Well designed and it works perfectly with iPhone 4S,
This review is from: TomTom Car Kit for iPhone (Compatible with iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4) (discontinued by manufacturer) (Wireless Phone Accessory)
I was a bit skeptical about a car kit for my new iPhone 4S, Specifically: Would it drop off the windscreen? Would I be able to hear it? Would it be too fiddly to use?
As it turns out, it performed perfectly. It is well designed and a cinch to install.
The combination is almost as good as a dedicated TomTom device, the down sides being that having a heavy phone suckered onto an inverted glass surface is always going to be a bit precarious.
I am using TomTom's own satnav software, so did not see any warnings about 'App not installed' that other reviewers mention.
On the plus side, the volume and clarity of the audio instructions were great - the software takes care of fading out the music.
I still have to test the audio out socket with the in-car radio.
The cradle's built in GPS aerial is a sure improvement over the iPhone's.
So why not five stars? Well the price for a start compared with a stand alone unit it is a bit much.
Also, I keep my iPhone in a protective case, which needs to be removed when fitting it into the cradle.
My main criticism would be of the TomTom software, which is a lot more fiddly on the iPhone, than it is on a dedicated device.
