What if your daily commute could turn into an adventure voiced by Arnold Schwarzenegger?

It can, at least for a little while: Navigation app Waze commissioned the Terminator himself to voice driving instructions, according to this exclusive in USA Today. The “Arnold” voice will be available from today through mid-July.

“I know where you’re going, and I will get you there,” he says in the promotional video. “Trust me.”

“In 1984, when we did (the first) Terminator, we talked about the world being run by machines. It was science fiction then,” Schwarzenegger said in USA Today. “Now you have machines telling you where to drive.”

Google acquired Waze in 2013, as we reported here. In March, the company announced that it was adding Amber alerts, and that the app would come pre-installed on Android smartphones as a Google mobile service option.

Also fun to note: Microsoft was one of the original investors in Waze.

Schwarzenegger lending his famous voice to the app is part of the promotional push for the film, Terminator Genisys, out July 1.
