TomTom iPhone Application Announcement

AbsolutelyGPS.com announces the launch of the much awaited TomTom iPhone application, which was showcased by Apple at the WWDC in March this year.

The TomTom iPhone application is now proudly displayed on the shelves at the iTunes App Store and is available for purchase at a price of £59.99.

The TomTom iPhone application is a GPS guide unlike any other and allows users to load its improved GPS software directly onto their iPhones. The app provides users with turn-by-turn audio navigational assistance to help you find your way to your destination. This is delivered via audible prompts in a clear and pleasant voice, that users will not mind taking directions from.

One of the best features of the TomTom iPhone application is that it does not require internet connectivity to function, unlike many other GPS devices on the market. This means that you will be able to use the TomTom iPhone application, even if you are unable to get a signal.

The TomTom app also comes outfitted with detailed and easy to understand colour maps from Tele Atlas that users will be able to access on their third generation iPhones. TomTom has equipped its application with both international and national maps that do not require internet connectivity to open.

Since the application is to be used while driving, TomTom has also provided a special car kit accessory that you can fix to your car. The Car Kit is an accessory also available at the iTunes App Store. Although the Car Kit is not required for the TomTom app to function, it is extremely handy to have around, as it allows you to set up your iPhone right next to the steering wheel of your car so that you do not have to take your eyes off the road for too long.

The Car Kit mount includes a speaker and a microphone and functions as a secure dock for your iPhone, while simultaneously charging your phone. The kit is connected to your car’s stereo via a 1/8″ line out jack. The speaker amplifies the volume of sound from your iPhone and the microphone allows for hands free calling.

This wonderful new iPhone application is capable of providing audible prompts and clear directions (without mocking your driving skills) along with improved GPS services. The application also comes equipped with night colours, calling POIs, a favourites menu, route types with categories like bicycle routes, fastest/shortest, avoid highways and walking routes.

The app has been designed for the convenience of the iPhone user and its 2D/3D maps zoom in and out with typical iPhone pinch gestures. Menus such as the favourites menu can be opened with swipes and taps are also recognized by the TomTom software.

Purchasing the TomTom application for your third-generation iPhone is an investment that you will not regret. The TomTom application has been specifically designed for the third-generation iPhone and is soon to be made available at the iTunes App Store. Prices for the app have not yet been disclosed. The application will be launched at the iTunes store with both international and national maps incorporated into the software. Since the maps are part of the software and do not require you to establish an internet connection, you will not have to worry about getting lost without a signal. The new TomTom application will make your iPhone the ideal travel guide for your summer holiday!

    Tested the app out extensively, must say it works a hell of a lot better with the recent update on the iPhone 4, but nothing compared to the experience from a standalone unit, but hey what can you expect, i will continue using my trusty one xl, less crashes, easier to send off to tomtom repairs and more reliable with regards to GPS signal lock and navigation
