ProClip USA (http://www.proclipusa.com) has announced that the US$119.95 TomTom car kit for iPhone is now available, along with a variety of ProClip mounts for mounting your car kit to your car, truck or SUV dashboard or console.
Unlike the original TomTom car kit for iPhone, which has a windshield mount, this new car kit screws onto a vehicle-specific ProClip mount. This lets drivers choose a convenient, permanent location, for their iPhone.
The new car kit broadens the TomTom for iPhone range and improves the in-car navigation experience for iPhone users with a GPS booster for uninterrupted navigation -- even in built-up areas, according to Tom Murray, vice president of market development for TomTom. The built-in microphone allows drivers to make and answer phone calls while the integrated speaker ensures navigation instructions are always clear, he adds.
An in-car charger keeps the iPhone battery charged; a car electronics professional can provide a direct power connection to the car battery. The kit’s audio out connector lets drivers play music over their car stereo and fades music out when receiving calls or navigation instructions.
