So all of that talk of TomTom secretly developing iPhone GPS software followed by the revelation of Apple restrictions on such development, has apparently been blown a bit out of proportion. An anonymous TomTom source explained everything to BoingBoing Gadgets.

TomTom told BBG that the GPS company isn't even working on anything for the iPhone, at least not right now. So where did the initial Reuters report come from? It could have been an overzealous developer simply speculating, or somebody just pulling the chain of the collective automotive tech world. Or the anonymous source could just be trying to throw everyone off the trail. Time will tell. [BBG]
