For a hefty $100, TomTom delivers 3D GPS navigation accompanied with spoken turn-by-turn directions. We call that hefty because there's a less pricey app carrying the same features â€” CoPilot Live, which costs $35.
If you're willing to throw down even more cash on TomTom, there's an optional car kit equipped with a mounted antenna for better GPS performance. The car mount includes a built-in speaker, an audio output jack and a microphone for use with the iPhone as a Bluetooth speakerphone. Pricing has not yet been announced for this accessory, but earlier rumor reports suggest it should cost somewhere around $90. Gizmodo has confirmed the car kit will work with the iPod Touch, turning it into a full GPS device, whereas before the Touch could only look up directions when in range of a Wi-Fi signal.
Of course, whether TomTom is truly worth $100 depends on its quality of service. We're looking into getting test copies to compare TomTom with CoPilot Live in the near future. We'll keep you posted.
