TomTom releases new iPhone, Android hands-free car kits

TomTom has offered up two new hands-free car kits, one for the iPhone and the other for Android smartphones. The iPhone version integrates the 30-pin adapter, while the Android version includes a microUSB charging cable to allowing it to accommodate a wide range of devices. TomTom says it has built-in a noise and echo cancellation function over a 2-watt speaker to boost call clarity when driving.

The Android version has been designed to be flexible in the way it holds devices so a specific model is not necessary, whereas the iPhone version will accommodate the iPhone 3GS, the iPhone 4 and 4S. Both versions will also hold devices whether they are kept in a case, or without. Another useful feature is the addition of a mic extension cord that allows users to position it more closely to the driver, making it easier to hear them on the other end of the line.

TomTom says that when paired over Bluetooth, users can use voice recognition functionality to navigate and make calls without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. The new hands-free kits are coming soon to North America for around $100.
