Navigon reveals iPhone car cradle on Facebook

A photo of Navigon's iPhone car kit was unveiled on Navigon's official Facebook page.

It holds your iPhone...what else did you expect it to do?

Having released its turn-by-turn navigation software into the iTunes marketplace, Navigon is preparing to release a car kit to supplement the app's in-car usage. A photo of the car kit was unveiled on Navigon's official Facebook page--of all places--but details are sparse at the moment.

The kit will cradle the iPhone with a suction cup mount and will ship with a charging cable to keep your phone juiced while you drive.

Pricing hasn't been released and neither has a hard ship date. However, considering that there's no supplementary technology (such as an integrated GPS chip or speakerphone), this cradle should cost considerably less than TomTom's tech-laden $100 cradle.

Stay tuned for more details as they are revealed.
