CNET News Video: WWDC 2009: TomTom launches navigation app for iPhone

3:08 /

At Apple's WWDC in San Francisco, Peter-Frans Pauwels, CTO of TomTom, shows a new navigation application for the iPhone. The new software combines map data with turn-by-turn navigation. The new app will be available in the summer.

^M00:00:01 [ Music ] ^M00:00:59 >> Good morning everyone. TomTom is very pleased and very proud to bring the very best navigation and the best maps to the iPhone. Using the new feature, an iPhone SEK 3.0, we've worked hard. We've optimized and we've succeeded in delivering real TomTom navigation as a true iPhone experience. I'm going to show you what that looks like. We'll plan a route leaving from where we are right here at Mosconi [assumed spelling] West, as a destination we'll choose contacts from the address book. We'll take the fastest route option. The route is now calculated using TomTom's unique IQ routes technology which uses our enhanced map data and advanced planning algorithms to give you the very best route at the particular time of day. Absolutely unique. Instead of us all going outside to the car, we'll use the built-in demo option to see what the navigation looks like. And off we go; you can clearly see what's ahead and what's going to happen next, so that looks good and it will also make it look even better. And of course it will tell you where to go. >> After 300 yards, bear right, then keep left. >> So building on our wealth of experience in navigation, we've made sure that TomTom's iPhone is really easy to use in the car but you wouldn't want to hold it right in your hand while driving. So, because navigation is all about safety. >> Bear right, then keep left. >> Because navigation is all about safety, we've created an optional accessory--the TomTom Car Kit. ^M00:01:44 [ Audience clapping ] ^M00:01:49 >> Now thank you very much. And it's not just a holder; thanks to the new features of the dock connector, it will do a whole lot for you. There we go to securely dock your iPhone. You can attach it to the windshield by turning this around to the dashboard. You can use it in portrait and of course, in landscape. . Thanks to the accessory framework, we can enhance your GPS signal and that is important. Built-in loudspeaker gives you loud and clear voice instruction so you can keep your eyes out there on the road and the microphone gives you hands-free calling. Yes we'll play your music off of the car stereo as well. Finally, we'll power your iPhone as you drive, so by the time you arrive you're fully charged. ^M00:02:40 [ Audience clapping ] ^M00:02:47 >> The TomTom map and the TomTom Car Kit will be available this summer. We'll release the map through the map store with a range of national and international maps. TomTom Navigational maps, TomTom Car Kit--it's here. TomTom for iPhone. Thank you. ^M00:03:02 [ Audience clapping ] ^M00:03:06
