Loses conection Looks pretty, gets you there, but keeps losing conection when driving. Also I may add, that not all street maps are fully up to date. I drove into Manchester City centre at the weekend as it was guiding me to a parking area, but in turn navigated me through "bus&taxi only lanes". I like the fact that it only works off GPS and not your phone data. It's got allot of potential, but still needs some work.
I'd give this five stars because as a sat nav it's the best I've tried. Apart from one issue and that is that when I connect it to my car radio through bluetooth the voice instructions turn off, just silence. Others I've tried (Sygic, Google maps etc) all work perfectly through bluetooth so it can't be hard but this kills the app for me. I've tried the forums and settings and can't find an answer so bye bye tom tom and keep looking.
Updated: 1.12 fixes issues on Android N so back to 5 stars. Really impressed with this, so much so I've taken out a 3 year Subscription. I had issues with the latest TomTom car satnav, it never updated properly. This app gives all the features I'm used to with TomTom with the convenience of not having to update on a PC and take an extra device with me on a journey.
Basics are here The app has all the basics of a good navigation app: spoken directions in different voices, good maps, decent traffic reporting, reasonable time estimates, different driving profiles, etc. It's missing two main features though. Which weigh quite heavy for me: different maps don't connect and no voice over Bluetooth.
Good App, but internet integration missing App should have integrated with Google or internet search to find places to go and transfer address from search engine to TomTom. Because that feature is not there, lots of the time I use Google maps. The app if used for long drive, can heat up the phone. This sometimes shuts the app down and you are suddenly with out navigation, while driving. Sometimes, the app just freeze, and there is no indication that the app is frozen. This may be phone specific. Apart from that, it is a nice navigation app.
Would be good, except that it murders the battery on my Sony Z2. Probably a good idea to get a charging lead for in car use tbh. Recently however, an issue with the speed camera warnings has arisen; lots of them are missing. As an example, Blackpool prom has one about every half a mile, but most are not showing up in the app. This needs to be sorted as, currently, I can't trust the app to know where the cameras are.
Destination prediction: Turn on this feature and the app will start learning your driving habits and predict when you're likely to drive to frequent destinations saved in My Places. It remembers the time of day when you make regular trips, so the more you drive with it, the more accurate its predictions will become. A commute will be ready right away with the latest traffic information.
