TomTom announced today at IFA that it’s navigation, map and traffic technologies will all be coming to a new application aimed at Android devices, which will provide Android users with TomTom’s easy to use navigation system, which includes IQ Routes and HD Traffic much like the app for the iOS platform.
As the app is not ready for release until October 2012, we don’t know too much about it just yet, but TomTom have promised more information and pricing structures closer to that date.
Check out the press release below for more information.
TomTom’s on-board maps, IQ Routes and HD Traffic will give Android users the freshest map, the fastest routes and the most accurate arrival times. The application is set for release in October 2012.
“We aim to make TomTom content and services available to as many devices and platforms as we can,” says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director at TomTom. “Bringing TomTom navigation to Android smartphones is, therefore, a significant milestone for us.”
This announcement follows the recent release of the TomTom Hands-free Car Kit for Smartphones. The kit allows users to charge their phone and mount it in clear view. An in-built speaker then delivers the highest quality audio for loud and clear navigation instructions and calls.
More details, pricing and availability will be announced closer to the launch date.
