Re: Tomtom Android App - Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Just read the reviews. Some reviews might be old and sorted ever since, some gives 1* because of missing something that used to have on another navigation, some gives 1* because it wasn't compatible with their phone (or other glitch which wasn't necessary the TT app's fault but other issues).

It is not perfect, but does the trick. Comes with free map updates. The traffic service is a separate in-app purchase though.

Re: Tomtom Android App - Samsung Galaxy Note 2

That does make sense. ..thanks!

I'm looking to purchase the live services, how accurate and reliable is the HD Traffic service, especially in London?

Thanks!

TomTom's traffic service is the best so far, but far from perfect. In the past two days they had some service outage also (bur others have it from time-to-time). Other than that, it is a great stuff.

Thats good to hear.

Lastly, when I purchase the live speed camera service, as well as fixed cameras does it include the other types too, like the specs average speed cameras, mobile cameras etc?

Thanks!

Re: Tomtom Android App - Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Hi,

In driving mode, (driving without a planned route) will it still warn you of speed cameras you are approaching?

Thanks!

Re: Tomtom Android App - Samsung Galaxy Note 2

I used a TomTom device that my brother in law lent to me in France last year - it was brilliant, and I would have struggled to find my way without it.   I now also own a Galaxy Note2 and would seriously consider just buying the TomTom software as it was simple and accurate.

 

My question is just this:  does it compare favourably with the real TomTom (if anyone has ever tried both) please?

 

Thanks,

Pierre

I was lost, but now I'm...

Re: Tomtom Android App - Samsung Galaxy Note 2

I have TomTom for Android running on a Galaxy Note 2 with 64G of memory. I have used TomTom Navigator 6 before on a windows phone and my wife uses a TomTom via 135. The android application is very poor compared to the other platforms and its as if it is still a development release. There are rumours of a significant upgrade to the Android version at the end of this year so I'll wait and see. Many of the functions and customisation are missing.
