tomtom for ipad
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.

I don't think it's been broken, sometimes you need to restore it after upgrading the app or OS. To do that go into:

TomTom Shop->Traffic and then select Restore Purchases

You must have missed the whole episode.

Those of us who have been using the iOS 5 betas have been unable to restore our purchases for over four months. And that's fine - betas are unsupported, yadda, yadda.

But TomTom was SUPPOSED to be using that time to fix their app so that it would be compatible with iOS 5 on day 1. Instead, not only did they not have a compatible app on day 1, but inquiries to their tech support staff would return inapplicable canned responses. A couple days later when they finally realized what was wrong, they started telling everyone an update would be available "soon."

So they bungled it on just about every level conceivable.

This is not a 99 cent fart-noise app, either. This app costs real money. The fact that it doesn't have real support is inexcusable.

be careful though, they say that the wifi only iPad will not work without any remote GPS receiver.

*** MORE INFORMATION ***
The TomTom App requires a GPS signal. iPad Wifi + 3G models have an internal GPS. iPad Wifi only models and iPod touch 2nd gen. and higher require an external GPS receiver.

TomTom has got it right.... finally

I've used this app since it was released and it's had mostly interface shortcomings but the core gps functionality was good. But now... with v 1.9 and iPad graphics it's awesome!

Thanks TomTom.

I've been using Magellan and TomTom on both an AT&T and Verizon iPhone 4. No real problems with GPS lock (other than a driver bug on the Verizon iPhone that got fixed with 5.0 for me).

So that's what happened with the Verizon iPhone 4's GPS issue. For months, GPS was virtually usless on my Verizon iPhone 4. I took it to Apple twice -- the first time they exchanged it, the second time a Genius told me it was because Verizon's 3G network couldn't download data fast enough (wrong, of course). After the 5.0 iOS update, GPS works like it should. Glad I decided not to spring for the TomTom car kit.

I just returned from travels in Switzerland, France and Germany, where I used TomTom GPS on my iPhone 4 extensively (cellular data turned off) in both driving and walking modes. Worked very well.
