Amsterdam,
The Netherlands -TomTom officially set the price for its much-anticipated iPhone
car kit due in October at $119.

The
kit
, to be sold separately from the TomTom iPhone app, is basically a
portable navigation device (PND) without the screen, said TomTom USA
president Jocelyn Vigreux.

First announced earlier this year, the kit includes a GPS chip to improve the GPS
reception of the iPhone, making the iPhone-plus-TomTom GPS
app more closely match the experience of a PND.  It will also charge the iPhone, provide a
speaker and a Bluetooth receiver, as well as provide a mounting assembly for
the iPhone on the dash or windshield.

TomTom's turn-by-turn iPhone app debuted in August on Apple's App
Store for $99.
