TomTom brings offline navigation app to Android devices

updated 10:14 am EDT, Thu October 4, 2012

TomTom Android app is lacking support for some of the latest Android devices

TomTom has gone ahead and delivered its promised navigation app ($50, Google Play) for Android-powered mobile devices. The app brings offline navigation capability as well, making it suitable for driving to new and remote places. It's largely the same app as the one offered for iOS users, and includes radar camera warnings in some countries, free map updates, and traffic guidance, among others.

Unfortunately, not all devices are supported, including the popular and latest Galaxy S III, Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy Nexus, in addition to some other new smartphones and tablets. Support is said to be coming by year's end to most of them, however. Also, the FourSquare integration present in the iOS version of the app is missing here.

Included in the 2.3GB app are maps for both Canada and the US. The price is said to eventually go up to $60 to match the price tag of the iOS app, though exactly when isn't known. The app requires at least Android 2.2 and devices with a resolution of 800x480 or 854x480, though higher-res versions are coming.
