TomTom Navigation app arrives on Android

By
TomTom's Navigation application is now available for Android devices through Google Play.

The downloadable sat nav has been available to Apple device users for some time, and was first announced for Android at the IFA trade show last month.

Navigation comes to Google Play with a range of features, including live traffic updates and offline support. However, the app is presently incompatible with several popular devices, such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Google Nexus 7 tablet.

"TomTom has a history of making great navigation applications. Our existing iPhone app gets fantastic customer feedback and regularly wins awards," said Corinne Vigreux, managing director of TomTom.

"Today, we are bringing this world-class navigation experience to millions of Android smartphone users for the first time."

TomTom supplied the technology behind Apple's disastrous iOS 6 Maps application, but the firm quickly moved to deny it was at fault for the issues plaguing the service, claiming that the additional visual data Apple added was to blame.

TomTom's Navigation is available to download for selected Android devices for £30.99 for the UK/Ireland map and £39.99 for Western Europe. The software requires 3.7GB of free memory to install.
