Colin Leggo and Jam First launch world's first Cornish-accent sat nav download.


Are you one of them daft buggers what can't read a bleddy map?

Well, good news because if you've got a TomTom or Garmin sat nav thing, you can now get it to bark instructions at you in a proper job Cornish accent.

No shit, I tell ee.

The brainchild of legendary Cornish filmmaker Colin Leggo and some other chap called Jam First, the system offers you a choice of different voices from the assorted larynxes of the Trebilcock family, viz Pam, Frank, Leonard and Lucy.

However, as I don't own a car and therefore have no idea what all this sat nav stuff is anyway, that's about as much as I can tell you with any vague semblance of authority.

That said, when I had a look round the website from where you can download these packages (and which we have now added to our Links page) I did see something about there being special introductory prices of £9.99 ($16.81) or something plus a bit indicating that Android and iOS versions will be available shortly.

Whatever that means.

Anyway, my pasty's going cold so here's the promo vid, embedded here on the Rake & Herald from Colin's fan-flippin'-tastic YouTube channel.

Get on!

Chief hack's note: This is NOT a joke. It appears that you really can download these voice packages or whatever you call them for your sat nav thing. What's more, you'll probably read about this in the local and national press very shortly. In which case, just remember that you read about it here on the Rake & Herald first. Yep, we scooped the buggers so shove that up your jinker, Mr Murdoch.
