Look, its ok. The maps are not the best, very 1990 in their look and feel. We have all gotten used to Google's maps. The settings NEEDS an option to shut down without a confirmation dialog box! For the love of chocolate, it's just an info app, closing it doesn't lose anything. Otherwise not bad, although I just use the speed display/camera warning overlay.
I want so much to love this app. I love it when it works but it just doesn't on my flagship Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. If you have Bluetooth enabled for music and start the app it will sometimes try to search for satellites and quickly get passed this but it does not lock on to the location and never does after this. Other times it doesn't even give the searching for satellites message and again doesn't ever lock onto the location. I have tried and tried to get this to work (I am a professional software tester) but it has probably only worked properly about 4% of the time. It doesn't appear to be an issue with the phone, as other apps manage to lock on to GPS correctly. Please fix this (as I think that when it doess work it is a great app).
Used alternative apps most of times but this TomTom app is excellent for speed camera detection love the basic but brilliant features like watermarking over the phone. Down side is map always points North not way of travel and hope it's free no subscription after a while. 10/10 so far can see people using TomTom again more often.
I like this app but it could do with few rough edges sorting out i.e. voice a bit grating but may be there is a reason for that to jolt you in to listening I guess. Some of the speed advice is incorrect but I realise Tom Tom will be addressing these issues in due course. Would be willing to pay for the app if it was more accurate. However, for being free it is very useful. Thanks Tom Tom here's to seeing future improvements.
Output sound to car doesn't stop music playing at the same time and just warns along with music apps so hard to hear with them both playing at the same time. Can't even contact thru email cause need create account and when I do it says it's disabled or incorrect. Reset password and still can't log in but can log in through user icon but can't log on when contacting. Just so many hoops to try and help Dev make app better and can't.
Speed limit says 21 in 20. Some speed limits are incorrect, with no way to update them like in Waze. Some speed limits missing. Would be good if it could read map and route data, as I can be on a flyover doing 70 and get warnings for 30 camera on the road underneath the bridge. Not good!
