It was one of the first applications I bought with my first iPhone, a 3GS (a few years ago) and since then it has been updated with new maps without having asked for a single cent. This is TomTom, once the navigation application for the undisputed car and today in low hours because of Google Maps and Apple Maps. Maybe that’s why TomTom has launched a new iPhone application, TomTom Go, free and with more than interesting services that place a step above the competition. We tell you the details below.
For me, and after many years of use, it is still the application that I carry in the car when I want to go to a well guided place. You will not have the best interface, that is indisputable, but its offline maps and its excellent operation are more than enough to prevent you from using another. The new application, TomTom Go, maintains its functions and reliability, but also now debuts a new design that, without being spectacular, does modernize it and finally adds 3D buildings and a much friendlier interface. The menus are much more modern and we find many more functions that are accessible without having to navigate them too much.
TomTom Go’s new freemium model may not convince many, but it is what is now imposed. You can use it up to a total of 75km each month without paying a cent, and with all its functions, including radars and traffic. The old application charged a monthly fee for traffic, so if you used this option now it will be much more affordable. If you are a more intensive user you can buy an annual license for € 19.99, or three years for € 44.99. This license will give you all TomTom services without kilometers limits during that time. Of course, map and radar updates (fixed and mobile) are free. And if you were one of those who had bought (like me) the old application, you will have 3 years free when moving to TomTom Go, so the price of the old app will be more than amortized. A small defect that we hope will solve soon: although it is compatible with the iPad it is not optimized for your screen.
