    Please could somebody put this idea forward? ...
    Red Dwarf edition Holly sat nav! 8)
    Would be awesome, especially if it actually has his/her face on saying something random every time it starts up, then goes to the map with Holly's voice and says funny things between directions. :P

    Brilliant! Would work best with Norman Lovett IMO.

    I think I'd prefer Hattie.

    I think there's somewhere you can get famous people's voices for sat - nav, maybe you can get Norman or Hattie's voice there?

    Another possible feature, although this one should probably have a turn off option as it could get annoting and should only be used if the driver has a good sense of humour and doesn't need to go anywhere quickly, is for him/her to make a mistake and then correct him/herself afterwards like in Queeg.
    - that connects with the white cable (explosion throws Lister over desk) or is that the yellow cable? yeah, it's the yellow cable.
    - after 200 yards turn left (car turns left) or is that right? yeah, it's right

    Sounds good until Joe Public drives his family off a cliff in Dover and sues the Satnav voice company!! :-)

    That's why you can turn it off.

    And the last words to come out of the satnav after the crash will be "I suppose you're going to fail me for this?"

    That would be really funny.

    Holly "You've arrived at your destination"
    Holly "Oh hang on a mo ! was it Scotland or Surrey we were going to ? they both have an S in them."

    That would be brilliant, although the driver wouldn't like it much.

    I came across the Kryten Sat Nav on google, but I think a Holly Sat Nav would be far more effective!

    I'd prefer Holly.

    For the Norman vs Hattie maybe you could choose which one to have.
