TomTom App

Grieving over a lost route on an urgent trip to the camp hill pretty aptly describes the disappointment of a misfortune. TomTom has just upgraded its TomTom app for iPhone in order to turn such an ill luck around. This new version 1.6 has been update to include TomTom Map Share.

Be it chalking out a treasure map for fun or just driving to a new neighborhood for house-hunting, iPhone 3.0 or later owners can now quickly access up-to-date and accurate maps. Instant changes to users’ own maps and map updates carried out by the TomTom community can be accessed with complete ease. Interestingly, the application empowers users to make alteration to the street names or set driving directions in addition to blocking and unblocking streets on their maps.

“We are pleased to bring TomTom’s exclusive Map Share technology already enjoyed by millions of TomTom GPS users everyday to our iPhone App. With the addition of Map Share, TomTom App users will get free, verified updates via Map Share anytime on top of the most accurate map available on-board,” stated Tom Murray, senior vice president of market development for TomTom.

The newest traffic updates and incident reports are added to users’ routes by the TomTom Traffic. If any delay is discovered on a particular path, customers are automatically alerted and diverted to a faster way. This application also checks for fresh verified map revisions including turn restrictions, speed limit changes and crossing changes. This authentication is carried out mechanically every week or as often as demanded by users. Thanks to the Map Share, users will be proffered the recent most maps in between new map releases.

The TomTom App for the U.S.A as well as U.S. and Canada can now be downloaded for $39.99 and $49.99, respectively. Additionally, users can opt for the twelve months TomTom Traffic service via in-app purchase for $19.99. The continental and regional versions of the applicatoin are now available for iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPod touch users.
