Tomtom Go Mobile

Smartphones have certainly made a dent in the GPS navigation hardware market, but TomTom is back with its new Go Mobile app, which aims to go above and beyond your regular maps package.

The app includes support for offline map storage, so you won’t have to eat up all your data as you drive around, real-time traffic updates, speed camera warnings, save-able settings for your regularly visited locations, a 3D view of buildings and nearby landmarks to help you grab your bearings, and more. TomTom’s app also includes a global license, which enables access to all the features above in countries around the globe without the need for data connectivity, which is a big bonus over regular data based map packages.

Customers can use the app for free for 50 miles each month, but will have to upgrade to a yearly unlimited subscription if they want to travel further under TomTom’s guidance. Upgrades can be bought as in-app purchases, costing £14.99 for one year’s access or £34.99 for 3 years. You can download the app from Google Play for free.

Do you have any need for dedicated navigation apps these days, or does Google Maps have you covered?
