LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19 (UPI) -- Sesame Street has teamed up with Garmin to bring backseat drivers Bert and Ernie into the cars of American drivers.

The Muppet characters are the latest celebrity voices made available to tick off directions through the Garmin GPS navigation system.

The characters get users where they are going and throw in wise cracks such as Ernie remarking, "U-turn ahead, Bert." To which Bert replies "Just me?"

The Los Angles Times said Bert and Ernie are available for $13 through Locutio Voice Technologies along with previously released guest navigators Darth Vader and rapper Snoop Dog.
