TomTom iPhone app for iPod Touch – Clarification
Since the TomTom Car Kit started appearing in the Apple Online Store recently, eagle-eyed readers noticed that compatibility was listed for the iPhone 3G and 3Gs, but not the original iPhone (2G) and iPod Touch. This lead to rumors that the kit would not (as in ever) be compatible with the iPod Touch and iPhone 2G. But this didn’t seem quite right so we sought clarification from TomTom. Here it is, direct from TomTom Media Relations.
“While TomTom did make a public announcement that compatibility of the TomTom app for iPhone with the iPod touch is coming soon, we have not publicly announced when that might occur.”
This is in reference to the original TomTom iPhone App press release TomTom sent out on August 17 where they said “Compatibility with the iPod touch and other iPhone models coming soon.”
Other communications I’ve received hint that TomTom is indeed still working on iPod Touch development, and even the original manual for the iPhone app made reference to the iPod Touch which has since been removed.
So I think it is pretty safe to say that the TomTom App and Car Kit will be compatible with the iPod Touch, however not initially as the Car Kit starts shipping out soon.
