A few weeks back we posted a pricing leak by Handtec for TomTom's satnav app for iPhone including mount kit for £113.85 ($193.89 US) via pre-order. The optional iPhone car mount cradle uses a mounted antenna for “enhanced GPS performance”, it also charges your iPhone, provides an amplified speaker for turn-by-turn instructions and lets you dial hands-free. The mount enables an easy flip to view both horizontal and landscape orientations. The idea of having this level of navigation on iPhone really stimulates my geeky parts.
The application includes TomTom's IQ Routes that will always calculate the smartest, most efficient route to your destination any time of day. TomTom suggests watching their Products/Accessories page for availability of their iPhone car mount kit expected to launch soon.
