TomTom has finally launched its navigation application for the iPhone 3G and 3GS via the Apple store.
Furthermore, the TomTom app for iPhone comes with an extensive safety camera database covering speed and red light cameras across Australia. This means drivers are informed ahead of time about any safety cameras on their route, encouraging road safety, while saving money on fines at the same time.
Additional TomTom app for iPhone features include: navigation software including fast route planning and clear voice instructions, automatic re-routing if a turn is missed, route demo or map of route when trip planning, and choice of the latest maps for Australia, New Zealand, USA and Canada or Western Europe.
It also comes with multi-touch gestures such as tap, swipe, pinch and zoom to operate the application and zoom in and out of the map, navigation to contacts in address book, and points-of-interest search and call capabilities from iPhone.
TomTom’s Managing Director, Corinne Vigreux said, “With TomTom for iPhone, millions of iPhone users can now benefit from the same easy-to-use and intuitive interface, turn-by-turn spoken navigation and unique routing technology that our 30 million portable navigation device users rely on every day. As the world’s leading provider of navigation solutions and digital maps, TomTom is the most natural fit for an advanced navigation application on the iPhone.”
The TomTom car kit for iPhone – a complementary mounting solution for secure docking, enhanced navigation and hands-free calling, will be available later this year.
When used together, this unique and comprehensive package delivers an optimised, state-of-the-art solution for in-car, turn-by-turn navigation for iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS users. The TomTom app and car kit for iPhone can also be used independently.
The TomTom app for iPhone for the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS is available immediately from the Apple App Store for $99.99.
