TomTom Android app coming 'very soon'

Dutch sat nav giants admit Android app is imminent

The wait for Android smartphone users is almost over as TomTom chief says the company plans to replicate the success of their iOS sat nav app 'very soon'

Android smartphone users will soon be able to get TomTom sat nav services on their mobile phones according to TomTom co-founder Peter-Frans Pauwels who says the Dutch company's Android app will be with us 'very soon'.

TomTom gave no exact launch date or indication on pricing but admitted that a summer launch was important as they attempt to repeat the success of their iOS app on Google Play.

The iOS app doesn't come cheap at £39.99 and you can expect to pay similar on Android.

The app will be tailored specifically for Android but TomTom say we can expect broadly the same feature set that iOS users have been enjoying for some time.

TomTom revealed their plans to reach Android users while also launching a the Map Paradise Project - a worldwide competition that gives people the chance to win dream trips to tropical islands, to help TomTom improve their maps for those locations.
