TomTom iPhone car kit gets ProClip option

TomTom is offering a new option with its iPhone car kit with the availability of a ProClip mount just announced.

The original TomTom car kit for iPhone has a windscreen mount, the new car kit for iPhone, however, screws onto a vehicle-specific ProClip mount that is fixed on the driver's dashboard.

"This lets drivers choose a permanent location that works best for them, with no need to reposition it for each journey", says TomTom, stating that the ProClip option is designed for "demanding drivers".

As with the original, the new car kit gets a GPS booster, and a built-in microphone so users can make and answer phone calls while driving. There's also an audio out connector that lets drivers play their music over their car stereo.

The ProClip car kit for iPhone is available in pre-order as of today at www.tomtom-proclip.com priced at £99.99.
