TomTom U.S. & Canada

TomTom U.S. & Canada

 

Description

The same world-class turn-by-turn navigation that is enjoyed by 45 million people every day has now been tailored specifically to the iPhone.

Editor’s Choice for iPhone navigation software - PC Magazine

PC World’s “18 Best iPhone Apps”: “The TomTom app turns your phone into a GPS navigation device with turn-by-turn directions. Maps and routes are stored in your phone's memory, so updating maps and changing routes happens quickly and without requiring a wireless network connection.” – PC World

“With 28 separately sold packages for regions on every continent but Antarctica, TomTom's navigational apps are ideal for international travel.” – Travel + Leisure

“In my testing, the traffic details were extremely accurate. It reliably reported rush hour slow downs, holiday congestion, and a couple of accidents.” – Mobile Crunch

TomTom's patented mapping and routing intelligence is at the core of the TomTom App. TomTom is known the world over for the accuracy and extensive coverage of its maps. TomTom maps have been rated highest in terms of quality and reliability. No mobile signal or data plan is required to browse your map and navigate to your destination. And, only TomTom offers IQ Routes, which evaluates routes based on actual traffic speeds rather than posted speed limits, and recommends the fastest route based on the time of the day.

The TomTom App takes advantage of iPhone features and functionality to make navigation even easier. You can see maps and routes easier with iPhone 4 Retina Display support, navigate to your destination easier by selecting contacts straight from your address book or photos from your photo gallery, and take hands-free calls easier while navigating with the App's multitasking capabilities.

Removing the update badge with 1.6.1

:
I have an AT&T iPhone and I, like others, was annoyed with the update badge for the Verizon version which supposedly adds nothing new (for an AT&T phone). Ordinarily, I wouldn't care and would simply update the application (which in this case takes considerable time because of the application size). However, I have been the victim a couple of times of TomTom updates which destroy the favorites in the application, which is extremely annoying.

After a couple of days, I noticed one comment that the favorites were preserved with this update so I decided to give the update a shot. After a couple of hours of updating, I'm pleased to report that the favorites are preserved and the file size on the iPhone is somewhat smaller. The update badge has disappeared.

I hope others have the same results.

Awesome!!!

:
I've reviewed this three times and have given 1-3 stars on each release. NOW... this release gets it right!!! The only drawback is the clunky interface. And the unnecessary need for way too many clicks to navigate around or cancel a route, which should be automatic.

Also great... There's no need for the car kit with iPhone 4... it works sitting in the passenger seat... anywhere.

Thanks TomTom!!

5/5 stars

Favorites kept in this update

:
For those who are concerned about losing their favorites if they attempt to update to 1.6.1 from 1.6.0, don't worry. All my favorites are still there after the update.
