TomTom GO Navigation App and Siri

Is it possible to make tomtom the default navigation for Siri? If I ask Siri to navigate to an address, it opens Apple Maps. I would like it to go to TOMTOM Go. How can I change that?

    There was talk of it coming in IOS 14 but nothing happened.

    Apple policy is that you should just be happy with apple maps because they’re better than TomTom or google…..and Apple Music because that’s better too….and apple’s Safari…..and Apples Mail

    Cause it’s all better, you probably just don’t realise it, yet.

    Hi ther,

    Welcome to the Community! You can set up the Siri Shortcuts for GO App, see the steps below:
    • Open Shortcuts
    • Create a New Shortcut
    • Add Actions available under Apps > TomTom GO
    • Name the Shortcut
    • Say "Hey, Siri <<Shortcut>> and it should work 

    Best, lampard

    Hi Lampard
    Followed your instructions to get Siri Shortcuts
    When I subsequently open the TomTom (IO14.71) app it says
    ‘No Siri Shortcuts active’
    Doh ..
    Pls advice

    Hi Doug
    Thank you for a very detailed description
    which I followed but no joy
    Maybe it’s because my TT is the Danish version?
