Morgan Freeman's voice is one of our generation's most iconic. 

The Academy Award winner has played God in Bruce Almighty (2003), the President of the United States in Deep Impact (1998), and has provided the voice over narration for several noted documentaries.

But now, Freeman's voice has reached a new frontier - GPS Navigation.

Google's navigation app, Waze, has recently added Freeman's voice to their collection of celebrity GPS voice options.


Other celebrities featured on the app include Stephen Colbert, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kevin Hart, as well as fictional characters Darth Vader from Star Wars and Colonel Sanders from KFC.

However, unlike other stars Waze users can select from, fan users of the app find Freeman's voice carries a certain gravitas no one else's voice does.
