GPS manufacturer TomTom will release a dedicated app and car kit for the iPhone that turns the smartphone into a fully fledged navigation unit.

Speaking during Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco, TomTom co-founder Peter-Frans Pauwels demonstrated using TomTom’s navigation software with a specially designed car kit for the iPhone 3G.

Although it hasn't been confirmed, the TomTom car kit for iPhone should also work with the recently launched iPhone 3G S.

TomTom hasn't revealed an Australian launch date or pricing details. TomTom marketing manager Chris Kearney was tight lipped about the new iPhone kit, saying "unfortunately we can't provide any further details at this stage".

The TomTom for iPhone kit consists of two products: an Apple-specific version of TomTom’s turn-by-turn navigation software that will be downloadable from the App Store and the car kit for docking the iPhone while driving.

It is not yet known if the TomTom app will work without the car kit, nor how it will handle incoming phone calls during turn-by-turn navigation.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
