CarPlay support?

After recently downloading TomTom AmiGO I find it’s maps superior to the paid premium TomTom Go fo iPhone. Sadly the one thing it lacks is CarPlay which for me would now make this about the best sat nav in the market.

I understand it’s already come to Android auto, with TomTom Go running on CarPlay it seems bizarre that TomTom AmiGO doesn’t.

With so much pressure on TomTom from other apps I find it a bizarre business model to be so slow with implementation of features.

    Hi @Sky_Lord

    Unfortunately, AmiGO doesn’t support CarPlay as yet, We have plans to do this integration in the near future, will keep you posted once we know more.

    "near future" is... when? 1 2 3 or 6 months? Another age?

    If you want to take over users of Waze/Google Maps, the presence of CarPlay is crucial. TT GO Navigation is ideal for turn by turn navigation, AmiGo can be used perfectly for commuting. The input of notifications via AmiGo benefits the other users of turn by turn navigation.
