Beta team

    Hi @JV2019

    Tomtom have already said that they have closed the list for Beta testers and like many companies they do not state/advertise when a new product or App is coming out.

    I’m extremely disappointed, as are others here, that long time users of the TomTom app weren’t all sent this email to beta test the CarPlay feature we’ve long been waiting for. I understand that we couldn’t all have participated but it could have been on a first come first served basis between all of us. I’ve only found out about this as I check every month or so what developments have occurred.

    I appreciated when you decided to move on from the old app, even though it didn’t start off well, that you gave us who paid full price for the app a couple of years free but the last few months not having CarPlay available has meant I’ve not had use of my TomTom app - remember the recent change in the law making using a phone navigation app essentially illegal.

    Please assure all long-time TomTom app users that we will be told as soon as CarPlay becomes available. As you have run the beta testing period, do you have a rough idea of when that will be?

    All the best,

    I have used TomTom app for iOS from the very beginning and have eagerly been awaiting the CarPlay version. I never received any email's about the BETA program and cannot believe that TomTom still have not released this to the CarPlay market. We are now in March 2019 and there are now a number of nav apps available for CarPlay. I'd gladly pay for the TomTom version WHEN it is released but no way am I renewing my subscription for an iOS app when I can use google CarPlay. Kinda disappointed in TomTom for dragging this out but like any customer, best way to make your point is to NOT purchase and go elsewhere ! Shame as TomTom has to the best app and I have used it all over Europe and the States without fault.

    Hi guys,

    I’m new here. I’ve been using tomtom for many years now.
    I live in the Florence region and I’ve waited for a long tine to start using tomtom on carplay.

    I’m daily in and around Florence an twice a week in Bologna. It would be great if I can help you guys becoming a beta tester.

    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    Waze & Google Maps all had support within a month of CarPlay supporting third party apps.

    NHL Gamecenter just released CarPlay support, still nothing for our navigation app.

    I want to get my phone off my dash, this is the last holdup.

    It is disappointing that we are not being given some more accurate updates from TomTom. I understand that they want their release to be excellent etc and that as their app has much more to it than Waze etc there is more needed in their build but something to inform us regularly would be much appreciated

    Please add me to your CarPlay beta program.

    It's been 4 months since the CarPlay beta program has been opened up to a select few.

    In my experience, once a product has reached the stage of beta testing most of the problems have already been ironed out in the alpha testing by the development team themselves. I really would have expected in the (currently) four months that use by real users of the app in real environments would have by now proved or disproved the CarPlay program.

    So, for those of us not in the CarPlay beta program, would somebody from TomTom please give us some feedback on how the CarPlay beta program is going together with a timeline for release?

    BTW, I don't have access to any vehicle with a CarPlay head unit but I am interested in how long it takes TomTom to do get the CarPlay beta program working as it indicates how fast TomTom could deal with other issues such as adding other features that we've requested:
    1. Custom POI support in MyDrive.
    2. POI icons to appear on the screen.
    3. URL Scheme support.
    4. Map size reduction i.e. remove unnecessary 3D buildings.
    5. Show decimal not fractions when using miles as units.
    6. Show both remaining distance and remaining journey time at the same time.

    The above features are just an example of what we would like as there are other features as well.

    People wishing to have the opportunity to be part of the Beta Team should ask via Twitter.

    I had a one of the Beta team contact me within 24 hours from me DMing them via Twitter and a Link to be part of the Beta Trial.

    It's worth a try, worked for me.

    Kindest Regards

    Hi Lampard, Is there any chance I can get added to the trial. I already trial other apps on test flight. I am keen to get Tomtom working on Carplay so I can loose all the wires. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks.

    After all this time they still haven't released it and when they do it wont be able to sync routes from MyDrive.

    Utterly pathetic and shows how little Tomtom care
