Morgan Freeman as the voice behind your GPS navigator!


Yes, you read that right! Morgan Freeman, the man with perhaps the most iconic voice (ever?) is now a GPS navigation voice artist. On Waze! And already the internet is going crazy… It’s not trending on Twitter yet but just give it a few hours.

Okay, before you go bananas. All one needs to do to get Morgan Freeman to be the voice behind the GPS navigator is to open Waze’s settings and under the Sound->Voice Language menu┬áselect the magic option “Morgan Freeman”!

How did Waze (and Google) get Morgan Freeman to agree to this? Who cares! (but if you really do – its a movie promotion tie-up). Read the EW article for more.


I am one of those passionate "Geo-geeks" and "Geo-people" who is just too excited about everything Geo and Management. Location information and spatial technologies are just too big to take a back seat and watch them revolutionize the world. Always curious and looking for ways to innovate, I guess that it comes naturally by the gene pool I inherited from an engineer Mom and a researcher Dad.
