With the purchase of this iPod Touch car kit you also get the NavAtlas U.S. & Canada Navigation app that works with the GPS Cradle. The latest US and Canada maps from Navteq are built-in, so there is no need to have your iPod touch Wi-Fi connection ON. You get turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions, navigation directly to an address stored in Contacts on the iPod, and more. A high-sensitivity GPS receiver is built directly into the Cradle (not the windshield mount), giving you GPS capabilities wherever you go.

When in a car, you can also easily connect the Cradle to your car stereo using the 3.5 mm audio out on the car windshield mount and play your music and navigation voice prompts through your car speakers.

Another very good feature with the cradle is that it allows you to play music on your iPod while in navigation mode. The music is automatically muted when directions are being spoken, and the music resumes afterwards.
