TomTom Nav Software Goes to Parrot Asteroid

Parrot this week announced new software partners for its Asteroid market that offers apps to its range of in-car Android devices. TomTom is among these with their navigation software that costs €59.99 for Western Europe or €69.99 for the whole of Europe (priced at $34.99 for U.S. maps, or $49.99 for U.S. and Canada).

NavFree, Waze and iGo (NNG) are the other alternatives for turn-by-turn navigation on this platform.

The Asteroid market currenty has around 40 apps.

Parrot Asteroid range
The “Asteroid“ devices range includes the Asteroid Mini, a 3.2-inch hands-free car kit (€249, $299), the Asteroid Tablet, a 5-inch tablet (€349, $399) and teh Asteroid Smart, a 6.2-inch 2DIN car autoradio (€549, $599).

The Asteroid Mini has however a limited memory, therefore it cannot support navigation software with onboard maps such as TomTom, iGo or NavFree, it only works with Waze.
