TomTom app updated to support iPod touch, first-gen iPhone
Version 1.2 was submitted on Nov. 12 and was released Wednesday. The new version contains updates to maps and IQ Routes. Added features include advanced lane guidance, text-to-speech, integrated iPod player support, and support for the iPod Touch and first-generation iPhone.
The TomTom app was released in August and is available from the App Store for $99.99 USD.
In order to successfully use the app on the newly supported Touch and 1st-gen iPhones, TomTom's car kit is required. This is due to the fact that both devices lack an integrated GPS receiver.
TomTom's car kit is a cradle which contains a GPS module, integrated speaker, charger, and line out. It is not required when the TomTom app is paired with the iPhone 3G and 3GS. The kit retails for USD $119.95.
