Long rumoured to have been on the way, TomTom for Android has finally arrived in the Play Store! The app, priced at £30.99 for UK maps, £39.99 for Western Europe and £49.99 for the whole of Europe brings with it all of the best bits of TomTom's PND devices for your phone. Well, maybe not YOUR phone... because there's a catch.
The catch is that, for now, TomTom only supports devices with a screen resolution of up to 800x480 / 854x480, which excludes a raft of the latest devices!
This is a real shame as the feature set is very solid. As well as the obvious advantage of onboard maps (no data connection needed), TomTom for Android includes free lifetime updates to the map data, live 'TomTom HD Traffic' data based 'IQ Routes', Speed Camera alerts, advanced lane guidance, spoken street names, eco-routes (drive the most economical journeys), multi stop routes and much more.
Pricing is slightly higher than my existing favourite, Co-Pilot Live but, well, with the very limited device compatability it'll be an irrelevance for many MoDaCo readers. :(
Here's hoping the restriction is removed soon. Head on over to the Play Store to download or learn more!
