Tom Tom Car Kit Pricing Details...
NaviGadget.com has an article stating a website in Europe is taking pre-orders for the Tom Tom speaker car kit. Nice article to check out, which lists some of the features for the car kit as well.
TomTom for iPhone + car kit -- NaviGadget
Do you think it's too expensive?

Yes, I thought the price was pretty good considering you pay over $200 sometimes for a Tom Tom. I really like the car kit, listen to music, get your turn by turn gps, charges your iPhone, and you can still receive & make calls. Awesome in my book.

What I really hope Apple starts to do is give us a demo version of an app to try. Limit the app to 1-3 day trial version. The Lite apps work as well but it would be nice to have full access to an app for 1 day to give it a test run. I don't mind spending the $$$ on more quality apps, but I don't want to spend $200 bucks & it sucks!

I agree with the majority that this is a sweet price. What would make the price even sweeter is the ability to install the software multiple iPhones, like all other apps. I would reckon that they will have some sort of making it one app to one iPhone. Accuracy and performance would be another selling point. Otherwise, there's the potential of it being a $200 car mount.

If we pay $200 for the hardware, will Tom Tom include application updates for many many years?
The reason we buy new PND's ever 2-3 years id to get new features, improved UI, and updated maps. How much of that is included with this purchase?
That will play a big role in whether to buy this or a Garmin PND.

the only thing I don't have is an aux port dammit. but I suppose if I get some sort of external speaker for it to plug into that would be okay.
but like a few have said above.
$200 may seem steep to some, but you are getting the software and a cradle that will do navigation, charging and hands free calling as well.

I do not see this selling not thru the App store... Do you really think Apple would push this at the developers conference if it was a free app having the service sold via an outsource payment system... This is going to be one of Apples premium $100 plus apps... Via the App they can even sell the carkit and mail it to you.
