If Morgan Freeman does not satisfy your GPS navigation needs, Waze is now offering a new announcer and his name is Shaquille O’Neal.

Shaquille O'Neal on Waze

Shaquille O’Neal is your personal copilot

That’s right, the man who not only won an NBA championship, but also starred in the American classic film Kazaam can guide you along your route.  This is assuming of course that you have your volume turned all the way up so you can actually hear him.

Shaq’s voice has been available worldwide since April 13, 2016 and will only be for a limited time.  Waze does not say how long the special voice setting will last.  At the time of typing this article he is still on there.

“Don’t cause a Shaqcident” and “Police reported ahead.  Don’t be Shaqtin a fool!” are a few of the phrases that will help guide you along your route.

Waze’s Shaquille O’Neal update is to promote the 2016 NBA Playoffs.

To download the backboard breaker himself follow the following steps:

Select Menu → Settings → Sound → Voice Language → Shaquille O’Neal

Waze is available on Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
