TomTom's Android app finally supports premiums Android handsets. The v1.1 update, released today, adds support for screen resolutions up to 1280 x 800 which means owners of premium handsets such as the Samsung Galaxy S3, HTX One X and Google Nexus 4 can now run the app.

Other updates include a better download manager, map data is now stored on SD card (where available) and improved postcode entry. Features such as IQ Routes and Lifetime Map updates are included in the app purchase and HD Traffic is available as a premium subscription service.

The update also means that 7" tablets such as the Google Nexus 7 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 also now support the app.

I tested it today and its not that bad, as a first release for hi-res. Still a long way to go to make it as fluid and as good as the iphone version. I can see myself using this version. The version before it on a hi-res screen was just too laggy and slow but this one is fine

I don't think it supports the Nexus 7, or at least officially, because I cannot update mine via Google Play. I also noticed that the app is now copy protected making it difficult to back-up & sideload to another device.

I don't know if it's possible to move the apk file still because the only one I can see is the original v1 from November. Maybe an uninstall & full download would produce one?

Same thing for me and I made comment on Darren's original post about a 7" Tablet being the perfect SatNav and he commented on there that he has the same problem also, but that he would make enquiries into the situation.

Hopefully there will be some news in the near future.

I have asked TomTom and they're looking into this issue. 1200 x 800 is supported and the Nexus 7, and other 7" tablets, should be supported. As soon as I have more information I'll post an update in this thread.

Thanks Darren - Have just posted a similar question on the TT forum as there was a discussion running. Will make for interesting reading to see how they respond to the question on their own site.

Don't hold your breath - that's a discussions site, not an answers site!

Couldn't agree more Dennis but that is where Ditte from the staff made an announcement on the release, so I saw it as reasonable to bounce it back at him

TomTom have confirmed that this is a Google Play issue which they are investigating. It does support Nexus 7 and other similar 7" tablets. They are trying to figure out why this issue is occurring.

Glad I only had to hold my breath for 2 hours then Dennis. The response was: "Nexus 7 compatibility is something we're looking into at the moment - version 1.1 is supposed to be compatible. Kenneth"

Darren must have got his info update an hour or so before TT posted to their forum, so here's hoping.

Just to save future embarassment, Ditte is a her not a him. She and Kenneth usually post that "We/our technicians are looking into it and we'll keep you posted. Thank you for your feedback." - I think you'll find this is one such post. Twisted Evil

My apologies to Ditte and thank you for the correction Dennis.

To be fair Dennis, Dite's answer matches what I have been told, i.e. that Nexus 7 is supported by the new update and they're looking into the Google Play issue.

Reasonably impressed with the release on a HTC One X. The HD traffic connection needs working on, if you lose the data connection it seems to take an age to reconnect.

One oddity is the HD traffic menu, I have managed to get into it a couple of times from the traffic sidebar, but 99 times out of 100 I get into the Delay on route screen. Also, it doesn't have icons for everything?

I used to find the Home to Work feature useful, which seems to be hidden in a menu I can't get in to and isn't mentioned in the manual.
