With adjustable car mount and device holder designed to maximise stability and provide optimal camera view

Zurich - Switzerland, 16 October 2012 - ROUTE 66, a pioneer in mobile mapping and navigation solutions for handsets and tablets, today released a new range of Panoramic Car Kits tailored for today's leading smartphones. Instead of taking a ‘universal compatibility' approach, which can lead to a loose fit and compromise the quality of the navigation app, ROUTE 66 designed the Panoramic Car Kit in a range of form factors. Each of them fits perfectly with today's leading smartphones: Apple iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4S, the HTC One X, and the Samsung GALAXY S, GALAXY S II, GALAXY S III and GALAXY Note.

The Panoramic Car Kit is designed to provide maximum stability and a clear view for the rear camera of the smartphone. Apart from providing a smooth navigation experience, the car kit also assures the perfect functioning of the Follow Me augmented reality navigation feature. This shows the real road ahead and adds a virtual car driving in front of you as your guide.

The new Panoramic Car Kit:

  • Gives super-firm docking because the device holder is tailored to fit your smartphone
  • Is easy to fit and easy to release
  • Has a dual car charger with an output of 2.1A - twice the power of a regular charger
  • Can be used in landscape and portrait
  • Can be mounted on the windscreen and on the dashboard of your vehicle

‘We believe in providing a complete navigation experience for our customers and this includes having a car kit that lets them make the most of our app,' said Job van Dijk, ROUTE 66 Chief Operating Officer. ‘The new Panoramic Car Kit works perfectly with our Follow Me augmented reality navigation feature, it powers up your device in double-quick time and it's tailor-made for your smartphone's shape.'

The Panoramic Car Kit comes complete with car mount, device holder, dual USB car charger and cable, adhesive dashboard disk and easy-start guide. It retails for EUR 19.99, with free worldwide shipping. For further details and to purchase online please visit
