Because GPS accessories get useful very quickly.
GPS outfit TomTom has introduced the ProClip, its first iPhone peripheral designed to securely integrate into your car.
While the original TomTom car kit for iPhone has a windscreen mount. The new car kit for iPhone, however, screws onto a vehicle-specific ProClip mount that is fixed on the driver’s dashboard.
Per Macworld UK, this lets drivers choose a permanent location with no need to reposition it for each journey insists TomTom.
The ProClip includes a GPS booster, which promises uninterrupted navigation even in built up areas, a built-in microphone for making and taking calls and an integrated speaker to ensure navigation instructions can be heard clearly. An in-car charger meanwhile, keeps the iPhone battery at capacity while driving.
The ProClip mount clips in different places on the dashboard for optimal viewing and access and rotates in landscape and portrait positions.
