TomTom delivers £60 iPhone navigation app
TomTom’s turn-by-turn navigation app has officially arrived on the iPhone.
Forgot those 99 pence impulse buys though, the TomTom app with maps of the UK and Ireland is going to set you back a hefty £59.99. Anybody looking for maps of Western Europe will be shelling out £79.99.
The app includes most of the features of its big brothers, including TomTom’s IQ Routes technology, which plans routes based on the experience of other drivers, hopefully avoiding roads prone to traffic jams during certain hours.
It’s also intended to offer more realistic journey times, taking into account slow, winding roads and other factors, rather than offering wildly optimistic estimates.
The company’s also claiming to have worked hard to make use of the iPhone’s more esoteric features and so alongside the typical multitouch gestures to scroll and zoom, the maps can also be flipped into landscape mode and destinations plucked from the iPhone’s address book.
The app is compatible with the iPhone 3G and 3Gs, though TomTom is promising that it will be arriving on the iPod touch soon.
