TomTom has all but dominated the after-market GPS industry and by now it’s no wonder. Their systems are fantastic and now they’re even giving their products a healthy dose of character to make us love them even more.
TomTom announced recently they’d be releasing a special edition voice-pack for their devices using Jeremy Clarkson from TopGear UK as a downloadable expansion. Sadly, the pack was pulled before it ever hit the electronic shelves. They also have Snoop Dogg, Star Wars, Bugs Bunny, The Simpsons, and more! If the TopGear ans Star Wars idea wasn’t badass enough for ya, though, check out what they’re doing now! They’ve released an expansion voice-pack using Bert & Ernie from Sesame Street to tell you where you’re going! In the above video you’ll see the “behind the scenes” footage of the most famous gay couple ever goofing about in the studios, but don’t worry; the final product isn’t as confusing. You can, however, give the system a test-run on their website (link given below) to listen to how the final commands will sound. Still funny, by the way.
If you have a TomTom, you’re in luck! You can now download the Bert & Ernie voice-pack online and through your TomTom for only $12.95.. It really makes me want to go buy a TomTom.
