Developer and creator of navigation technology TomTom has announced the launch of its new iOS app, TomTom GO Navigation.

The app intends to boast TomTom’s latest innovations and the freshest maps, together with Apple CarPlay compatibility, so drivers can use their app on an in-dash screen as well.

TomTom says that GO Navigation will let drivers experience the real-time services of online navigation without draining their data, as the maps are stored on the driver’s phone.

The apps offline maps feature means that it can update smaller map attributes like speed limits, road directions and road blocks on a weekly basis.

In addition, TomTom offers Maps à la carte, allowing users to add and delete map regions based on their personal driving needs. Maps can be downloaded on a country or regional level based on individual needs, limiting the amount of phone memory used.

Mike Schoofs, Managing Director, TomTom Consumer said, ‘With the launch of this premium app, we demonstrate our ability to innovate and bring expert road guidance, including TomTom Traffic and Speed Cameras powered by millions of drivers, to our community.’

TomTom GO Navigation app is available in the App store and is expected to become available on Android later this year.

Current TomTom GO Mobile app users will be able to upgrade to the new GO Navigation app as it becomes available to them.
