TomTom Rumored to be Hiring an iPhone Developer for Navigation App ➝

According to TomTom is looking for an iPhone developer in Amsterdam to build a GPS navigation application for the iPhone. The job listing they are referencing, posted on JobServe, does not mention TomTom specifically but, TomTom is located in Amsterdam. I don’t know about you but I can’t think of another navigation company in Amsterdam.

From the job posting (in case it gets taken down):

I’ve seen a demo of G-Map for iPhone 3.0 and it looks good. I’m hoping TomTom will be able to come up with something better (although I’m not sure what they could improve). One downside of this job listing is that it is May and if TomTom is just now hiring iPhone developers there is no way they are going to be ready for the launch of iPhone 3.0. That is disappointing.

Update 6/10/09: TomTom was on stage at the WWDC keynote confirming that they will be releasing an iPhone application and hardware accessory.
