Have Arnold Schwarzenegger guide you with the popular Waze app

The World Around You
June 16, 2015

Users of the popular crowdsourced navigation app Waze can now have a little help on their way to a destination.

To celebrate the new “Terminator Genisys” film, which arrives in theaters on Wednesday, July 1, popular actor and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger recorded a number of special voice prompts for the app.

“From the first time I used Waze, I have wanted to lend my voice to it.  The Terminator is the perfect machine to guide Wazers to their destinations,” said Schwarzenegger. “Every single day on social media fans ask me to record my movie lines, so now I get to bring this classic role and my charming Austrian accent into their cars.”

Here’s a sample of what’ll you hear while navigating around town or on your summer vacation:

“I’m looking for Sarah Conner, but we can go to your destination first!”
“I know where you’re going, and I will get you there… trust me”
“In need of a Terminator?  No problemo… I will join the ride. Let’s move!”
“My mission is to protect you… accident ahead!”
“You have reached your destination… hasta la vista, baby!”
“Mission accomplished. It has to end here… I’ll be back!”

You can select the voices in the app by heading to Settings, Sound, Voice Langauge, and then Terminator Genisys.

Waze is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini. It can be downloaded now on the App Store for free. The special Terminator-themed voice is also free.
