Would You Pay $US200 For TomTom's iPhone Car Kit?

We've been waiting for the supposed Summer launch of TomTom's turn-by-turn iPhone app and car kit ever since we saw it at WWDC. Now one UK retailer looks to be taking pre-orders for £113.85 (about $US195).

I wouldn't take Handtec's pricing as gospel—they seem to have jumped the gun after all—but it does give some insight into what we might expect.

The listed price is a little higher than basic stand alone units cost, but includes the iPhone app itself, along with the GPS-boosting car accessory—complete with windscreen mount, in-car charger, speakers, and hands-free rig. And as we've mentioned in the past, it's not inconceivable that the kit will also support the iPod Touch.

Of course, it still remains to be seen if TomTom will bleed users dry with a monthly subscription, or go the one off charge route that CoPilot Live took in the UK. [Handtec via Daniweb via Techmeme]
