I love my TomTom GPS unit. I’ve had it for 3 or 4 years now and it’s been great, the software is easy to use and the directions easy to follow. For someone who seems to have trouble navigating from point A to point B this has been a lifesaver. One problem. We only have one TomTom and my wife and I often want to use it when we are off to different places. That’s why I was so excited to hear that TomTom was working on an iPhone App during the WWDC keynote this year, and tonight it hit the streets.
The TomTom App is now available in the app store. One thing you must know is, it’s a little more spendy than most Apps, at $99 it’s the most expensive app that I’ve ever contemplated, but when you think of the cost of an entire GPS unit, $99 is a steal. Considering that AT & T is trying to sell you a service at $10 a month, a 1 time $99 charge doesn’t sound that bad. It also looks like it’s the software is just as easy to use as my TomTom 1, plus I can pull addresses from my contact list and have TomTom direct me there.
If you’ve never had a GPS and own an iPhone this is one app that you will use everyday. Even when I’m going places I know how to get there it gives me estimated arrival times which makes answering the question “Are we there yet?” so much easier. This is the perfect companion for a youth ministry road trip to find restaurants, gas stations, rest stops and other points of interest along the way. Never get lost in that church shuttle again.
