Test Drive Unlimited 2

Test Drive Unlimited 2 Achievements

Cockpit Addict

Drive 500 km (311 miles) using the cockpit view (any game mode)  

Cockpit View is the in-car camera angle, like a helmet camera. It will not matter what car you're driving, nor if you're in free roam or in a race. It will count the total amount of miles you drive in all of these.

If you feel uncomfortable racing in this view, I'd suggest using it in the free roam mode so that you're not under any pressure and can drive at your own leisure.

When you are using a steering wheel to play the game, cockpit view give it a more realistic effect.So I like it!

What I do is when I'm just driving around I go into cockpit view, but once I enter a race or competition i change to my preferred view. I have already racked about 150 km doing it this way.

For those people who dont mind going in circles but hate cockpit view : )
(Dont know why you'd hate it because that's something that makes the cars worth buying)

Head to Ibiza Area 2 , Just east of the airport is a small parking lot area.
You can drive in there and its empty just do laps, it will take a bit but,
I also used this area for F.R.I.M Level 10 , and F.R.I.M 100,000$ Achievements

Whenever I am driving around in Free Roam to unlock roads, I change to cockpit view.
I just got it, and I've got plenty of road still to discover.

How do you actually get this one? Because I've driven well over 500 MILES in
a car in cockpit view, but still haven't got it. I'm not always on cockpit
view though, so is it 311 miles in total or 311 miles in one go, as in don't
change from cockpit view?

Is the cockpit view the one where your hands are on the steering wheel? or one of the others...? thanks.

Racer ain't a racer without a cockpit view.
I use the cockpit view all the time so this was one of my first achievements in the game.
Oh, and #17 it's the one with the steering wheel.

I just found a small open space and used the elastic band trick. Worked a treat for the cheevo, but my morality took a hit :/

I drove 624 mile in cockpit view without stopping, driving around hawaii and still didn't get the achievement.

Have driven well over 4k Miles so far in the game but never find myself willing to drive 'Cockpit View' for more than maybe 10 miles at one time, Still yet to attain this achievement. Alot of players agree that there are so many blindspots it's difficult to do even the Convoy Missions without random traffic hitting you in this view.

Do you have to do this in the same car?

Or how about go into free roam and get the cockpit view on and unlock the roads, this way you gat the cockpit achievement in no time also you work towards your discovery level and also you get the Cruising,Road Eater and The Expoleer achievement as well. Also it turns those awful drak grey roads into nice colourful roads, also I would highly recommed unlocking all the roads beacuse it works towards your 100% complation! It takes about 50+ hours to unlock all of them to 100%. Also if some of you are finding it hard to get 100% on roads go on YouTube and search "Test Drive Unlimited 2 - Ibiza Area 1 & 2 100% Completion - last bits" Good luck!
