The TomTom iPhone Car Kit (October 2009) is a device that turns an Apple device — iPhone 3G/3Gs or iPod Touch — into a fully functioning TomTom navigation system. It allows the iPhone/iPod to be suction-cupped onto a windshield and includes a speaker plus an integrated secondary GPS receiver for increased signal reception. Using it requires purchasing the TomTom Navigation App, which itself was released in August 2009 and retails for $99.99. Keep in mind that a TomTom automobile GPS head unit is required as well. A few extra features are included as well: Bluetooth for hands-free calling, volume controls, a microphone, and an audio jack for using your vehicle's audio system.
