The Gracie Films worldwide brand division and Locutio Voice Technologies announced a partnership to use the original Homer Simpson voice for TomTom’s range of personal navigation devices.

The TomTom App featuring Homer’s voice recorded by Dan Castellaneta is now available for iPhone in the U.S., marking the first time a celebrity voice has ever been available for mobile phone based GPS.

“This partnership brings together two of the most iconic names: Homer Simpson and the iPhone,” says Robert Marick, executive vice president at Fox Consumer Products. “Transitioning this service to mobile GPS systems gives fans an all-new platform that can be accessed anywhere, anytime to enjoy ‘The Simpsons’ and navigate road trips in an entertaining way.”
