TomTom Car Kit to Be Compatible With iPod Touch and Other GPS iPhone Applications?

In the wake of the release of TomTom iPhone GPS navigation applications in numerous countries, Mac4Ever spoke [Google translation] with TomTom public relations manager Yann Lafargue and received clarification that the forthcoming companion car kit will be compatible with the iPod touch and will also support GPS navigation applications by other companies.

"It will work with the iPod touch and will also work with third-party GPS applications."

Lafarque is unable to provide information on when the car kit will be released, although posters to TomTom's official Twitter account have confirmed the announcement made at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference that it is scheduled to ship "later this summer" with additional specs and pricing coming closer to the kit's release.
