Search in Tomtom Go

Are there any plans to replace the Search functionality in Tomtom Go with the one from MyDrive?
I’m struggling to find anything in the Go app. The Search function in MyDrive A app is much simple and much better at finding things that aren’t addresses

    Hi @TheCoolCoyote

    Welcome to the community and sorry for the late reply.

    I don't think the search functionality will get replaced on the GO Navigation app, the algorithm resembles what we use on our PND's.

    I link to the user guide here

    Are there some examples you want to share that you can't find in the app?

    Regards

    Thanks both. The search function seems to have improved significantly with the latest app update.

    I believe there's a search setting: 'Near Me' or 'Nearby' which will also narrow things down for you.

    Hi @Panoptes

    The options of "Near Me" , and "Nearby" are available if you are using the App on the Phone. The possibility to input Long/Lat is also an Option when using the App on the Phone however those 3 options are not available to select when using the new option to Search when in CarPlay Mode. Maybe that will come at some time in a future update.

    Thanks. I assumed that setting that option on the iPhone would translate to the CarPlay interface. Much catching up to do, TomTom have.

    Hi @Panoptes

    Apple provide Templates which dictate what can be displayed in CarPlay mode which is the reason for example as to why the CarPlay screen does not display the Route bar which you see when you use the App on the phone.
