The last time we heard news of TomTom’s arrival on Android, it was simply described as releasing “fairly soon.” Well, today the news is a little clearer. TomTom will be previewing their long awaited Android version today at IFA which will hit the Play Store in October.
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.
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.
