tomtom-iphone-app.gifThe long rumoured and much discussed Tom Tom app for the Apple iPhone and iTouch finally arrives at the iTunes store today. It is on sale for £59.99 loaded with a map of the UK and Ireland and £79.99 if you want Western Europe as well.

The company claims that the app bears all the hallmarks of its popular GPS systems. It includes Tom Tom’s IQ Routes technology which the maker claims is the fastest and most accurate route planning system available. Also on board are a speed camera database, the latest Tele Atlas maps and multiple display options including 3D, night or day and portrait or landscape views.

The app also syncs with the iPhone address book in offering instant access to addresses.

The Tom Tom app faces plenty of rivals though from the likes of Co-Pilot and Navigon.

    I also have a standard Tom Tom but so convenient to have Tom Tom on my iphone.
    My music fades automatically when Tom Tom gives instructions…nice touch.
