Navigon's car cradle for the iPhone
Launching "in October", the Navigon car kit for iPhone is designed to be used in tandem with Navigon's MobileNavigator for iPhone, a dedicated turn-by-turn GPS app available through Apple's App Store.
Navigon has not unveiled pricing or an official launch date, aside from the announcement on Navigon's Facebook page accompanied by a press image. The Facebook post read: "NAVIGON is launching a car kit for the iPhone including a car holder and charger cable to make an ideal positioning for adequate navigation possible."
The Navigon iPhone car cradle is just a window mount and will not include a chip to enhance GPS reception, nor will it mount iPhones with a case. Rival GPS manufacturer TomTom has already announced it plans to launch a car kit for the iPhone that will include a chip to enhance the iPhone's ability to pick up a GPS signal.
