NEW! TomTom car kit for iPhone integration

~ Navigating with TomTom for iPhone just got even easier with the integrated car kit ~

London, 19 February 2010 – TomTom today transforms in-car iPhone navigation with its latest car kit for iPhone. Designed to securely integrate iPhone into your car, this is the must-have accessory for fans of iPhone and TomTom for iPhone.

The original TomTom car kit for iPhone has a windscreen mount. The new car kit for iPhone, however, screws onto a vehicle-specific ProClip mount that is fixed on the driver’s dashboard. This lets drivers choose a permanent location that works best for them, with no need to reposition it for each journey.

“This car kit for iPhone is designed with demanding drivers in mind,” explains Tom Murray, vice president of market development. “It offers the fastest, neatest way to secure iPhone into a car. Plus they get all the features of the original TomTom car kit for iPhone, for the best in-car experience.”

The new car kit broadens the TomTom for iPhone range, with features that further improve the in-car navigation experience for iPhone users. They include a GPS booster for uninterrupted navigation – even in built-up areas. The built-in microphone allows drivers to make and answer phone calls safely while driving, whilst an integrated speaker ensures navigation instructions are always clear. These features are vital to help busy drivers get to the right place safely.

An in-car charger keeps the driver’s iPhone battery topped up while on the go – essential for staying in touch with clients and colleagues. For an even neater integration, drivers can contact their garage for a direct power connection to their car battery.

Time to unwind? The kit also comes with an audio out connector that lets drivers play their favourite music over their car stereo*. It even fades music out when receiving phone calls or navigation instructions.

Pricing and availability
The ProClip car kit for iPhone is available in pre-order as of today via www.tomtom.com and www.tomtom-proclip.com with a recommended price of £99.99.

Drivers can also purchase their vehicle-specific ProClip mount from www.tomtom-proclip.com.
