TomTom version 1.9 for iPhone is released, now optimized for iPad

TomTom has been optimized for the iPad by giving it a higher resolution for crispy graphics and enhanced the user interface to accommodate the larger size of the screen. This update is also compatible with Apple’s new mobile Operating System iOS 5. This new update, now officially called; ‘TomTom Application for iPhone / iPad ’ - is the next logical step for us, says Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director Consumer at TomTom. “Our customers have requested advanced features for the iPad, and now have them.”

The TomTom iPhone / iPad app comes with a new release of maps: a benefit for users of both Apple devices. The new road maps includes upgrades, and more precise information on the location of speed cameras and Points Of Interest.

With this update, TomTom has used the extra space that the iPad screen gives. The full screen display shows both the Driving View and Advanced Lane Guidance at the same time. Drivers can also switch to driving with just a tap anywhere on the application, and this way they can access support options.

Customers also will have HD-Traffic as an extra option to purchase within the application itself. The previous owners of HD Traffic subscription or radars are only required to change their subscription to their iPads / iPhones, without charge. That means that all TomTom navigation options can now be enjoyed on the iPad.

Availability and prices

TomTom App for iPhone / iPhone 1.9 is now available from €49.99. Existing users of the iPhone application can download the new version of the application for the iPhone for free.
