TomTom launches Top Gear Limited Edition GPS

TomTom has unleashed a limited edition GPS device designed for fans of the popular Top Gear television show. The TomTom GO LIVE Top Gear edition, as it's called, features Stig mode, Jeremy Clarkson's voice-guided directions, and unique points of interests selected by Top Gear, including race tracks and raceways related to the show.

The TomTom GO LIVE Top Gear edition features Top Gear-themed start-up and shut-down screens and car icons. You can use the device in silent mode by selecting The Stig mode, or you can choose to have Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson's voice guide you throughout your journey. This limited edition also features more detailed maps, hands-free calling via Bluetooth, and voice recognition.

Like other TomTom GPS devices, it will also feature the TomTom HD Traffic technology that steers drivers away from traffic jams and updates traffic information every two minutes. This includes incident reports that detail the length of the delay and the cause.

The device is priced at $269.95 and includes a one-year subscription to TomTom's LIVE Services, which offers access to Google local search, weather forecasts, and TomTom HD Traffic, among other connected features.
