TomTom for iPhone is finally here, no word of the car stand

17 August, 2009

Today TomTom has finally released their voice guided turn-by-turn SatNav app for the iPhone. The app was the only featured SatNav software at the presentation of the iPhone OS 3.0, but it's the last to arrive.

TomTom for iPhone is available in four regional packages - New Zealand (94.99 US dollars), U.S & Canada (99.99 US dollars), Australia (79.99 Australian dollars) and TomTom Western Europe (139.99 US dollars). Yeah, life in iEurope is expensive, we know!

Unfortunately, the TomTom press release doesn't say a word about the Car Kit bundle, which includes a charging car stand for the iPhone. Let's remind you that it was recently spotted in an online store at a pre-order price of about 200 US dollars.

So, Navigon were first to release their SatNav software called Mobile Navigator, then it was Sygic's turn followed by iGO MyWay 2009 and finally TomTom rounded up the expensive SatNav solutions offered by the majors. Perhaps Garmin will jump on the bandwagon as well, but we are yet to hear about that really.
