Which is why it will work with a 2g iphone....which obviously DOESNT have a GPS built in. Its not "enhancing" the signal only.....its creating it.

    And yeah obviously if you were using navigation software that had online mapping you would need an internet connection....

    But all the good Navi software out for the iphone (TomTom, Navigon, Copilot, etc) store all the maps on the iphone so NO internet connection is needed whatsoever.

    Why doesnt it work with an iPod Touch......thats retarded. It should.
    i couldnt of said if any better


    iPhone? ... No?... MYphone!!!

    Don't much care how it works. Can't say for the Touch as I haven't tried it but I can say that the setup works with a 2g. Perhaps someone would like to try it with a Touch and put this issue to bed.

Which enables the software running on the iPhone to translate the lat/long/speed to make the software work.

    Now.... If you have a 3G or S get a veh cradle for 20bucks and mount it since you already have a gps chip builtin,,, or spend the money and enjoy...

    Personally I have tried TT and Navigon... Navigon is much better IMOP...

    Have you tried using it with the sim removed yourself? or are you just making assumptions being that it isnt even available yet

    ima80baby,

    TomTom, Navigon, Sygic, and NDrive all works with SIM card removed from my 3GS. Like everyone else have been trying to tell you. You do NOT need internet connection to use these Sat Nav software.

    When you use the TomTom car kit, it also lets you use the better GPS chips in it via Bluetooth.

    you really have little idea of the technologies you pretend to understand. ROFL. You've even changed your argument since your earlier post and are trying to focus our attentions on the facts of no Internet without wifi fir the iPod Touch. Great show young man, but you need to study the basics some more. TomTom's kit contains a GPS chip that will certainly enhance the GPS signal that the inbuilt iPhone's GPS receives. Why? Because the iPhones GPS chip is crap...to put it bluntly :-)

    back to the comedian....it's people like you that hinder capable noobs of learning much quicker with your misinformation. Please don't hurt yourself responding to this...part of growing up is being able to see and admit you're wrong. LMFAO :-)
    You're totally on point. I noticed he changed his argument when he realized he was wrong also, too bad he was wrong on that also. Good thing I quoted him earlier, he even edited one of his first posts. You're right. Point is, he knows too little about technology to be here talking about it.

    I'm officially labeling him a technologic retard.

    Update: TOM TOM APP NOW WORKS WITH IPOD TOUCH AND IPHONE 2G + SPECIAL CAR KIT NOW AVAILABLE FOR IPOD TOUCH (79€) BUT WITHOUT FREE SPEECH CONFIG (NO PHONE, SO NO NEED FOR ONE)

    Google Übersetzer

    ok first off delete that spam entry on top of me. we know you want to drive us from the london airport to the moon - great - if i was the forum owner here that website would get a letter from my lawyer for spamming my forum.

    i read this thread and ima80baby must be one of the most annoying stupid trolls i have ever come across in a forum.

    stop talking about stuff you do not understand and just keep letting your dad buy you your iphone 3gs and some other toys and shut up.

    i will break it down for you:

    TOM TOM KIT HAS A GPS RECEIVER BUILT IN - GPS = GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM - THIS GIVES YOU YOUR POSITION BY SATELLITES (THOSE THINGS IN THE SKY - YOU KNOW?!) NO NEED TO HAVE INTERNET BY WIFI (LMAO) AND NO NEED FOR EDGE, 3G OR UMTS

    WHY THE TOM TOM KIT HAS A GPS BUILT IN, WHEN YOUR DAD ALREADY BOUGHT YOU YOUR IPHONE 3GS WITH GPS IN IT?! BECAUSE IT IS MORE POWERFUL SO NAVIGATION WILL WORK BETTER - BUT YOU WON'T NEED THIS TO GO TO TOYSRUS ANYWAY - DON'T WORRY YOUR DAD WILL DRIVE YOU THERE.

    IPOD TOUCH 1G AND 2G - NO GPS BUILT IN
    TOM TOM APP DOES WORK BUT ONLY WITH TOM TOM KIT (SPECIAL EDITION FOR IPOD)
    TOM TOM KIT DOES WORK

    IPHONE 2G - NO GPS BUILT IN
    TOM TOM APP DOES WORK BUT ONLY WITH TOM TOM KIT
    TOM TOM KIT DOES WORK

    IPHONE 3G - GPS BUILT IN
    TOM TOM APP DOES WORK
    TOM TOM KIT DOES WORK

    IPHONE 3GS - GPS BUILT IN
    TOM TOM APP DOES WORK
    TOM TOM KIT DOES WORK

    THANK YOU FOR EXTENDING THIS THREAD AND MAKING PEOPLE WITH KNOWLEDGE LAUGH AT YOUR PETTY ATTEMPTS TO SEEM INTELLIGENT.
