TomTom HD in US - FCC Site has SIM Card Power Plug
The FCC has a TomTom 12V power outlet on their site that appears to be related to their recent TomTom HD announcement for Europe; that has me thinking that they are making concrete plans to bring the TomTom HD to the US; soon.
The power outlet has a SIM card input that may allow you to obtain traffic (and maybe other) information from the mobile phone networks directly to your TomTom. This would leapfrog the current traffic offerings that travel across the FM airwaves.
With the traffic HD capability loaded onto the 12V plug hardware, and that hardware going into a mini-USB plug, one has to think that this may be a future traffic option on many current TomTom GPS units. Could this testing be the reason why TomTom is looking for Beta Testers who have their own TomTom units? Let’s hope so. Have you applied yet?
