TomTom Updates Its Android App, Now It Actually Works

  • TomTom Navigator for Android had one big problem in version 1.0: it was only compatible with phones that had a display width of 480 pixels, meaning WVGA or FWVGA handsets. This means that the Galaxy S III and Nexus 4 for example were left out, which is not cool at all. Luckily, the app just got update and it brings a few nifty improvements with it.

    The issue is fixed in version 1.1 of TomTom for Android, as well as several other problems. You can now download large offline maps to the microSD card instead of the internal storage, for example. TomTom claims that the map downloads can be performed with the app running in the background, also a nice addition. We don’t know if the downloads are resumable, but one can only hope. The price remains pretty high for this solution, with a $50 fee for USA and Canada, much more expensive than the rival Google or Nokia solutions.

    TomTom now supports over 200 of the newest Android devices and the 1.1 version adds more flexible postcode entry. Also finding the locations from the phone address is more reliable now. There’s a holiday special involved in this app, so there’s a discounted price of 30.99 quid for UK and Ireland map. You can get the TomTom 1.1 app for Android from here.
