TomTom Beats Apple To The GPS-On-iPhone Punch

Well, we'll be damned, it seems all of the talk about GPS on the iPhone has been upstaged by, uh, GPS on the iPhone. TomTom has announced that its navigation software for the iPhone is ready to roll.

There aren't currently a lot of details regarding what version of the iPhone the TomTom software supports, when/how it will be available and at what price, but there's a good chance that a TomTom navigation interface on the iPhone could trump the Google Maps mash-up that Apple is looking to offer with the 3G iPhone. Cue the death march of the traditional GPS navigation unit. [Reuters via Giz]
