If you tend to get lost whilst out for walkies wearing the wrong trousers, this week's giveaway could help point you in the right direction. The prize? A Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS unit and downloadable Wallace & Gromit voice skin. It'll guarantee you a grand day out.
The new voice skin features Wallace and his ever-faithful canine pal Gromit offering turn-by-turn directions such as "Are we nearly there yet? Only Gromit's got his Tai-Chi class later, an' I'm ready for me tea" and "Well would you believe it, we have reached our destination, ha, ha, crack open the Caerphilly." All the while, you'll see the pair's infamous van driving across the on-screen map.
The Garmin Nuvi 1300 GPS unit normally costs $110, with the W&G voice skin going for $12.99, but you have a chance to get both for less than the cost of a nice slice of Wensleydale (i.e. free).
