Tom Tom Top Gear Edition out now

Tom Tom has taken the wraps of its in Top Gear Edition GO Live GPS navigation system featuring the voice of co-host Jeremy Clarkson. It joins a range of devices now featuring the Clarkson's unique take on driving (audio embedded below) including the PS3's Gran Turismo 5 and the Xbox 360's forthcoming Forza Motorsport 4.

The model is a variant of Tom Tom's GO live 1535 M navigation unit, but with a Top Gear twist. In addition to Clark's inimitable turn-by-turn guidance, the device comes with a range of preinstalled Top Gear-themed content. Among these are special startup and shutdown screens and Top Gear-styled icons. Also getting the Top Gear treatment are points-of-interest (POIs).

However, if uses happen to get tired of Clarkson's commentary, the Tom Tom Top Gear Edition also comes with a 'Stig Mode.' As fans of Top Gear will know, The Stig (Top Gear's test driver) does not speak during filmed episodes. So, instead of hearing Clarkson, users also have the option of viewing the display for directions in silence if they choose.

The Tom Tom Top Gear Edition is retailing for $270. [via CNET]
