Top Gear's Jeremy Clarkson has just landed a new gig - as the voice of TomTom sat nav's.
But have no doubt Clarkson instructions have added oomph, like the man himself.
"There's a tone of voice I use when ordering people to do things, so 'I said left, left, I said left, you know that kind of thing," he told The Sunday Times.
The TomTom sat nav's blessed with the Top Gear's presenters unmistakable voice, released in Europe next month.
But its not just Clarkie - you can also put his version in 'Stig' mode. But it doesnt speak. "Personally, I would use The Stig the most," he said.
But the petrol head's arrival on the sat nav scene has displeased some from the safety brigade.
|"I'm not sure I would want to taking instructions from Jeremy Clarkson, while behind the wheel," said Julie Townsend, from Brake, UK's road safety charity. |
