Last month Darth Vader found his way into Garmin GPS devices , and now Yoda gets his turn, offering some balance against the dark side of the Force.

The Yoda voice skin, which can be found at Spot It Out's GPS App Shop, gives directions for upcoming turns using Yoda's odd speech patterns, although the voice actor is no Frank Oz.

It also fills in with some Obi Wan Kenobi voice clips from the movies, along with sound effects. The coolest thing is the music score, coming on when you arrive at your destination.

Locutio Voice Technologies, which produced the Darth Vader and Yoda voice skins for Garmin, previously produced "Star Wars" voice skins for TomTom GPS devices .

The Yoda voice is available at Spot It Out's GPS App Shop for $12.99.
