Earlier in October, TomTom brought navigation to Android with its smartphone app for drivers. Now, the company is releasing a new update to the app which makes it available to more Android owners.
Besides supporting more than 200 of the newest Android devices including Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X, and Google Nexus 4, the update brings other enhancements such as an improved download manager. Maps are also now stored on the phone's SD card to help save valuable phone memory. The Driving View has also been updated, making the journey information clearer at a glance. In addition, postcode entry is more flexible and the app can find locations from the phone address book more reliably.
TomTom Navigation for Android v1.1 is available to download now from Google Play. TomTom’s introductory offer has been extended for the holiday season, which means customers can get the app at the special, discounted price of S$63.99. People already navigating with the app can update free of charge.
A new update of TomTom's navigation app for iPhone has also been released. Designed to take full advantage of the larger screen on the iPhone5, Menu and search screens have been enhanced, so drivers can see more options and search results.
TomTom’s navigation app for iPhone and iPad is fully functional with or without signal. Offline maps mean that drivers will stay connected to accurate, reliable and up-to-date navigation wherever they go. And, unlike other navigation apps, they won’t incur costly roaming charges when navigating abroad.
TomTom Navigation app for iPhone and iPad v.1.12 is available from the App Store, prices starting at S$64.98.
