Editor’s Choice for iPhone navigation software - PC Magazine
PC World’s “18 Best iPhone Apps”: “The TomTomApp turns your phone into a GPS navigation device with turn-by-turn directions. Maps and routes are stored in your phone's memory, so updating maps and changing routes happens quickly and without requiring a wireless network connection.” – PC World
“With 28 separately sold packages for regions on every continent but Antarctica, TomTom's navigational apps are ideal for international travel.” – Travel + Leisure
“In my testing, the traffic details were extremely accurate. It reliably reported rush hour slow downs, holiday congestion, and a couple of accidents.” – Mobile Crunch
TomTom’s patented mapping and routing intelligence is at the core of the TomTom App. TomTom is known the world over for the accuracy and extensive coverage of its maps. TomTom maps have been rated highest in terms of quality and reliability. No mobile signal or data plan is required to browse your map and navigate to your destination. And, only TomTom offers IQ Routes, which evaluates routes based on actual traffic speeds rather than posted speed limits, and recommends the fastest route based on the time of the day.
New to version 1.7: the voice of Homer Simpson. Directly from Springfield, America’s most popular Dad makes his way to TomTom. With the original Homer at your side, even the shortest drive will transform into a journey to remember. You’ll see, driving with Homer is as easy as 1,2 … doh! The Homer Simpson voice is available via in-App purchase.
