“Applications may not be designed or marketed for real time route guidance; automatic or autonomous control of vehicles, aircraft, or other mechanical devices; dispatch or fleet management; or emergency or life-saving purposes.”
It is possible that Apple may be developing its own GPS application or it may be forming a deal with another company. Either way this may be bad news for TomTom who just announced they have developed an iPhone application!

It is very probable that Apple has made sole agreements with TomTom regarding GPS functionality, in an effort to make more money.

ok guys i dug it up ill put in bold all the weird stuff. “APPLE COMPUTER, INC. / SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT FOR iTUNES” revision: “EA0367 / Rev 9/7/06″

In no event shall Apple’s total liability to you for all damages (other than as may be required by applicable law in cases involving personalinjury) exceed the amount of fifty dollars ($50.00).
**mirrormind note - so if for whatever reason itunes f*s up your pc, theyll give you $50

*** I love the last item. 3Com is not liable for “fluctuations in air conditioning”. Good to know. And why this is in a license for Apple’s iTunes

Read the update from Engadgets post:
Update: Astute commenter Austin points out that these terms are copied almost word-for-word from the Google Maps API terms -- which means that TomTom and others are probably free to use their own maps to do real-time guidance.

TOMTOM just released this statement:
"We haven't officially announced anything, we're just commenting to the press on a 'reactive not proactive' basis."
A source within TOMTOM also stated:
"there are actually no software prototypes in existence."Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

Today Tomtom confirmed that they do have a working version for iPhone:
Since months there were rumors that the navigation device manufacturer Tomtom is working on an iPhone version of its software. TomTom's German public relations agency now confirmed these rumours to SPIEGEL ONLINE. In fact they did start to port the software shortly after the SDK release and do now have a working Tomtom version for iPhone.
They didn't provide details about possible marketing or about negotiations between Apple and Tomtom. The problem: In the conditions of use for Apple's software developers you can find a passage, that explicitly prohibits the development of navigation software for the iPhone. The text states: "Applications my not be designed or marketed for real-time route guidance."
The meaning of this restriction is unclear. Possibly Apple wants to establish its own navigation software, perhaps "iNavigate". The company might also already be working with U.S. manufacturer Garmin on a navigation solution.

Did anyone forget that on the Keynote at WWDC 2008 they said there will be more then one method of downloading and installing applications on your iphone?
1. Download Straight from phone.
2. Download from iTunes and Install.
3. Download from Internet and install through itunes.
Wouldn't it be possible with the third option to just download and install it on your phone?
