(Newser) – The world's first satellite navigation comedy has British drivers chuckling up and down the country's busiest highway, the Guardian reports. The "satcom," called 230 Miles of Love, features audio comedy sketches set to play when drivers reach certain points along the country's 230-mile-long M6 highway.

The program, which can be downloaded free to drivers' GPS systems, is the latest use of navigation systems for more than finding your way. Other programs alert UK drivers when they are near historic castles or monuments, and the Good Pub Guide has launched a guide to the finest watering holes.
