    Hey guys I was at the apple store here in my city. Shocking they made one in a mall.... Any way. When I was there. They hade the TOM TOM kit for iphone but didnt say for ipod touch. So my question is does that car kit also work on the ipod touch? Lets say my ipod touch 3gen? I was tempted to buy it but was like ehhh.

    sorry, but im pretty sure it wont work with an ipod touch

    It functions through the built in GPS which is only in the iphone, not in an ipod touch

    You can probably look at maps and get directions from one place to another and that but it won't be able to tell you your location accurately.

    I am nearly certain you can purchase a unit from TomTom that will work with your IPT. If memory serves, it requires a car kit that contains the GPS receiver.

    Here is the facts:

    1. The one you were looking at was the iPhone version.

    2. There IS an iPod touch version which has a GPS chip built into the stand but to use it you need the official TOM TOM app from the AppStore, but tbh, looking at the price of the stand + the app, you might as well just buy a TOM TOM for a cheaper price.

    Hope this helps

    I see your point. Just wish they didnt charge for the app..

  8. Well there are ways around the price of the app.....
    Which will cut the cost down to only $99 USD.

    But of course I can't discuss it further.... :S

    Jailbreaking isnt an option for me... Not onnly that I dont have a huge need to jailbreak... So that would be out of the option.

    Hi guys,

    I think you're referring to this device from Tom Tom.

    http://www.tomtom.com/products/product.php?ID=1045&Lid=4&Category=2

    Can someone advice me on the following qn I have:
    1. Can I download my own map? Or must I purchase the additional maps that I need?
    2. If I read the advert correctly, this device comes with the TomTom app right? Ie paying USD99.95 gets me the device and the app.
    3. Is it possible to use GMDL with this GPS device?
