Ok, so I've finished updating my XL and Go devices, and stumbled into this section.... I had no clue TomTom was available for iPhone....
So I've read the stickies and a bunch of the threads, and I can't figure out some stuff..
Is this ONLY for jailbroken phones? Is there any way to get TomTom on my iPhone, or do I need to buy the app from the iTunes store.... and assuming I were to buy it, can I update the maps with the latest here, or once again, will that require a jailbroken phone?
It would be nice to see a sticky for the TomTom for iPhone newbies explaining what we can or can't do, and requirements, etc.... thanks...
I don't really know if you can pirate the software from Cydia or something with a jailbroken phone, I haven't jailbraking tried mine. If I'm not mistaken, at the moment the way TomTom app updates is that they release a free update that replaces the whole software and map as well. But I have the TomTom app for US and I don't recall that they would have released any updates recently any more. Could be that they are working on a different map update program.
TomTom might go in the same direction as Navigon, who recently came up with a pretty decent map update logic (i have Navigon app for Europe). Navigon used to work like I described in ^ but now you can select the maps of countries you keep on your iPhone (or iPad). You can download, delete and redownload the countries when you need them. And they also have a map update program, where you pay some money and get access to 4 maps per year, for a year (I recall). They don't give free map updates anymore.
This is just speculation, but I suspect TomTom is going that road as well, or something similar.
Does anyone have the same problem as me? I just upgraded my iPhone 4 to iOS5.0.1 and also had it jailbroken.
Then I restored all my Apps to the phone. Almost but TomTom SE v1.9 is not working. When I tap TomTom SE icon,
the TomTom logo does appear but nothing other than that happens. I have checked Setting > Location Services but
there's no Location Services icon for TomTom in the Setting as well.
I tried deleting and reinstalling several times but it is still not working. I then installed Sygic SE and it worked without a problem.
I tried other methods by giving that TomTom .ipa to my friend and his phone works just fine not like mine.
I have no idea what is wrong with my iphone. Can anyone please help me out? Thank you.
