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.
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.
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 currently have an iPhone 3GS & i'm looking at replacing. I'd really like to buy the Galaxy S3, but i play this game that much that it's hampering my decision. On my breaktimes at work, whenever i'm bored with nothing else to do etc.
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.
