Home James... Aussie TomTom voice

James Gauci of Brisbane, Queensland has won the $10,000 prize in a competition to find TomTom's new Australian voice.

The 23-year-old Griffith University psychology student has a history of performing, singing and comedy ... skills he put to good use in his audition tape, which can be heard at www.bethevoice.com.au.

"Where are you headed? 2020 at the 'Gabba - nice work! At the end of the road, hang a left. Now cruise a coupla hundred metres past and turn onto Wellington. Oh! You know what, there are a couple of these sweet four-hour parks in Pott St. Turn right here. Beauty, we're here. Have a beer for me, ay."

Gauci was the $10,000 winner in a competition run by the Dutch company to find the typical Australian voice for use with its GPS devices.

Selection of the winner was done with a combination of Tomtom judging quality and correctness of voice instructions, plus votes from the general public.
