I see one forum entitled TomTom GO Navigation app for Android™ and another with the name TomTom GO Mobile and Navigation for Android™. Could someone please compare and contrast their different purposes?

    Perhaps TomTom would rename TomTom GO Mobile and Navigation for Android™ to become simply TomTom GO Mobile for Android™ to make this plainer to people like me with very small brains.

    You're right.
    The problem is probably that the new app was already available in other countries and is only now being released for Europe..

    We with very small brains thank you.

    To be pedantic, I note that the product name of the new app in the Play Store is simply TomTom Navigation and its internal name within the app is merely TomTom, so there is no GO in any version of its name.

    P.S. on the topic of chaotic naming, the worst present example is a TomTom app in the Play Store under the name of TomTom Speed Cameras - Alerts & Live Traffic while it's internal name and how it appears in the phone and app listing is Safety Cameras and also there is a Discussions forum with the name of TomTom AmiGO app for Android™ which I suspect is also related.

    The previous chaos was when TomTom was naming too many things MyDrive including a web site, a phone app and a PC maintenance tool for PNDs. The last one was renamed MyDrive Connect but that hardly helped the newbies.

    For a company dedicated to navigation TomTom is not too great at its own signage!
