Crazy Taxi Garmin GPS Voice

Here is a project I’d been talking about for years, but never actually pulled it off until recently. It’s a voice set for a Garmin GPS, which replaces the default “narrator” with the obnoxious announcer from Crazy Taxi.
All voice clips were pulled from the PC version of the game, which had them in convenient .wav format already. Some trim / normalize with Audacity and import into Garmin Voice Studio to assemble together. I wanted to do more than just the announcer, but didn’t have any luck with that… there just weren’t enough clips to make it happen.

Here’s a video of the system in action:

I hosted all the downloadables on archive.org. You can get it from here:
