the GPS navigation app is now compatible with cars




The release of map apps is in full swing in Android Auto: after the landing of the AmiGo version, it is now TomTom Go Navigation, the complete mobile application, which new compatibility with the operating system for vehicles. It is available in version 3.1.0 of the aforementioned application.



Being an operating system for vehicles, it was strange that only two applications could be used with the car, Waze and Google Maps; curiously, both from the company that develops Android Auto. This 'monopoly' was broken last March with the release of Sygic Navigation; application followed by TomTom AmiGo. Many missed support for the company's most comprehensive mobile software, TomTom Go Navigation. You no longer have to wait.

Talking about GPS navigators with point-to-point voice guidance implies mentioning TomTom.

Simply connect your mobile to the car as usual (either with the cable or via wireless Android Auto) and you will see that on the vehicle screen you will finally have TomTom Go Navigation accessible.
