TomTom for iPhone – Car Navigation App & Car Kit Coming Soon (VIDEO)
The Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) kicked off today and as usual there was a host of new announcements, many of which concerned the iPhone. Our interest was peaked in particular by TomTom which demonstrated the world’s first dedicated in-car navigation solution for the iPhone. Basically, the company is now porting over it’s turn-by-turn navigation software which includes IQ Routes and the latest maps from Tele Atlas. The iPhone already has fantastic GPS capabilities and now will have some great software to really take advantage of the hardware. The other piece of the offering is a new TomTom car kit for the iPhone which has a secure docking station providing enhanced GPS performance and allowing for voice instructions, hands-free calling and in-car charging.
Following the release of Apple’s OS 3.0 operating system, the TomTom navigation application for the iPhone will be available via iTunes. The car kit should be available just before the official launch towards the end of the summer. Please check out the video demonstration after the jump.
