  • TomTom has just launched its Navigation app for Android, a piece of software that comes with offline driving directions 2D/3D views, voice guidance and mapping updates for the entire lifetime of the software. The application is available in special versions for regions of the world: North American, European, UK & Ireland and other geographical versions.

    It also includes the TomTom HD traffic data, that maps out routes on less busy roads and uses live and historical traffic trends. Sadly, the app is plagued by some compatibility issues, since TomTom built Navigation for Android specifically for devices with up to WVGA screen resolutions. Google Play Store lists the app as not compatible with many of the newer smartphones. Among them there’s the Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy S III. We’re hoping the issue will be fixed soon.

    Navigation for Android seems to be a pretty useful feature here and live traffic data is always a welcome function, especially since it has multi stop routing. It even includes an economy route, for less fuel consumption and automatically fades the music, so you’ll hear spoken instructions easier. TomTom Places and POIs are included as well. All the maps are stored on the phone, so the entire app is quite big, reaching 2.3 GB for the US and Canada region alone.

    TomTom Navigation for Android is available here for $49.99 in the North American maps version, 30.99 quid for the UK Maps and 49.99 for the full European maps.
