TomTom’s iPhone car kit has passed through the FCC in the United States, hopefully confirming that the long-awaited hardware will join the TomTom iPhone application software that appeared in the App Store across the globe last week.
Along with the filing is a few details we didn’t know about before, including the type of GPS chip which will be built into the car kit for enhanced iPhone GPS reception. The maker of the chip is SiRF and one of its SiRFStar variants will be used. Not really a big surprise. You can also check out the user manual and a whole bunch of test results while you’re waiting for an official release.
