TomTom updates iOS apps with social networking functions

updated 01:30 pm EDT, Wed April 11, 2012

Adds hooks for Twitter, Facebook

GPS maker TomTom has released an updated edition of its flagship iOS app. Version 1.10 implements several promised social networking features, most notably Facebook integration. Users can choose to navigate to places and events listed on the website, and optionally share destinations and arrival times with others.

Several other sharing options have also been built in. Times and destinations can be posted to Twitter, or else sent directly to people via email or SMS.

The app has further been upgraded with new maps. For American users, speed camera data should now come pre-installed, and updated with every subsequent release. The app is a universal title for both iPhones and iPads; pricing depends on the the exact map combination a person buys, although as an example the US/Canada app is $60.
