TomTom's new mobile application, TomTom GO Ride is tailored to motorcyclists' needs for an easier and better way to plan and navigate thrilling routes, enters open beta.
  • Android 8 or higher
  • iOS will follow later
For now the app is available in English and Spanish. Voice instructions are given in the phone's language.
GO Ride on tomtom.com
Planning a route:
  1. Search for an address or long-tap on the map.
    The app automatically plans a route.
  2. Repeat step 1 to add way points.
  3. Re-order way points by dragging them up or down.
Route types:
  • Fast takes you there ASAP, and avoids unpaved roads.
  • Thrill skips the motorways and prioritises secondary twisty roads. It avoids unpaved roads, motorways, carpools, already used roads.
  • Super Thrill would be like thrill but even more prominent. It prioritises small roads full of curves and fun, considerably increasing the riding time. It avoids unpaved roads, motorways, carpools, already used roads.
Speed
Until we have implemented speed limits, real GPS speed and speed camera warnings, you can use the free TomTom AmiGO app in overlay mode to be shown these.
Install AmiGO from the Play Store and go to Settings > General and activate Speedometer view > Overlay.
Some items from our back log:
  • Translations
  • Speed limits, real GPS speed and speed camera warnings
  • Hybrid maps
  • Landscape mode
  • Km/miles setting
  • Save routes

    I have a range of devices and yet the app says it's not compatible with ANY of them. Can you please tell us what requirements there are for the app?

    If I go to our French product page I get a link to the Play Store. The app is not yet available in French but that will follow.

    Thanks for the list. I passed it on. They are Android 8 or later, right? That's the only compatibility requirement I was given so far.

    Minimum version on any of my devices that I would use for this is Android 9. Most of them are 10 or 12

    And if you try from the Play Store on the phone rather than in a browser? We can see people use the app on some of the phone on your screenshot like Pixel 4 / 5 / 6.

    You can't, because it doesn't exist. Are you limiting country access?
