If you’re as bad as some of my family members at remembering various routes when driving, the TomTom Go Live 820 Top Gear Edition Sat Nav could be the ideal gift for a friend or loved one this Christmas. Available exclusively at Halfords this Christmas, for £180, the Top Gear Edition Sat Nav features HD Traffic, a 4.3-inch touchscreen display, and best of all you get to listen to Jeremy Clarkson tell you where you’ve messed up! Let’s take a closer look…

The Top Gear Edition of the TomTom Go Live 820 is a limited edition and would be a great gift for Top Gear fans!

1 TomTom GO LIVE 820 Top Gear Edition Sat Nav Review

The TomTom Go Live 820 arrives in a, standard black and blue, Top Gear themed box. The front features both images of the Stig and also the sat nav itself. The Top Gear and the TomTom logo are situated at the top and bottom of the front, respectively.

If we flip the box over, a few of the features are listed as well as an image of the sat nav in action and also the package contents.

Now, on to the sat nav itself.

The TomTom Go Live 820 is completely black in colour and relatively lightweight (always a good thing when sticking a sat nav to car windows in m experience). A silver bezel can be seen around the edges as well as a small microphone on the lower left side of the bottom, which can be used in conjunction with either the Bluetooth Handsfree feature or the Voice Control feature.

The rear of the TomTom Go Live 820 features the power button, the microUSB port (used for charging and installing software updates) and also the car mount, which is permanently attached to the sat nav.

The speaker for the TomTom Go Live 820, where you’ll be entertained for hours by the man himself, Jeremy Clarkson, is located on the rear underneath the car mount.
