TomTom Launches All New ‘TomTom GO Mobile’ App for iPhone

TomTom has today announced the launch of an all new navigation app for iPhone called TomTom GO Mobile, offering a combination of the latest TomTom car navigation technology and world-class traffic information. The app, which is available as a free download in the App Store, allows drivers to experience TomTom’s premium navigation up to 75km every month free of charge, while an in-app purchase of $27.99 unlocks unlimited navigation for a year.

Corinne Vigreux, the Managing Director of TomTom Consumer, said that the TomTom GO Mobile app is made for drivers who want to experience the best of TomTom on their smartphone. “We completely rethought our mobile solution so that every driver has the chance to try navigation with TomTom Traffic. Now all iPhone owners can avoid the traffic jams and get to their destinations faster, every day”, he added. The new app also features a global map licence so drivers can use it in over 150 countries even without a network connection.

    So I should pay almost $30 for something that comes for free on my phone via Apple Maps or I can get for free (Google Maps) if I don’t like Apple Maps. Let me think hard about this.

    TomTom Go gives you offline maps so you don’t need to use any data. Very useful when traveling in the US to avoid crazy data roaming charges.

    So goes Google maps.

    Gary and Usman, don’t know if you already knew this but current users of the regular Tom Tom app got a offer to try the service free and unlimited for 3 years as an upgrade. There is a direct download option for this app included in the latest update for the regular Tom Tom app. I opted for it cause why not. Haven’t played around with the app yet though.

    So does Here Maps. Nokia’s Mapping app. And it’s free.

    Both Apple and Google maps will incur roaming charges if you are outside your home area. Apps like Garmin or Navigon, it works exactly like the standalone GPS device, as long as you get a clear signal to the satellite.

    It said free upgrade for 3 years. Does that mean I would have to pay $27.99 per year after that or would I have the option to go back?

  • flutor

    Google maps allow you to download maps for offline navigation since last December. However, offline navigation is only available for driving.

    6GB download for Canada/USA maps. Ridiculous, deleted right away as I don’t want to commit that much space to one app. Old TomTom app used 2GB
