Custom Voice is car manufacturer Clarion's solution to the lifeless, monotonous speech programs in modern GPS systems.

What if, instead of an annoyingly robotic voice, you were guided to your destination by a loved one or even a favorite actor? Custom Voice makes this happen with this new gadget. After installing the system on your computer, a tutorial on Clarion's website will help record and format any voice in the world into a GPS guide. So whether you'd prefer Morgan Freeman to give you directions or your 2-year-old son, this software makes both desires possible.

As user-generated content becomes a necessity in most service industries, it's promising to see the emergence of programs like Custom Voice. Imagine companies selling prepackaged celebrity voices at the same price as modern ringtones! After all, I wouldn't mind hearing Bruce Willis telling me to put on the breaks before an upcoming turn.
