TomTom Go Live Top Gear Edition GPS Gets Jeremy Clarkson’s Voice, Stig Stays Silent

 |  |  |  |  October 11, 2011


I am a big fan of cars of all sorts and I really enjoy the British version of Top Gear, even though they hate on Americans frequently. I also like the US Top Gear, but it’s not as much fun. If you live in Europe and are a big fan of Top Gear, you can get your own TomTom Go Live Top Gear edition GPS device and it’s packed with cool features for fans of the series.

TomTom Go Live Top Gear Edition

The special edition has the voice of Jeremy Clarkson and a bunch of other Top Gear features. The GPS has speed camera warnings, weather reports, and other things. It features HD traffic updated every two minutes so you can stay out of traffic on and on the hoon. The GPS unit also has the Top Gear POI database with lists of racetracks and more and it has special startup and shutdown screens. Here’s a brief sample of Clarkson’s cheeky GPS voice work for your enjoyment:

One of my favorite things about the Top Gear GPS special is that it has Stig mode where it broods silently. It also has Top Gear car icons rather than some generic car. If you like the idea of this GPS, you can pick one up in the UK right now for £189.00 (~$295 USD)
