Tomtom

TomTom updated to 1.3 now with Google Local Search!

The AT&T Navigator app and TomTom for my two favorite GPS solutions; TomTom just took the lead with this most recent update.

One of the benefits of the AT&T Navigator app was the ability to search real-time and navigate to a location via the web. Now, TomTom is bringing us that functionality via Google Local Search, and more! Here is a list in the most rescent update, 1.3:

  • Real-Time traffic- The best traffic information available today (an additional $19.99)
  • Google Local Search- Access the latest listings from within TomTom
  • The Latest Maps- The most accurate map
  • Music Fading- Instead of music pausing, it fades when navigation is spoken
  • Automatic Day/Night Mode- TomTom now calculates the sunrise and sunset and changes the map accordingly
  • Add Locations- From other apps and websites

It is disappointing that the traffic component costs an additional $19.99, but to me the Google Search alone is worth this update. Check out some pics after the break!

TomTom Updates App to Include 1st Gen iPhone and iPod touch GPS Support

TomTom has released a rather significant update to their $99 iPhone Turn-by-Turn GPS application [iTunes Link]. It seems as if they had second thoughts about omitting first generation iPhone (and iPod touch) devices along side the TomTom car kit. It was only last month that TomTom officially stated the kit would not enable GPS with the original iPhone or iPod touch. My how quickly things change, perhaps the release of the free Google Navigation application had something to do with it...

TomTom Car Kit Not Compatible with iPod touch and First-Gen iPhone

AppleInsider is reporting that the car kit will not be compatible with the iPod Touch and first-generation iPhone. This is a complete turn around from early reports from TomTom claiming since the car kit contained it's own GPS, you could indeed use the TomTom App Store software/car kit combo with an iPod Touch and first-generation iPhone.

Got $120? Apple Online Store has TomTom Car Kit for iPhone!

Just bought that ~$100 TomTom iPhone app and have $120 ($199.95 to be exact) bucks more burning a whole in your wallet? What luck! The matching TomTom car kit has just become available via the Apple Online Store! (Shipping in 2-3 weeks!)

Yes, that's $220 total cost of ownership for TomTom lovers, but it's so hard to set a price on convergence, isn't it? (Especially when that convergence now comes in two parts!)
