One of the big improvements of the iPhone 3G and 3GS compared to the original iPhone was the inclusion of GPS allowing for navigation capabilities in the device. The problem is that the iPhone GPS receiver is prone to having issues at times if you are near large trees or tall buildings.
TomTom has announced that its Car Kit for iPhone is now available for users to purchase in Europe. The kit includes a secure mount dock that charges and holds the iPhone while it works as a PND. The dock allows the iPhone to be in portrait or landscape mode.
The kit has its own GPS receiver for more accuracy and less dropouts. The kit also has a built-in speaker to make hearing directions easier while driving. Handsfree calls are featured as well. The kit is available now for 99,99 euro.
