Our TomTom Navigation App Review

Here at Hot Apps Today we travel around the world for business every day of the week. So we decided to focus this week on the iPhone apps that we use on every trip and that we cannot leave home without.

The first on my list is the TomTom Navigation app. It is by far the most important travel app or travel tool we use on every trip. Since it installs as an iPhone app on your iPhone it is always with you. TomTom also is a complete download so you do NOT need to be online using data while roaming. The other TOP feature for me with the Tom Tom Navigation app is that you can store all of your favorite destinations, hotels, restaurants, sightseeing or tourist attraction and since the TomTom is an app it syncs with your account so you do not loose any of the locations.

This makes the TomTom even more valuable over time saving all the navigation destinations you have visited so you can return or share them with friends with the social sharing tools.

On the TomTom you can also find anything you are looking for using the built in Google Search and then TomTom navigates you turn by turn to your location.

So if you take my advice this is the BEST Travel App I have ever used and I have been using it for 3 years keeping all of my past favorite destinations on my TomTom on my iPhone and it also transfered when I upgraded to the iPhone 4s!

Description for TomTom

TomTom Navigation for iPhone/iPad. World-class TomTom navigation, on your iPhone or iPad

“Bottom Line: Still the most car-like of the iPhone navigation apps, TomTom always gets the job done, and its adaptive routing and HD traffic plug-in are the best in the business.” –PC Magazine

“For Apple devices, I found TomTom most useful. To my eye, the interface was more refined and simpler than the others. The software routed me around traffic more intelligently, too, and it showed more relevant traffic data.” – New York Times

“If a traffic jam has occurred on your route, TomTom HD Traffic will not only inform you how far out it is and how big of an impact it will have on your travel time, but it will also give you the best possible alternative routes. And since traffic data is provided every two minutes, you won’t have to worry about trying to get around a traffic jam only to run into another.” –App Advice
