Hello TomTom,
Will TomTom Go for Android be supporting Android Auto in near future?

I found this link provided by Lampard, but unfortunately it's a dead one...

    Hi @954dk

    The link above has been removed due to overwhelming response for the invites. I'll certainly post back here once there is any news about Android Auto support.

    Thanks, lampard

    From another 3rd party GPS app.

    I quote:

    "For now, the situation is clear: only selected developers can publish their apps on CarPlay and Android Auto platforms. We have tried to get into discussions with Apple and Google, and we are still asking for their software development kits to provide you with an alternative offline navigation experience on both platforms. To date however, we are still not one of the few, nor is any other navigation developer, which means users are forced to use only one default navigation - Apple Maps or Google Maps."

    It is up to the user's who want to use CarPlay or Android Auto platforms to put pressure on Google to open up the software for 3rd party GPS apps.

    Here are the links to send your messages too.

    For Android:

    For Apple

    To keep hitting TomTom on the head will not fix this issue at all.

    User's have the power to get Google to change........
