The popular GPS app Waze has added the voice of Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) as a navigation option. And it’s a lot of fun if you don’t mind hearing his frequent “Ka-chow!” catchphrase.
A tie-in to the release of Cars 3, you can also change your display vehicle icon to Lightning McQueen or new character Jackson Storm (if you prefer a more classy voice you can also select Storm – voiced by Armie Hammer – as a navigation option).
To set your navigation voice to Lightning McQueen or Jackson Storm, open the Waze settings (the gear icon) and scroll to “Voice directions” and look for “English (US) – Lightning McQueen” or “English (US) – Jackson Storm”.
To change your vehicle icon, go to the Waze settings, scroll to “Advanced settings” and select “Display & map”. Select “Car on map” and select Lightning McQueen or Jackson Storm.
Unlike the recent addition of Mr. T’s voice to Waze, Lightning McQueen and Jackson Storm are available to Canadian Wazers.
Cars 3 opens in theatres on June 16. Check out the trailer below.
