TomTom now supports iPod Touch and iPhone 2G


TomTom navigation application updated to version 1.2. Added features include updates to maps and IQ Routes, advanced lane guidance, text-to-speech, integrated iPod player support and support for the iPod Touch and first-generation iPhone 2G.

To use the app on iPod Touch and iPhone 2G, 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 cost for the kit without the app is $119.95.

Full list of what's new in 1.2:

  • Improved search and route summary screens
  • Updated map from v8.30 to v8.35
  • Updated points of interest database
  • Updated IQ Routes database with millions of new measurements
  • Added Advanced Lane Guidance in both portrait and landscape mode
  • Added Text-to-speech in English US, English UK, English Australia, French Canada, Spanish Latin America
  • Added Help Me! emergency menu
  • Added iPod player support
  • Added support for original iPhone and iPod touch (all models)
