HTC Touch Cruise 09


Mobile Gazette readers may recognise the Touch Cruise 09 as O2 announced it late last year under the name O2 XDA Guide. This particular phone is also known as the HTC Iolite, which was its codename during development.

HTC Touch Cruise 09


HTC Touch Cruise 09 also known as HTC Iolite, is a smartphone with built-in GPS receiver, 2.8-inch touchscreen and 3.2 megapixel camera. Other features include Bluetooh 2.0 with A2DP, Wifi, USB and run on Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 Operating System.

Relatively cheap; nice design; fast processor

Some functions too complicated; unimpressive speakers

All in all, an elegant, practical and somewhat affordable smartphone that can be a little frustrating at times.

HTC Touch Cruise (2009)


Moving away from sleek iPhone lookalikes, the 2nd-gen Touch Cruise should find its market with road warriors who want the best of smartphones and GPS nav systems in one device.

Overall The new Touch Cruise looks great, but HTC needs to make sure its navigation phone is capable of turn-by-turn navigation straight out of the box. Having the carriers pre-install a subscription-based mapping service would be a real shame.

HTC Touch Cruise (2009)


The PDA is as would be expected.. docks and syncs no probs with PC. After you work around the applications available, you get to realise the power and potential of this PDA. The Nav Tom Tom is great and its actve GPS is a real winner over other similar...

Applications and ease of use. Nav 10/10. PDA Excellent

HTC Touch Cruise (2009)


I upgraded from the older cruise. Very happy with purchase as included latest TomTom program V.7 and Australian maps as standard. This is my 5th HTC device in 4 years - all great products!

Great phone with no dropouts, reliable GPS, compact, good screen, touch flo , 3g

GPS button on front appears to not be working and has no option to assign program to it. Have checked another unit in shop and is the same. Unable to find any accessories as yey - however, this will change soon

Product Specifications

The new HTC Touch Cruise, an update to 2008¿s popular HTC GPS device of the same name, is the first mobile phone to offer HTC Footprints which enables people to permanently chronicle their special moments by capturing a digital postcard on their phone. Once captured, Footprints provides the ability to take notes and an audio clip of that favourite restaurant or special place while identifying its specific geographical location. In addition to identifying each postcard with its specific GPS co-ordinates, Footprints also auto-names each postcard with its general location or area. The HTC Touch Cruise is also an advanced in-car navigation system. When placed into its accompanying car cradle, the HTC Touch Cruise automatically transforms its user interface into an easy-to-use, one-touch interface that provides seamless turn-by-turn directions.
