The TomTom car kit for the iPod touch is exactly what it sounds like: a mounting kit for having your iPod touch in the car. The EasyPort dashboard mount charges your iPod touch while you drive, and also has a built-in GPS receiver, meaning your iPod touch becomes a mobile navigation device. This GPS receiver has built-in voice instructions, so that you will never miss where you are going. With the TomTom car kit's line out connector, you can play music from your iPod touch. The music will fade when instructions are being spoken by the GPS. You can rotate the widescreen any way you want, for best route visualization. When you want to change vehicles or take the TomTom car kit for the iPod touch with you, it folds flat and is compact.
