    TomTom isn't big in the States. Might get more posts later.

    I've got one, haven't tried it yet though.

    I'm guessing it's not gonna work. Seems like the iPhone is (stupidly) locked down to headsets only over BT.

    I had a Tomtom before. Best GPS navigation system hands down.

    It should work. I have handfree built into my car and it works with my iPhone. It is basically the same principle as the TomTom.

    What did you compare it with? From using TomTom, iGuidance, and OnCourse I had the most problems with TomTom. Maps are very outdated.

    I guess i was referring more to the data-based features such as weather, traffic, etc.

    what do u mean? tomtom is huge in the states, maybe not as big as in europe. but still big



    actually it works with alot of the factory handsfree systems that come with cars...so it might. you should try it out and let me know ;)

    Handsfree works fine with my TomTom GO 910, but data does not.

    I think you'll find that's typical when using a TomTom with any phone that isn't made by Motorola, Sony-Ericsson, or Nokia.
