The guidance on the TomTom go nav app is every good; it would be excellent if it verbally stated what lane or lanes I need to be in for a turn. The speed limits on the secondary roads here in Humble, Texas are very inaccurate. It looks like 20 mph is a default setting. I would use the app even more if Siri was integrated into it. I could then request directions via Siri for the app. Now I have to stop to manually input a new destination. Without Siri integration, this app is not truly hands free. The apps TomTom competes against like Waze, Apple Maps, and Google Maps have Siri integration and they’re free. I hope Siri integration is a High priority. It’s good it’s compatible with CarPlay, but with no Siri integration, the guidance isn’t going to be the selling point for me; it’s ease of use. 7/27/20 The latest updates are positive but still lags Apple and google map guidance. Both these apps tell you what lane you should be in especially if the turn involves multiple lanes. As an example, if you’re exiting the freeway and there are two lanes there, one of the lanes may be preferential to ensure you’re not in the lane that would put you back on the freeway. I would like to know how TomTom Live Traffic matches to Google Maps and Apple Maps given These two apps have considerably more users than TomTom in the United States. Siri integration is still a must have for App,e CarPlay. 8/20/19 Siri integration is still a must have. Searching for places can be difficult as the app has a hard time finding road names that are in common use in the area. Hwy 59 north in Houston is a example. This road is commonly known as Eastex Freeway. Apps like this Google or Apple recognize the regional name. 10/5/20 When do you expect to have Siri integration? Also, how would I obtain info on TomTom live traffic accuracy vs Google maps, Apple Maps, and Waze. The app is getting better.
won’t even load on my iphone 6. would give zero stars if possible. prefer tomtom over google maps but this is just horrible.
They don’t tell you But there’s a cost of subscription And I still can’t figure out how much is it I am looking I am still looking 👓👓👓👓👓👓
I own a TomTom 620 and love it. Why would I need an app with a monthly subscription attached?
I always loved using my TomTom app when traveling even through the city. But now, it gets confused and begins circling, or shows that I am off the road, or changes directions multiple times all while I am going straight. Is there an update coming?
I purchased a lifetime membership for $79.99 and then TomTom decided they would no longer support lifetime members, and forced a transition to their new App, required monthly / annual fees, and abandoned their customer base. Their app is not very functional, requires very precise search criteria and pales in comparison to results from modern search engines. Don’t waste your money, TomTom will abandon you as a customer when it suites them. Shame on TomTom!
I wanted the TomTom GO app plus CarPlay to replace my TomTom GO 520. It’s a no for me. While TomTom has an ongoing issue with iOS 13 and the MyDrive app I figured I’d give the app a go. The one thing I love about TomTom is their traffic feature. The CarPlay version doesn’t display the bar on the right side of the screen that shows upcoming gas stations, traffic, and parking. For that reason it’s a 4 for me and not a 5. It’s the reliable TomTom directions system and interface, but without the handy bar.
Use this exclusively on Android and thought I’d try it on my iPad. The app loaded, signed into my TomTom account, loaded my maps and now will no longer open. So... 5 stars on Android, zero stars on IPod.
Best GPS apps
I've been using TomTom since one of the first version (PocketPC), and I've always been pleased with it. Navigation is clear and timely, and the maps are amongst the best out there, even outshining Google maps, Waze, etc. I still recommend TomTom, however these are some of the things I don't like: - subscription model is something I really don't like, even though in the end it's not more expensive or even cheaper. - the old purchased (expensive at the time) version can no longer be installed or found. Which is a disappointment. - changing sounds settings while driving is very cumbersome. Granted, one should not be doing this while driving, but I had 2 instances where I couldn't hear anything after just driving away from a gas station. It would be good to have this quick and easy accessible from the main screen. - preferred routes, or reversing an already driven route, seems not an option, and at the slightest TomTom throws me back to a route I really do not want to take. Maybe it's me not being able to find how to do this. I just wanted a route along certain major cities (not stopping there!), but could not find an option for that. Tom Tom team: I can give you a good example to illustrate this, feel free to contact me directly. - certain streets are very narrow, it would be good to see some kind of warning and/or an option to block that route (the standalone TomTom devices were offering such an option). I got stuck with my car in such a street, and wanted to mark it as "do not use", but couldn't find an option. - the user interface is not very intuitive, unlike older versions. This however seems common trade amongst navigation apps.
