First, the good news: There is now a full-featured TomTom navigation Android app. It features live traffic data, multi-stop routing, and a gorgeous interface. But there is a bit of bad news, too. In fact it’s rather funny in a sad way: The app is not compatible with recent flagship devices including the Galaxy Nexus, Galaxy S III, HTC One X, and Galaxy Note.
The app looks lovely.
I took my friend's TomTom and told her that I would update the unit. I don't have a TomTom and I thought it would be fairly easy to update the maps on this thing. Was I wrong! I have been trying to update this thing all day. It will not allow me to up date it. It keeps giving me error messages.
By now you must have heard about Apple’s severely flawed maps app. It was introduced last week with the release of iOS 6. What’s bugging many Apple fans is the fact that Google Maps is nowhere to be found as an alternative. Contrary to popular belief, Google never developed the Maps app for previous versions of iOS. Apple actually did with the API’s.
A report today from Bloomberg claims that Apple SVP Eddy Cue, who took over control of Maps from Scott Forstall when that senior executive and iOS architect departed the company, has fired Richard Williamson, a manager who oversaw the Maps team.
Written by: Stephen Withers | Published in: MobilityMapping company Geobyte has deepened its relationship with TomTom by licensing TomTom HD Traffic information for use in its MetroView iPhone navigation app for Australia.
The idea of so-called personally non-identifiable data being sold off to anyone looks like it might be coming to an end, if the outrage over TomTom, Apple, Google, Facebook and anyone else playing fast and loose with personal information has anything to do with it.
Android users finally have a solid alternative to Google’s Map Navigation app. Famed navigation company TomTom has launched its navigation service on Android and aims to bring something that Google Map Navigation can’t do— offline use.
Navigation pioneer TomTom has recently updated its app to support more than 200 new Android devices– which is more than what was seen in the original app. The update includes some important features such as the ability to save map data to your SD card and a redesigned driving view to make key information more accessible.
