Singer "talking to a couple of car companies"

Legendary singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has revealed that his gravelly tones may soon be coming out of sat nav systems up and down the country.

Dylan recently claimed on his Theme Time Radio Hour that he had been in discussions with several car companies about lending his voice for a satellite navigation systems.

He said: "I am talking to a couple of car companies about being the voice of their GPS system. I think it would be good if you are looking for directions and hear my voice saying something like, 'Left at the next street, no a right. You know what? Just go straight'.

"I probably shouldn't do it, because whichever way I go I always end up at one place: Lonely Avenue."
