Just a few days after it was officially submitted, its now available! TomTom’s updated sat nav app is now in version 1.2 and available from the App Store. It boasts a number of much needed updates and surprisingly, TomTom has decided to support iPod Touch and the first gen GPS-less iPhone.
For those who have been waiting / undecided whether or not to get the sat nav app for your iPhone, this update is significant in that TomTom has now caught up with the others by allowing for turn-by-turn navigation. However, this still means you will need that expensive car kit to work. The Tom Tom car kit has a built-in GPS module, integrated speaker and line out. However, it’s not vital if you have the iPhone 3G or iPhone 3GS.
Other improvements include improved search and route summary screens, updated maps and points of interest databases, an updated IQ Routes database, Advanced Lane Guidance in both portrait and landscape modes, Text-to-speech in English, French, and Spanish, a Help Me! emergency menu, and iPod player support. For readers in the US and Canada, the app will cost $100 while for those in the UK it will be £59.99.
