Is TomTom Go Mobile end of life? Are you killing it off?

Is TomTom getting out of the Phone Mobile app business?

“Rapid changes in TomTom and Apple technologies mean that we cannot continue offering updates to this app indefinitely. For this reason, we will not be supporting this app from September onwards. More information will follow in our next update.
Until this time, you will receive map and software updates and we hope that you will continue to enjoy using the iPhone Navigation app.”

    That FAQ is related to the predecessor of the TomTom GO Mobile app. Users of that app were offered three years of use of the GO Mobile app.

    The GO Mobile app is about to receive an update and if you have subscribed to our newsletter you will receive more information soon. We cannot give a release date, though.

    Hi JGuthrie,

    You might be forgiven for thinking that TomTom is killing off the Go Mobile, due to the lack of progress with the development of TomTom GO Mobile iOS.

    However, the above message that you're referring to above, was for the previous TomTom navigation app.

    Regards,

    Unfortunately, there has been quite a delay between the release of the last few updates. Also, those updates have not shown much if any improvement to the app nor its functions or features so please don't expect us to get too excited about a new release. This is because going on past performance the update will not be for a while and when it does arrive it will not change much at all.

    However, I'd love to be proved wrong! :)

    You see, they give you a little bit of information and after that don’t respond anymore. Trained webteam employers

    I just wish that TomTom development team would regularly visit this forum (surely they already do so?) and fix the problems that we report and add the extra functions that we request with regular new version releases.
