I had the western Europe Tom Tom app on my iPhone which was great. my choice of voice, my choice of colour scheme. But I lost it (long story) so downloaded this app as I had subscription to run.
Limited choice of voice, no choice of colour (I liked the one I had, Belgian I think it was called and I find the blue/grey fixed one harder to see) and as others have said, it's sluggish in response.
Unless it improves soon I won't renew my subscription.

Funny they can't support the existing one but they can the one you have to subscribe to. Incidentally the iTunes detail page continues to say "don't worry app and map updates will continue".
This was an expensive download (for iPhone) feel cheated the go version isn't as good and it looks like you will have to pay through the nose for something you thought you'd bought :-(

Seems like TomTom have hit the self destruct button in terms of customer satisfaction https://en.discussions.tomtom.com/tomtom-go-mobile-and-navigation-for-iphoneipad-29/navigation-app-for-iphoneipad-v127-traffic-servers-not-connecting-despite-active-subscription-1020865/index4.html#post1157922

But you can't put 'our' database with proximity alerts on Sygic either. Confused

I've looked into (and got) Sygic on my iPhone. iOS Sygic doesn't support POIs (even though the web site says it does). I'm awaiting a reply back from Sygic to see if they will add custom POI functionality to iOS Sygic.

I believe that Android Sygic can handle custom POIs. Would an Android Sygic use please confirm? I'm not sure whether Android Sygic can handle proximity alerts.

You can always run CamerAlert in the background for audio warnings.

Regards,

I've actually given up using the TomTom now. I find the built in Google navigation excellent. Instructions are so detailed and clear I rarely have to switch my iPhone from the dashcam app to the Google maps to see the map. And you can pre download a map area to save your data alllowance; the whole country if you've enough memory. I haven't on my16GB iPhone, so I switch the download area to suit my journey.
TomTom lagging behind now.

Sygic has dropped POI support from Android as well. I looked into this and found that Mapfactor and Aponia were the only two smartphone/tablet apps that supported your own POIs.

iGo and the others have dropped support for them.
