GPS turn-by-turn apps war - TomTom for iPhone
GPS turn-by-turn apps war - TomTom for iPhone

Brussels // iPhonetunes // // TomTom has made navigation available for your iPhone 3G. All you need is:

  * the TomTom app including the latest maps (coming soon to the iTunes App Store).

  * the TomTom car kit that offers secure docking, enhanced GPS performance, clear voice instructions and hands-free calling, while charging your iPhone at the same time.

There are five versions:

- TomTom Western Europe
- TomTom Benelux
- TomTom USA & Canada
- Tomtom Australia
- TomTom New Zealand

Some features:

  * Tap and go: Tap the multi-touch screen to choose your starting point and destination. Scroll through the menu, or pinch to zoom in and out on a map.
  * Meet up with friend: Find an entry in your iPhone contacts list, and the TomTom app will find the way there.
  * Find a place to eat: Choose a restaurant, call to reserve your table, then follow the directions.
  * The smartest routes: TomTom IQ Routes systen claims to calculate the smartest, most efficient route based on the collective experience of millions of drivers.

We are really curious that it can beat the nice realistic Post Sign info from Navigon or the 3D landmarks form iGO, not even to speak about the many configurable options from Sygic.
I just bought the Europe version and will publish a compare article with Navigon, Sygic and iGO ASAP.
