(Newser) – Good news for those of you who are sick of the generic voice dictating directions from your Garmin GPS: Now you can have Yoda or Darth Vader order you around instead. The Star Wars voices can be downloaded for $12.99 each on Garmin's website, and the best part is that they stay true to the characters. A sample Yoda line: "Right you should turn, then sharp left ... control, control, if a Jedi you wish to be." Vader, on the other hand, will say things like, "Proceed as indicated. Don't make me destroy you." (Naturally, his trademark heavy breathing is also included, notes the Los Angeles Times.)
