In pictures: TomTom for iPhone

We take a look at the first pictures of TomTom's long-awaited iPhone GPS application

TomTom for iPhone consists of two parts — the TomTom for iPhone software app, which will be downloadable from the iPhone store, and TomTom's dedicated iPhone cradle, providing a safe mounting system in the car. It is not yet confirmed whether the TomTom for iPhone app will work without the cradle.

Last week, Sygic announced the first turn-by-turn navigation app for the iPhone, while Navigon has also unveiled its plans for an iPhone application due for release before the end of the year. But the big news is from TomTom, with the navigation giant announcing a TomTom for iPhone app — due for release in the coming months. iPhone owners have been waiting a long time for fully fledged GPS and thankfully, full turn-by-turn navigation has just arrived.

NAVIGON already launched their full software last week and has been in the Nr.1 spot of all Paid-apps since the first day. Their US/Canada version is also expected to be launched during the weekend.
Behind Garmin, NAVIGON is the second strongest worldwide competitor for TomTom and looks like the won this round with Apple now even placing NAVIGON on their landing-pages.

Stop saying things like "has finally arrived" when it's not here yet. Companies announce intentions for software all the time and don't get around to releasing them at times for darn near a year or more. Heck I'm still waiting for Duke Nukem Forever: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_Nukem_Forever

Your comments toward the end of the article, "...full turn-by-turn navigation has just arrived."

I can't believe its taking TOMTOM this long. There is no excuse for ATT, Navigon, and Kivio to beat them to market. They had their app running a year ago. The only way I'll consider TOMTOM's app is if it saves me money.

The excuse about making sure its right the first time is ridiculous. No software application has ever been perfect at release...and the iphone provides the mechanism for updates. What is probably taking so long is the brand new feature of controlling their add-on dock. I have to say after using my phone with att's app, I'm not sure what value that tomtom dock really provides. I've had a powering cradle with audio out in my car for years. I don't need to buy another one. The iphone's built in antenna is fine on its own.

I have GPS in my car, that requires update CD's every year. ATT's application already cuts that cost in half.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
