New Tomtom Navigation for Android?

TOMTOM launched a new android application, the Tomtom Navigattion, at the end of last month.

The new application finally brings the NavKit and NDS Maps.

I discovered, by accident, browsing in google play.

Why was there no announcement of this new application?

    TomTom GO Mobile goes by the title of TomTom GPS Navigation Traffic in the Google Play Store. If you find yet another app in Google Play please post a link to it.

    Thanks. Google Play says that app is not available in USA or UK where my Google Play accounts reside but I look forward to learning more about it. Weekly map updates sound great.

    TomTom describes this as a special product for Toyota in a handful of South American countries and mentions no plan to take it worldwide.

    I like the new map more than 'Go Mobile'
    1. It supports NDS maps (finally with real incremental updates?), and possibility to download by country, not by region
    2. Better map and traffic visualization (my own opinion)
    3. It offers some nice new features which are missing in original Go Mobile - TomTom Labs with possibility to use your own TTS engine and voices from the system, clear route icon on the main screen (finally)
    4. it's completely free at the moment :) (I personally have a 3yr license for Go)
    It is available for download in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay Play stores.

    Would be a pity if TomTom has no plans to roll it out it globally (or to update Go Mobile with the same features).
    IMHO, they are testing it now is South America and will sooner or later roll it out globally.

    I don't know why TomTom is stocked to this old nav UI.

    Never a major update, never new graphics, never new UI, never news.

    Good GPS app, but boring and SLOW support and news.......

    I am an Italian taxi driver, I am not a kid.
    And I use TomTom for work.

    TomTom NEED some improvements.
    Is incredible that at 2018 is impossible to scroll the map in navigation mode, the UI is OLD style AND SLOW, the icons on the map are OLD style.
    On 3D navigation mode, TomTom NEED a restyling of traffic visualization, like to add the icons with the time of delay over the traffic strips (like 2D mode).
    Now the traffic strips on the map are TOO flat and hard to see in 3D mode.
    TomTom should add an option to Save our favorite zoom... Is annoying every time i run the app to search my favorite zoom of the map...
    TomTom should give the possibility to REPORT important traffic events by users;
    In Rome, Italy, we have BIG problems with TT traffic.... A lot of closed roads, works or accidents ARE NOT Reported by tt traffic ....

    For example,
    Last beta of Google Maps is Givin this possibility to the users.
    THIS IS THE FUTURE; users like to interact with his favorite App...but TomTom is too "closed" to the users...
    Etc... Etc....

    TomTom NEED improvements, my post is not only a kid circus....
    Now my comment is OK?

    in italy the last minor update was launched at 16 october 2018 and is only a fix for the compatibility of the new android.

    Last major update (i mean new UI, new graphics, new options, some differences.....) is more than 2 years, that is the change from Tomtom Android to......Tomtom Go mobile.

    STOP.

    We are mixing up 2 different version of the Android navigation app. You are referring to the Go app v1.17.7: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tomtom.gplay.navapp
    Where this topic refers to the new TomTom NDS app v1.1.14: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tomtom.gplay.navapp.nds

    I believe the latter is only available in limited number of countries.

    @DCJunior06,

    I was not talking about map updates.
    It was about the update of the TomTom NDS app.
