LAS VEGAS--TomTom's iOS app for iPhone and iPad devices is about to get a helping of the same social-networking love that surprised us in the Go Live 1535M navigation device...and then some.
The new update to the TomTom App, version 1.10, gains integration with Facebook and Twitter, allowing users to share destinations and arrival times via the social networks, SMS text messages, and e-mail. Users can also access their Facebook places, events, and friends as potential destinations for turn-by-turn navigation--even the 1535M PND can't pull off that last trick.
Like previous versions of the TomTom App, version 1.10 features locally stored maps, TomTom's IQ Routes turn-by-turn routing engine, Google search integration, access to TomTom's HD Traffic service, and in-app access to iPod audio, contacts, e-mail, calendar, and photos. Look for the update to the TomTom App to hit the iTunes App Store in the first quarter of this year.
