TomTom for iPhone 1.3 Live video review



Read the full TomTom for iPhone 1.3 Live review

The addition of TomTom’s HD Traffic makes the company’s iPhone app the most accomplished smartphone sat-nav software for the regular traveller, and the lower cost of the service compared to TomTom’s standalone Live devices could potentially be attractive too. However, our overall conclusion remains similar to our verdict on the first version: it's expensive.

for some reason even though the tomtom iphone app includes a bicycle route guide, it's eternally confused by roundabouts. on several occasions it will tell me to go round a roundabout, then leave at the correct exit, only to then tell me to turn around and go back round the roundabout... and exit at the same exit. this happens time and time again.

that and it has never said "you have reached your destination" - it just says some instructions, then blank :(

Finally, one day PAYG pricing for live services! I've been banging on about the need for this for ages. It makes the live services a feasible option for occasional users. I hope they extend this pricing model to their standalone devices, even if it's likely to be more expensive on those devices.

much prefer the 'maps on device' sat nav as it can be fully used where there is no phone signal, which is a real possibility if you are lost somewhere remote and need a satnav/map

@Jay: The maps are on the Device, IOW: If you have no phone signal it still works. Live feature of course requires a signal, but then so does a dedicated device.

@ Keith: I've just read my comment back and it does sound like I was criticising the tomtom but it was actually supposed to be a small dig at google navigation, as I much prefer this maps on device way, my apologies for a poorly written comment
