Get Sven to guide you to Germany


Here’s a great story I picked up via top World Cup Blog Who Ate All The Bratwurst – you can download a sat nav pack to guide you to the Word Cup venues, voiced by England boss Sven Goran Eriksson!

Ok, so the voice is just a synthesised impression of the Swede, but you’ve got to admire their style. The pack, offered by TomTom, also personalises your maps with country colours, as well as flagging up all the specific football points of interest, including sports cafes and hotels, including the ones the players are staying in. It also provides the locations of all the World Cup stadiums, as well as all the large TV screens in Germany showing the match.

The package will be available to download for all TomTom users from the end of April 2006, directly from For more on the World Cup itself, keep tuned into Who Ate All The Bratwurst.
