I'm not speaking from too much experience here but maybe the way that WP7's multitasking works could be an issue. As far as I know (feel free to correct me), Microsoft restricted the multitasking to cover the core built in apps. The later release of WP7 (Mango) is/was supposed to change this but to what extent I'm not sure.
I guess an app like TT would require it to be running along side other apps just as I can tun TT on my WM6.5 device whilst listening to music and browsing the internet (should I want to).
So maybe, when the new WP7.5 devices start appearing or if the current handsets are upgradable to WP7.5 and multi-tasking support is extended then companies like TT will re-consider their position.
Again, as we've all said, any info on the plans (or not) for TT on WP would be greatly appreciated.

And in the news today... NOT TomTom announcing anything new but turn-by-turn navigation builtin in WP7's new release (Mango).
I'm sure this will require a constant connection but you never know. In the UK you can;t even use Bing on WM6.5 as it's not supported, hopefully UK will be supported on WP7 Mango.
Here's a link to the article which mentions the TbTN

I'm another long standing user that's used TomTom (since TomTom Version 2) on WinCE an WinMo.
Just got a 7 Phone, and while I feel daft for not checking that TomTom would run on it, I'm shocked/annoyed that it doesn't.
Please TomTom, get it sorted.

I think TomTom may want to consider developing TomTom for Windows Mobile 7 before someone else grabs this opportunity. There are now millions of Windows 7 Mobile Phone Users (although mostly in US) but now other parts of the continent are also switching to Windows 7 Mobile (HTC / Samsung) and will be great to see TomTom on Microsoft Market soon.... Typical demans for Maps will be UK, Europe, North America, India, Singapore, China etc...

Could not agree more. It would be nice if someone at TomTom could at the very least acknowledge this thread and whether TomTom are interested in the feedback and suggestions of their loyal customers.
With Microsoft promising Turn by Turn navigate built into Windows Phone 7.5 TomTom really are missing a market here and a market that will be diluted in the fall when WP 7.5 is due.

I am also looking forward to TT on WP7. I am using TT on my current WM6 phone and have ordered a HTC Pro 7. Sadly I now discover that it does not run TT (yet). PLEASE GET TOMTOM WORKING ON WINDOWS PHONE 7 !!!. TomTom rules above all other navigation software available, please do not make me need to go to some other (crappy) solution ...

Is TT available for Android or just iPhone? Agree is bloody crazy that no one from TT has provided any comments on this, perhaps they have forgotten companies who did them same like Wordperfect and Lotus!

Get a grip TT management, the WP7 deserves TT, people in droves are switching to Windows Phone 7 because it simply outclasses any other smart phone on the market. Other phones are looking more like a kid’s toy from the Early learning shop!!
I use TT every day and I would love to see it on marketplace as the next big feature app… I’d buy it in a shot, wow! Just think of the revenue… firstly selling your software then upgrades to it and then maps and map upgrades…..you must have too much money or mad?? Honesty, get TT into bed with Microsoft……!.
ps do you read any of comments? If not you really should.

I don't understand why Tomtom refuse to create a Windows Phone 7 application.
It's clearly the third os for smartphone but a lot of people will buy a concurrent appliaction like Navigon (now under developpement)

Having just ordered my HTC 7 Pro I'm somewhat disappointed to learn that TomTom doesn't have a version available. I've had TomTom on my TyTnII and have been delighted with it - do you have any plans to bring out a compatible version please?
Hi Dave, I also have a TyTN II which I bought the first week they went on sale in September 2007. Everything they say about not making 'em like they used to and it's an oldie but a goodie are correct when it comes to modern sucessors - even the Pro 7 IMO. I looked at 'upgrading' to but was dissapointed that the only microSD card the phone is capable of using is actually built into it (yes that's right there is one inside but it's not designed to be user accessible). I was also disappointed that internet connection sharing has been dropped from the os and pocket media player has now been replaced by Zune. Call me old fashioned but I like my Microsoft Media Players to be as they say on the tin!
As for any hurry folks may imagine TomTom will be in to produce a new version of Navigator to run on Phone 7, are people aware of the legal wranglings from 2009 between Microsoft and TomTom http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_v._TomTom has the basics.
For me, Microsoft and HTC will have to work to include ALL the functionality of my TyTN II in a potential successor and it'll need to have turn by turn voice assisted software either with it or compatible with it for me to upgrade.
