GPS manufacturer Navigon has used social-networking site Facebook to announce it will launch a dedicated iPhone car cradle.

Launching "in October", the Navigon car kit for iPhone is designed to be used in tandem with Navigon's MobileNavigator for iPhone, a dedicated turn-by-turn GPS app available through Apple's App Store.

Navigon has not unveiled pricing or an official launch date, aside from the announcement on Navigon's Facebook page accompanied by a press image. The Facebook post read: "NAVIGON is launching a car kit for the iPhone including a car holder and charger cable to make an ideal positioning for adequate navigation possible."

The Navigon iPhone car cradle is just a window mount and will not include a chip to enhance GPS reception, nor will it mount iPhones with a case. Rival GPS manufacturer TomTom has already announced it plans to launch a car kit for the iPhone that will include a chip to enhance the iPhone's ability to pick up a GPS signal.

Navigon, TomTom and Sygic currently offer iPhone apps that provide turn-by-turn navigation using the iPhone's built-in GPS receiver.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
