Feedback for AmiGO App (iOS)

Hi. I recently used this app on a road trip in Greece and I have the following comments for improvement:
I couldn’t find street names for smaller streets. Not sure how to fix it but I had to use google to navigate to the location instead.
I couldn’t navigate to a pinned location send by a friend.
Poor integration with whatsapp (which makes it a hassle to use AmiGO rather than the integrated apps as i need to copy and paste info hoping it will match the AmiGO map).
Manual searching on a map for POIs or location feels bulky. So if you don't know exactly where you are going, it is less convenient to use AmiGO.
Many times speed camera’s were shown on roads that I’m not on and this got confusing and distracting at times (especially in the cities). Same goes for road with heavy traffic. If it is not on my current road or potential detours, I should not be seeing it.
Toll roads are not visible on the map. It would be nice to see when a toll road is coming up and what I can expect to pay. Even when calculating my full route, it would be great if the app estimated my toll spend.
Speech recognition for speed camera updates. I didn't always have the ability to touch the screen to confirm if I could see the camera. But if I could say yes or no instead, that would be easier and safer.
Consider Hub colour changes only for longer tunnels (and why does hub not change as smoothly as map?) as for short tunnels the constant change in colour is distracting.
Hope this helps!
Kind regards

    Hi @Flo-Rida

    Welcome to the Community and thank you for your feedback! I'll send these to my team and they're already working on adding toll road features.

    When I'm listening to music on my phone and open the AmiGo app the music volume decreases on its own. And the only way to fix it is to go into the app settings and turn it back up as the phone volume settings have no effect. This is so annoying having to do this every single time I use the app

    Just to better understand this, the volume of music gets lowered when AmiGO gives a voice instruction and then stays low?

    Hi there! When will AmiGo for iOS come to the US? I am aware that AmiGo for Android is available already for early access which I am part of.

    I don't have a time frame at this point of time. AmiGO is currently in beta in the US.

    I’m happy to be able to choose amigo now in the sharing menu.
    I would like to see a longer list of recent locations in the app.
    The speedcamera’s also give a sound when the speed can is on an other road close to the route. So the app does not checks if the camera is really ontheven route but only inside a specific range. An example is in amsterdam when driving on ring west and the speedcam is at the and of the exit.

    I have had for 2 times in Holland that the route goes through a road forbidden for cars. It would be handy to Mark this road in the app. It seems that marking is only an option when on a road, but not choose a specific road when I’m already at my location.

    In Holland there is a different Max speed at night and during the day on highways. Is this possible to adjust in the app?

    I would like to add an extra stop to my route, and also would like to have the option to start the trip on an other time.

    Could there be an option to here a sound, like a ping, for every time I have to make a turn? So I wouldn’t have to have the voice on al the time but I get a reminder to look at the app for the route. This is nicer when listening to music or a podcast while driving and don’t have al the interruptions al the time.

    I assume I was invited to try the Amigo IOS beta because I used to be a loyal customer. I have owned either 5 or 6 TomTom stand alone automotive SATNAV devices. I prefer the bigger stand alone SATNAV devices. For me they were easier to use and see while driving. However, after your GO Supreme 6” fiasco (I literally just gave up and pulled it off my windscreen last month) I thought I would try your Amigo. So, to be kind, here is my two suggestions for improvement. 1. Make waypoint stops easier to find and add. 2. The biggest for me: Speak the road or exit with the directions. A phone is too hard to look at the tiny print at 75 miles per hour when you have multiple exits within a fraction of a mile.
    So, since this is feedback, this is my general feedback for TomTom. Make this like a standard SATNAV. My first impression after using the GO Supreme and now the Amigo app is: did all your programmers/engineers that knew how to do all this get up and walk away? I miss being able to plan routes, add stops, putting a pin in spots and being able to either navigate there are getting as close as possible if the pin is placed where a road cannot take you directly to it. My Go Supreme was SO flawed and slow, I swore I would never get another Tom Tom again, but since I was using my phone anyway and used to like TomTom services; I decided to give Amigo a try. I will still try for the short trips, but until I can get streets spoken, I cannot rely on this for long trips with multiple exits or traffic congestion.
