TomTom Developer API
It was almost exactly one year ago when I speculated it was time for one of the GPS companies to release a GPS App Store. Looks like I was thinking in the right direction as TomTom said today they are indeed going to open up a developer API.
Few details are known right now other than this WSJ article but with the proliferation of “connected” PNDs the timing is right. Also note that the new TomTom LIVE 1000 announced today for Europe features a WebKit based browser interface– making it ripe for developers to build webapps for PNDs. With technologies like HTML5 offering the ability to view a user’s location (with permission, of course) there are fantastic possibilities for apps on PNDs.
