Users can now take calls while navigating

TomTom has announced that its iPhone app has been update to take advantage of multitasking support in iOS 4. Users can now make and answer calls without interrupting navigation, as visual instructions are still presented even when a call is in progress. Version 1.4 also provides audio navigation instructions in the background if a user needs to switch to a different app.

Along with multitasking functionality, the update also brings the latest map information and a new sharing feature that can be used to send location or routing information via e-mail. Users can also set reminders that alert to departure times. Other new options include routing based on fuel-efficient routes, and personalized car symbols.

TomTom's iPhone app is now available directly from the company, with the US version priced at $50.
