Want Donald Trump’s voice on your GPS? It’s here anyway

Yes, it’s come to this.

Your drive just got a whole lot more annoying thanks to Karta GPS, a navigation company that has added a Donald Trump impersonator to its software.

The dulcet tones of a fake Trump can be added to the iOS or Android app via the Downloads section, and there’s an option to hear Bill Clinton too for the sake of balance.

The Portugese company’s app integrates with Yelp and Foursquare as well, but we have a feeling we’ll be sticking with Waze.

Who needs T-Pain? Waze now lets you record your own GPS directions

Sick of the way your GPS app reads out directions? Now you can take the wheel by recording yourself talking, in a new Waze update.

The new feature (only on Android for now) lets you record your own turn-by-turn instructions. You’ll add your clips to the app’s library so you can make your Waze experience completely unique. 

If you’re weirded out by your own voice, like most of us are, you could add a spouse’s voice instead, or maybe your kid’s. Or maybe your friend who does a great celebrity impersonation — why not?

The feature could also be useful for users who prefer languages that the app doesn’t support yet — you could record commands for a parent who speaks another dialect, for example.

Recordings are private, and not shareable with other users…for now.
