TomTom Turn by Turn GPS - $100 in AppStore Now
TomTom iPhone navigation software has been rumored for over a year
, and kept appearing
in the media... and it's finally here.
Priced at a wallet-crunching $99.99, TomTom U.S. and Canada
is just as good as the TomTom products - with a few big usability features that shine, mostly benefits of the iPhone OS itself. Pinch and zoom on the map works as expected, as well as plugging in an address from your recent searches or anyone in your contacts. Of course it also works in both landscape and portrait mode.
I haven't tried out the IQ Routes
TomTom touts as "award-winning technology," but the premise is it calculates the smartest, most efficient route - not just the shortest - based on the actual driving experience of millions of TomTom users.
The app currently has maps for the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. The developer name they are using is TomTom International BV
, which makes you think they'll be adding new countries soon... and at over 1.2 GB for this one, I'm betting they'll be separate apps. Hope you don't travel too much.
A car mount is listed from TomTom
, although there's no word on pricing or availability yet... which is strange since they link to that page from their AppStore listing.
