AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS --- TomTom announced that its iPhone navigation application can be purchased in the Apple iTunes App Store beginning this week. 

"With TomTom for iPhone, millions of iPhone users can now benefit from the same easy-to-use and intuitive interface, turn-by-turn spoken navigation and unique routing technology that our 30 million portable navigation device users rely on every day," said Corinne Vigreux, managing director of TomTom.  

Instead of using travel time assumptions, IQ Routes technology bases its routes on the actual experience of millions of TomTom drivers to calculate the fastest route.

The application features: 

  • Navigation software including fast route planning and clear voice instructions
  • Automatic re-routing if a turn is missed
  • Route demo or map of route when trip planning
  • Latest Tele Atlas maps of the U.S., Canada, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
