For folks with a Garmin Navi system check if your GPS supports the Garmin Garage features. laugh out loud

There's a bunch of free voices, vehicles, and dashboards you can upgrade your Garmin GPS with. Star Wars, The Simpsons, Wallace & Gromit are a few of the options. This should help keep the kids entertained during the upcoming holiday roadtrips some of us will be taking to visit family. Enjoy! hug

Free Dashboards page: http://www8.garmin.com/vehicles/dashboards/

*Note: You may first need to download/install the The Garmin Communicator plugin to your computer. nod

For example here's the additional feature specs for my Garmin 265WT:
"Go Beyond Navigation -
Navigation is just the beginning. nüvi 265WT includes many travel tools, including JPEG picture viewer, world travel clock, automatic time zone transition, currency converter, unit converter, calculator and more. The 265WT is compatible with our free Garmin Garage™ where you can download animated vehicles that show your location on the map. It also comes with Garmin Lock™, an anti-theft feature. Enhance your travel experience with optional plug-in SD™ cards such as Garmin Travel Guides for detailed data on attractions."

Eh...I dont believe any of those voices you mentioned (Star Wars, Simpsons, etc.) are free. It shows 9.99 for me.

you can still get some of the star wars content for free, i.e. the tie fighter and x-wing vehicles in the free vehicles set.

looks like only select content is free. try this communicator plug-in link instead.
