TomTom U.S. & Canada 1.6.1

TomTom U.S. & Canada
Take advantage of a special price on world-class TomTom navigation

The same world-class turn-by-turn navigation that is enjoyed by 45 million people every day has now been tailored specifically to the iPhone.

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.

The TomTom App takes advantage of iPhone features and functionality to make navigation even easier. You can see maps and routes easier with iPhone 4 Retina Display support, navigate to your destination easier by selecting contacts straight from your address book or photos from your photo gallery, and take hands-free calls easier while navigating with the App’s multitasking capabilities.

- TOMTOM MAPS: Your TomTom App comes with the latest and most up-to-date map, ready to navigate.
- MAP SHARE™: Make changes to your own map and benefit from thousands of updates made by TomTom users every day – on-demand, wherever you are, free of charge.
- IQ ROUTES™: Only TomTom uses actual speed data collected from millions of users to accurately calculate the travel time of your route. It takes into account rush hour, traffic lights… even shopping crowds. So no matter what time it is, you can rely on IQ Routes to tell you when you’ll get there.
- REAL-TIME TRAFFIC UPDATES: Outsmart traffic with real-time information for your route delivered directly to your TomTom app. Based on incoming traffic information, your TomTom will recalculate travel time and suggest alternate routes to minimize potential delays. Available via in-App purchase.(1)
