Forum member The Samurai has managed to obtain the TomTom GPS car kit for iPhone from the Apple retail store in Glasgow, Scotland. After a brief appearance in several European Apple online stores that generated some confusion over what was included with the kit, the car kit reappeared late last week with shipping scheduled for 1-3 weeks. Despite the shipping date having slipped to 3-4 weeks since that time, the kits are now evidently beginning to appear in Apple retail stores.
The Samurai has posted a video of the unboxing of the TomTom car kit:
Also found within the car kit packaging was a paper insert describing a forthcoming free TomTom iPhone application that will allow users to administer some of the technical functions of the car kit without the need for the TomTom navigation iPhone application, which is sold separately. It is possible that this free application will enable the use of third-party GPS applications with the kit, allowing them to take advantage of the kit's built-in GPS receiver and other features.
