TomTom sees the writing on the free Google Maps Navigation wall--and has now introduced a U.S.-only version of its $99 iPhone GPS app at half price, four months after the app first hit Apple's App Store.

For $49, all you lose with the new version are Canadian maps. Which is no big deal if you're not heading to Canada by car any time soon. It still includes maps of Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

As before, the app's UI mirrors that of TomTom's line of standalone portable navigation devices. It also offers 2D and 3D views, IQ Routes, Advanced Lane Guidance, and (now, at least, with a recent update) text-to-speech functionality for pronouncing street names.

Grab the special U.S.-only version in the App Store--complete with its "Xmas" icon. The company is calling the $49.99 price "introductory" through December 28th. I guess we'll see what that means on 12/29, huh?
