TomTom today announced that it has released new universal versions of its turn-by-turn GPS applications, bringing native iPad compatibility for the first time. TomTom offers over two dozen localized GPS apps, which now include an enhanced user interface optimized for the iPad.
The TomTom App for iPhone/iPad, version 1.9, features a new map release – a benefit to users of both Apple devices – with updated roads and points of interest.
With this new release, TomTom has made use of the extra iPad screen size. The full-screen display shows both driving view and advanced lane guidance at the same time. Drivers can also switch to driving view with one touch from anywhere within the App, and can access guidance options in a tap.
With TomTom's existing apps now being universal, current users of the iPhone version can simply download the latest update and install the app on both iPhone and iPad free of charge.
