  • TomTom kit delayed until October


    Our Austrian comrades at BenM.at reveal that the TomTom iPhone hardware kit - a suction cup mount that interfaces with the iPhone and adds functionality - has slipped to October.

    The TomTom iPhone FAQ now reads: "The TomTom car kit availability was originally planned for this summer. But we have decided to take some extra weeks in order to deliver the highest quality on this innovative product." Industry watchers will recognize the shorthand for 'this thing doesn't work yet.'



    The car kit is not necessary to use the software available on the iTunes App Store. When it is used with the iPhone 3G and 3GS, however, the kit boosts GPS signal for the iPhone. The original iPhone and the iPod touch, which do not have built-in GPS, will be able to use the hardware kit to navigate. In addition, the kit will charge the iPhone/iPod and support hands-free calling and music using your car's stereo.

      As far as price goes, I'd bet around $100, seeing how SiriusXM's Skydock is going to be $119.99

      The iPhone with the TomTom add on is not an all in one device. It also proves the fact that the GPS sucks and needs to be assisted. I hate when people say they wanted an all in one device. The normal FREE google maps app has done fine for me traveling accross country and around town. I can't believe there are so many people who waste their money on a 100 app! I can't see why we are in a recession. With that many americans buying crap like this. ... Anyway, Ill be getting one. HA!
      i used TomTom on a friend's 3GS and i thought it sucked.
      running side by side next to my 3GS running google maps,
      it was clear google maps surpasses the TomTom app in pretty much every aspect
      TT couldnt even find my destination a few times it was extremely frustrating

      dont buy the app. i wouldnt mind having the mount though a better GPS signal would be great
