TomTom previews navigation application for Android
Posted on 29-Aug-2012 22:01 | Tags Filed under: News



GPS company TomTom is showing a preview of its new navigation application for Android. TomTom navigation, map and traffic technologies will be incorporated into the new app.

TomTom's on-board maps, IQ Routes and HD Traffic will give Android users the freshest map, the fastest routes and the most accurate arrival times. The application is set for release in October 2012.

"We aim to make TomTom content and services available to as many devices and platforms as we can," says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director at TomTom. "Bringing TomTom navigation to Android smartphones is, therefore, a significant milestone for us."

This announcement follows the recent release of the TomTom Hands-free Car Kit for Smartphones. The kit allows users to charge their phone and mount it in clear view. An in-built speaker then delivers the highest quality audio for loud and clear navigation instructions and calls.

The TomTom Navigation app for Android will offer drivers:

- World-class navigation - The latest, most accurate TomTom maps available with no need for a mobile signal or data plan.
- Lifetime maps Free updates that ensure access to the latest maps and fastest routes.
- IQ Routes - Arrival times that drivers can rely on at all times of day.
- Advanced lane guidance Gives drivers extra clarity when navigating difficult junctions.
- Spoken street names Makes turnings even clearer.
- 2D / 3D driving view The clearest display for the safest driving.
- TomTom HD Traffic Available as an in-app purchase. It's the quickest way through traffic. Proven.
- TomTom Speed Cameras Available as an in-app purchase. Save money and drive safely with real-time mobile and fixed camera alerts.

More details, pricing and availability will be announced closer to the launch date.
