TomTom Launches Hands-Free Car Kit for Smartphones

If you aren't a fan of bluetooth headsets or pulling over to take your phone calls, TomTom's new smartphone cradle may be exactly what you need. Unlike generic car docks, TomTom's new hands-free kit features an advanced noise and echo cancellation system that lets you drive and talk with perfect clarity. 

The hands-free kit is available with either an iPhone compatible 30-pin port or an Android compatible microUSB connector. In addition to the background noise reduction, the mount also allows you to make calls via integrated voice recognition and even lets you pair two phones at a time with its Bluetooth functionality.

Equipped with a 2-watt speaker and an extendable microphone, TomTom hopes to make talking and driving both a safer and more pleasant experience. The TomTom Hands-Free Car Kit is available in select retail stores and from the TomTom website for £79.95 (~$125). In addition, the TomTom kit with the Western EU navigation app is priced at £129 ($204).

    Apple will probably sue TomTom for having an Android phone in this commercial.

    Give TomTom credit... the car GPS industry is pretty much dead. So they change to accessories for its replacement.

  • @otacon: limited market =/= no market. Not everyone has a new car, and like you said even in 2008 only half had the option. There's plenty of customers for this to make a profit, which is all that matters. You don't have to buy it if you don't need it.

    one thing bad about these portable gps systems are that they totally lag when you are in big cities like nyc.
