Navigon's car cradle for the iPhone

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.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

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.
