Arnold Schwarzenegger Lends Voice to Waze Navigation App

Waze scored Arnold Schwarzenegger to bring the Terminator to the Waze App.

Navigation app Waze will release a new voice pack featuring action star Arnold Schwarzenegger. In time for upcoming release of the new Terminator Genisys movie, Waze users will get the joy of following Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator style commands like "I'm a Terminator Cyberdyne Systems Model 101, and you're coming with me."

"In 1984, when we did (the first) Terminator, we talked about the world being run by machines. It was science fiction then," Schwarzenegger said in an interview with USA Today. "Now you have machines telling you where to drive."

Schwarzenegger only needed one hour to record the Terminator. USA Today published a short video of Schwarzenegger in the recording studio.

"It is an added entertainment. Where I come in, I'm bringing the Arnold twist," Schwarzenegger said. "Even in the recording studio, people were laughing at every single line when I put the Arnold spin on it."

Schwarzenegger's thick Austrian accent is making the new Waze voice a treat. Google bought Waze about two years ago and has kept it running independently to Google Maps. Waze is the world's largest community-based traffic and navigation app. Users share real-time traffic and road info, saving its users time and gas money on their daily commute.

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance against Skynet, sends Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect his mother, Sarah (Emilia Clarke), from a Terminator assassin, an unexpected turn of events creates an altered timeline. Instead of a scared waitress, Sarah is a skilled fighter and has a Terminator guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger) by her side. Faced with unlikely allies and dangerous new enemies, Reese sets out on an unexpected new mission: reset the future.

Terminator Genisys will be in theaters on July 1.
