TomTom Car Kit Release Pushed Back to October

TomTom's FAQ for its iPhone navigation app now notes that the anxiously-awaited Car Kit will not be released until October:

The TomTom car kit availability was originally planned for this summer. But we have decided to take some extra weeks in order to deliver the highest quality on this innovative product. So, the car kit will become available this October on www.tomtom.com.


This update to the FAQ comes surprisingly close to the kit's run through the FCC for approval just last week. The FCC's site shows internal and external photos of the car kit along with the user guide.

According to previous reports, the Car Kit's GPS capability will allow it to work with the iPod touch and other 3rd-party GPS applications. No information has been released yet on the kit's final pricing.
