TomTom, the popular navigation app, has released a new update for its iPhone version to work on iPad which means that you can use your 3G iPad as a turn-by-turn navigation device.

The graphics on the app are customized to fit the iPad`s 9.7 inch screen which is a major enhancement for the older version had to be stretched from its native iPhone size to fit that of the iPad display.

Changes made in the latest version (1.9) include:

OPTIMIZED FOR iPAD: Make the most of your iPad, with a full-screen display that shows you driving view and Advanced Lane Guidance images at the same time. Purchase connected services in-App or easily transfer your existing subscriptions (cellular connection required). When you want to go bigger, move your TomTom App to iPad.

LATEST, UPDATED TOMTOM MAP: Because roads are constantly changing, on average 15% of roads change every year, your TomTom App update comes with the latest and most up-to-date map.

IMPROVED INTERFACE: Your TomTom App is quicker and easier to use than ever. See driving view with one touch from anywhere, access guidance options in a tap, and switch between different route types more easily. It’s a simpler way to enjoy TomTom navigation on your iPhone or iPad.

iPHONE 3G USERS: THIS IS THE LAST VERSION OF THE TOMTOM APP FOR iPHONE THAT WILL FULLY SUPPORT YOUR DEVICE. You will be able to download and use the next version of the TomTom App but new features will not be available to you.

This new release – now officially called ‘TomTom App for iPhone/iPad’ – is a logical next step for us“, said Corinne Vigreux, Managing Director Consumer at TomTom.” Our customers asked us for iPad features, and now they have them.

We have enhanced everything the iPad user sees and interacts with on the touch-screen.”The updated TomTom app is available in the App Store for iPad now, priced £49.99.
