Hefty download (over 1 GB)

4 agree

Expensive for an app

4 agree

No text-to-speech functionality

3 agree

Uses quite a bit of battery, so you pretty much have to tether it to a charger

3 agree

Will stop navigation when user switches to another application (iPhone OS still lacks multitasking!). GPS fix has to be re-aquired when switching back to navigation. Not TomTom's fault, but anyway, consider this.

2 agree

No substitue for the robustness of an actual car GPS

TomTom is a GPS navigation app for the iPhone 3G or 3GS. This application utilizes the GPS positioning system built into the iPhone and is capable of giving users turn-by-turn directions throughout North America. The TomTom app works in both landscape and portrait mode, and will read aloud driving directions as you go. However, this app lacks text-to-speech, meaning it does not read street names or numbers. Both 2D and 3D maps can be displayed, along with “IQ Routes” which provide the user with the best route according to data provided by other TomTom users. This application also gives drivers direct access to contacts already saved in the iPhone’s address book. The TomTom app uses battery power rather quickly, so it is generally recommended to use an in-car charger as well. The TomTom app is a 1.21 GB download, and can be purchased for $99.99 through the iTunes Store.
