TomTom’s app is probably the best out the pack for mobile GPS with some excellent features, however the Android version left a lot to be desired due to te fact it was incompatible with a huge list of Android devices.
TomTom have today remedied that and have released a new update to the Android version of the app which has been optimised for use with over 200 devices including the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X and the Google Nexus 4.
Alongside the new compatibility with devices, the update also brings various Map improvements now allowing the application to store map data on the phones SD card if available as well as an updated Driving View and a more flexible postcode entry system.
You can pick up the app from the Google Play Store for a discounted price of £30.99 at the moment, so if you haven’t got it yet now is your time.
London, 4 December 2012 – In October 2012, TomTom brought world-class navigation to Android with its smartphone app for drivers. Today, TomTom releases a new update to the app that makes it available to more Android owners. The latest version is optimised for use with the latest and most popular smartphone handsets including the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and Google Nexus 4.
