TomTom for iPhone

A UK retailer has revealed the local price for the long-awaited TomTom for iPhone navigation system – £99 ($168) excluding UK sales tax.

TomTom hasn’t yet revealed pricing for the system, promising only to ship the iPhone satnav “this summer” – and there’s scant weeks until summer’s end.

UK retailer Handtec prematurely listed the system on its site a month ago and has yet to remove it – for whatever that’s worth. The system includes a windscreen mount, iPhone charger, amplified speakers, a hands-free kit and a GPS dongle.

The TomTom solution combines two new TomTom products: The TomTom navigation application for iPhone; an Apple version of TomTom’s award-winning turn-by-turn navigation software, including IQ Routes and latest maps from Tele Atlas; The TomTom car kit for iPhone; a specially developed car kit for secure docking, enhanced GPS performance, clear voice instructions, hands-free calling and in-car charging.
