Re: TomTom on Android

On My Nice new Galaxy Tab I am running Copilot (UNFORTUNATELY) the Maps are fine the fixed cameras are OK it does not do "Mobile Camera's" and the GUI is not as good as My old XDA IIi which is running a old version of Tomtom like you I bought my mice new Android toy expecting that after nearly two years of being out on the market and being the top operating system going that Tomtom would have woken up smelt the coffee and be far ahead with a solution.

 

Like the rest of the Android users I have been VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED

Re: TomTom on Android

I use the Copilot for directions on the Galaxy Tab (NICE BIG SCREEN FOR A OLD GIT LIKE ME) but if I am going to a strange area I will often run the old XDA with the VERY old version but it still picks up mobile camera's as I do not drive slow

Re: TomTom on Android

You might have to wait another 2 years or more. The only thing I see that is brewing is that what India has anything to do with anything I do not know. With all this negative talk you would think it would spark a flame up TomTom's butt to actually come out and tell everyone that they were actually in the process of making an app for Android. But I do not see any flames nothing. Disappointing is hardly the word it is more likely pathetic. Maybe this will help add some fuel.
