COLUMBUS (WCMH) – The voice of the man who once played God can now guide you through rush hour traffic.

The voice of Morgan Freeman is now an option on the GPS smartphone app Waze.

According to Waze, Freeman is one of the most requested voices by Wazers.

There is a catch, however. The voice is a marketing tie-in for Freeman’s new movie, London Has Fallen. While the voice is that of Morgan Freeman, he will be directing you through traffic as fictional Vice President Allan Trumbull.

Mr. Freeman may also refer to you as the President, saying “I may be the Vice President of America, but you’re the President of this car and it’s time to take action,” as you start a trip.

To activate the voice on your Waze app, simply go to Settings > Sound > Voice Language > Morgan Freeman.
