Infotech Lead America: TomTom has launched a new version (v1.11) of its Navigation app for iPhone and iPad.
The latest version of the TomTom Navigation app for iPhone and iPad is available as a free download to customers with an earlier version of the app.
For new customers, the app can be purchased for $49.99 at the Apple App Store.
Drivers can easily navigate to places they’ve found on websites and other apps by copying an address and pasting it into their TomTom Navigation app. There’s no need to type as the app will automatically work out the destination and direct them straight there.
While v1.10 integrated Facebook Places with the app, v1.11 adds foursquare. After linking foursquare to the TomTom app, users can search and navigate to their favorite foursquare places, checking in to collect points on arrival.
“This should be particularly helpful when people are off on holidays and day trips. They can find great places to visit and get there fast with foursquare or a quick copy-paste. And that leaves more time to relax and have fun,” said Corinne Vigreux, managing director Consumer at TomTom.
Beyond the new search facilities, v1.11 brings other improvements to TomTom Navigation for iPhone. Changes have also been made to the user interface to make the app even more intuitive to use.
