TomTom turn by turn navigation coming to iPhone

Turn by Turn navigation is finally coming to the iPhone. Announced at Apple's WWDC Tom Tom will be bringing the service to the device. Many have asked for such a service as the iPhone is the perfect platform for the software and Tom Tom is set to deliver on that front.

Also along with Tom Tom Apple will be allowing users to add other turn by turn type applications. Google maps will now be allowed to be embedded into applications and it will give you all of the same functionality that the stand alone app has. What developers will come up with is only a guess but it should allow for many new and more useful applications.

Unknown at this point is the pricing for the Tom Tom app but it will be available sometime this summer. Also, while not discussed, it may be possible to for live traffic to be sent to the phone as it does have an internet connection but expect a fee to be charged.
