I’m not saying that there’s no longer a market for dedicated in-car GPS receivers. Some people will always favor a dedicated device to a convergence device. It’s the same reason you see people walking around with an iPhone but still using a compact camera to take photos.
Problem is, with iOS 6, Apple will put an in-car GPS receiver into the hands of millions of people, and that is going to have a very serious effect on the in-car GPS market. In some ways, TomTom has been fortunate, and maneuvered itself into an advantageous position by licensing maps to Apple, but it’s unlikely that this will offset the negative effect from lost hardware, map upgrade and app sales.
A year from now the in-car GPS landscape is likely to be a very different place.
<Yeah, we all love to use our phone as a GPS douche!!!!>
Yep. We do.
whatever you can do on iOS you can RUN ON A BLACKBERRY!!! LOL..
you're just making the case stronger for buying RIMM here bro..
RIM will be just fine. All they need to do is rename BB10 to BB20 and this will buy them at least another 8 months. If the natives get restless they can put out another youtube video of features that never will make it to market .
<Tom Tom is an inferior GPS. Unless AAPL fixes all its bugs, it still wont be better than the GARMINS.>
Apple's 3D Mapping software with Fly By + TomTom's data = Revolutionary New Experience.
Game Over for RIM before they even sat down to play.
