Following the release of its smartphone hands-free car kit, TomTom is previewing its new navigation app for Android handsets at Teutonic trade show IFA. When it arrives in October, it'll offer navigation, traffic and IQ routes to tempt users away from Google's bundled navigation applications and onto the company's paid service. The terse teaser is bundled after the break, but until the GPS maven opens up about its new platform, we'll just have to be patient.
TomTom is busting out a pair of new smartphone cradles to ensure your handset sits snugly on the windshield of your whip. The Hands Free Car Kit is available in both iPhone or microUSB (for all other smartphones) versions and comes with a built-in two watt speaker, extendable microphone and fast charging. Both editions are available for £80 ($125), while an iPhone-specific bundle that comes with the company's navigation app will set you back £130 ($204).
