TomTom, one of the leaders in GPS navigation, has just dropped an update for its Android app. The update adds some new features, but the most important part of the update is that it adds support for more than 200 new Android devices. This means a ton of new people will be able to use the app to find their way from one place to another.
Some new devices include Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, and LG Optimus G. Other smartphones with a screen resolution between 800 x 480 pixels and 1280 x 800 pixels are also supported by the update. If you’ve been waiting to grab the TomTom app, but were unable to because your device was not supported, today just might be your lucky day.
The update also includes some important new features such as the ability to save map data to your device’s SD card. That map data can take up a ton of memory, and having it store to an SD card can save a ton of space in your phone. This should be a great feature for users of the app.
The last thing included in the update is an improvement to the way TomTom handles downloading map updates. The mechanism for downloading has been improved, which should streamline the process for users. Of course, the app is still very expensive when compared to the the standard cost of the apps on Google Play. However, when you compare it to the cost of a standalone GPS unit, it seems much more reasonable. You can download TomTom for your region from Google Play right now.[via TalkAndroid]
