Home Reviews Software Whereis navigation – now for Android with a celebrity twist

Android users can now be told where to go by some of Australia’s most iconic celebrity voices.

Originally launched in August 2011, the iPhone version of the Whereis app has more than 500,000 drivers using the app’s hands-free technology. It is now one of the most popular free navigation apps for iPhones in Australia.

Jennifer Hawkins tops the list as the most popular voice. Iconic Dame Edna Everage, “Wog Boy” Nick Giannopoulos, ‘The Voice of Rugby League’ Ray Warren, AFL’s ‘centimetre-perfect’ Dennis Cometti and the ‘marvellous’ Billy Birmingham, aka ‘The 12th Man’.

Jennifer Hawkins: “Hey there, this is Jennifer Hawkins, are you going my way?”

Billy Birmingham (the 12th man) as Richie: “Welcome back to the central driving position, and we'll be taking off in just a few moments.”

Ray Warren: “Ooohhhh it doesn't get any better than this, the chance to become legendary.”

Dame Edna Everage: “Hellooooo possums, Dame Edna here! Where are we off to today?”

Nick Giannopoulos as The Wog Boy: “Sub-woofer up, windows down...ok mate let’s go!

Dennis Cometti: “That was a convincing drive today. The passengers have to be happy with that. That was centimetre perfect.”
