Need an excuse to try out Waze? The crowdsourced mapping app is getting new audio directions this week voiced by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger as a promotion for the upcoming Terminator movie.
USA Today reports that the movie star turned politician will quote some of his most memorable lines for Waze. That includes “Hasta la vista, Baby” along with more straightforward commands like “turn left.” Schwarzenegger apparently spent about an hour in the studio recording his lines.

Waze has called on other celebrities to lend their voices, including Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine Nine) and comedian Kevin Hart. However, this might be the best fit so far.
“In 1984, when we did (the first) Terminator, we talked about the world being run by machines. It was science fiction then,” Schwarzenegger told USA Today. “Now you have machines telling you where to drive.”
Arnold’s voice will grace your Waze app from now until mid-July. So, if you’re itching to hit the open road with a killer robot companion, don’t wait too long. We’re sure the Google-owned company also has plans for future celebrity tie-ins, but it won’t be easy to top The Terminator.
