More specifically, he is offering his Terminator persona in a tie in with the new movie “Terminator Genisys” which is due out on July 1st.
Everyone remembers those few lines that Schwarzenegger became famous for from the first Terminator film back in 1984, specifically “I’ll be back.” He got a few more lines in the sequels.
For free, Waze users can now add the following statements to hear when getting directions:

“I know where you’re going, and I will get you there … trust me.”
“In need of a Terminator? No problemo … I will join the ride. Let’s move!”
“My mission is to protect you … accident ahead!”
“You have reached your destination. … Hasta la vista, baby!”
“Mission accomplished. It has to end here. … I’ll be back!”
“From the first time I used Waze, I have wanted to lend my voice to it. The Terminator is the perfect machine to guide Wazers to their destinations, ” said Schwarzenegger. “Every single day on social media fans ask me to record my movie lines, so now I get to bring this classic role and my charming Austrian accent into their cars.”
“Partnering with Waze is a fun way to bring the ‘Terminator’ to millions of fans all over the world, ” said Megan Wahtera, SVP of Interactive Marketing at Paramount Pictures. “Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator is one of the most recognizable and iconic voices and we are excited for fans to experience him in this unique way.”
