TomTom Car Kit Dock Hits the FCC

Has some surprisingly impressive features

| Technology in Vehicles News | Posted: Aug 28, 2009 5:37 pm

One thing that the iPhone has always lacked (well one of the things) is a good turn-by-turn GPS system. Well that was all fixed with the launch of TomTom for iPhone.

 

The problem is, what do you do with is when you are in the car? I paid the $100 for this application and I end up sticking it in the ashtray in my truck. Of course I have never smoked so that is not too big of a deal but it is low on my console so I have to look down all the time.

 

TomTom originally said there would be a dock for this that would not only allow for charging but also for improved GPS reception and other features. The problem is, no one knows where this dock really is.

 

Well until today. It has popped up at the FCC for approval and shows off some of the new and cool features it will have.
