TomTom for Android update adds support for more devices

by: Kristofer WoukDecember 4, 2012

When TomTom for Android finally launched back in October, any celebration was minimal due to limited device support. Luckily, an update released today brings support for increased screen resolutions and therefore more devices.

Initally, TomTom only support devices with a resolution of 800 x 480 or 854 x 480, which meant only a handful were supported. Now the app supports resolutions from 800 x 480 up to 1280 x 800, meaning users of popular phones like the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTC One X and LG Optimus G are now able to use TomTom navigation.

In addition to device support, TomTom now downloads maps to a microSD card by default, assuming one is present. The reliability of map downloading has also been improved, and apparently a map update will be available sometime this month.

Have you used the TomTom app for Android, or were you unsupported until now? For those who have used it, what do you think of the app?

    No thanks, TomTom. See: Google Maps.

  • Still no Israel :(

  • Free offline Google Maps completely negates a $49.99 Tom Tom app purchase.

  • No need in this… unless you do not always have data coverage or are cheap like others who posted.
