TomTom Navigation for Android Arrives
TomTom has officially launched its Navigation app for Android. Earlier on, the company gave a sneak peek of the app during its preview at the IFA 2012.
Now, users need not have to worry about losing signal in the middle of their journey, or incur hefty roaming charges when traveling abroad, thanks to the latest TomTom maps which are loaded and stored offline. The app also includes free quarterly map updates so drivers will be well-equipped with the latest maps on their smartphone.
To celebrate its launch, TomTom employees in Amsterdam have been getting into the spirit of the things by showing off some Android-inspired dance moves. The action has been captured in this video, TomTom does the robot. The public can also join in the fun by participating in the “Be a robot” contest where participants send in a photograph of their best robot impression and stand a chance to win a Samsung Galaxy S II Smartphone.
The TomTom Navigation app for Android is available now at a special introductory offer from the Google Play store, priced at S$63.99. Users must own smartphones running Android 2.2 or higher, with a screen resolution of 800 x 480 or 854 x 480.
