Apple Store now selling the TomTom iPhone kit

Apple Store now selling the TomTom iPhone kit
After much delay, you can now find the TomTom iPhone car kit on sale through the Apple Store. The app has been available to iPhone users for since August, but the car kit that was expected to launch was pushed backed. The kit itself would increase the the iPhone's own GPS positioning system – making it more accurate. If you've been waiting for this one, just expect to dish out some serious cash to grab yours online – it's going for $119.95 and does not come with the TomTom app itself. Of course that'll set you another $100 if you haven't downloaded it yet from the App Store. Fortunately shipping will be free with the purchase of the kit, but expect delivery to range somewhere around two to three weeks. If you prefer having an all-in-one gadget, then consider getting this car kit as opposed to a standalone GPS unit.

What an epic fail product, I'm not going to buy it as I found a better solution for myself. i.e. A Kensington car cradle cost only $25USD + A DLO (A division of Philips) car charger cost $10USD from Ebay total = 35USD I mean WTF $120 USD? Are you kidding me? And a bonus for the Kensington Car cradle as I can have my iPhone fit on the car cradle no problem in a case unlike TomTom which you iPhone have to go naked, I mean rough users probably will be annoyed to take off the case and put it back on.

Uh... What are you talking about? It's only $19.99 difference. Your $35.00 solution does not give you the US/CAN TomTom app as well. So if you bought seperately you paid $99.95 for the app and another $35 on your cradle situation. Your cost $135. Tom Tom app with Iphone cradle system $120

Yeah dude...RTFA. This thing is going to cost you $220 for everything. But here's my question, what's wrong with the GPS built into the phone? My iPhone, when running Google Maps, AT&T Navigator, and now Navigon, has never been inaccurate as long as I was picking up a GPS signal and not the cell tower triangulation. I can get a regular dash mount and save some money.

Will this dock work for the Ipod touch 2gen? I've heard many people say no.
