Get driving directions from Ichabod Crane with Waze

If you use the Waze app for navigation (available for Android, iOS and WP, links to each app store can be found here), and you're a fan of Sleepy Hollow, you can now get spoken directions from Ichabod Crane. If you have the app running, you should get an add pop-up with an option to install the voice, so just use that. Otherwise, you should be able to check settings. You'll also find that Terry Crews' voice is available, so I might have to try that out too.

I don't normally use voice navigation because I have a holder for my phone so it's at eye level, but I tried it out a little and he refers to your car as a "carriage" while telling you which way to turn. But no street names.

Just a warning, I've seen mixed reviews on how reliable voice navigation is, with some complaints that the directions are given out too late, after a street has already been passed. So if you have a holder that keeps your phone in view without turning your eyes from the road, I'd still go with the visual cues.

Update with review: tried the voice navigation on the way home. I was also playing music off my phone through the car's bluetooth system, so whenever Ichabod would say something, the music volume would lower a little but not stop, so it's like he was trying to speak over the music, and I could hear him when he was announcing when to turn, and if traffic was bad up ahead, but I couldn't make out what he was saying when there was a hazard warning. The directions were given in plenty of time to actually use them if I didn't already know where I was going, so that's probably something that varies by device and its GPS accuracy (I'm on a Nexus 5). Overall, if it wasn't in Ichabod's charming Brittish accent and I wasn't a fan of the show, I'd just keep it on silent since I'm able t look at it while keeping my eyes on the road, but it's still fun.
