Get your Garmin talking Na’Vi

Tired of hearing the same old sat nav voice?  You’ve now arrived at your “tìkan” (destination). In celebration of the release of AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition on Blu-ray and DVD this week you can now customize your Garmin nüvi with Na’vi voice directions.  Due to growing demand from the public, Garmin has released customized directions in the native language of Avatar’s Na’vis, which are downloadable on the Garmin website.

The ultimate Avatar fan can now get full driving instructions – mìn ftär (turn left), mìn skien (turn right) and txìng musìna tsengit (exit roundabout) for example, making getting to your destination all that much more exciting for Avatar fans here in the U.K.

Taronyu aka Richard Littauer, the U.K’s number 1 Avatar fan, who also created a Na’Vi dictionary has been working with Garmin to record the vocal cues and directions in Na’Vi for customers to download.

Anthony Chmarny, Garmin’s Head of Communications said, “ The Na’Vi voice is a bit of fun to help celebrate the release of the Extended Collector’s Edition of AVATAR. It’s great and I’m sure it will bring a smile to your face when trying to get from ‘A to B’ whilst using your Garmin nüvi sat nav.”

The three-disc AVATAR Extended Collector’s Edition Blu-ray and AVATAR Collector’s Edition DVD were released on Monday and both feature the original theatrical release, a special edition re-release, and new collector’s extended cut with over 15 more minutes including an exclusive alternate opening earth scene.
