TomTom GO Navigation
TomTom is known for our sat navs – but did you know that you can enjoy the same premium navigation experience on your smartphone? The TomTom GO Navigation app puts our best maps, offline routes, real-time traffic updates and more right into the palm of your hand – making sure you’re ready for any journey.
TomTom GO Navigation is a GPS navigation app that lets drivers bring the latest TomTom navigation tech anywhere they go. Real-time services and customizable, offline maps offer the experience of online navigation without the need for an internet connection and without draining precious mobile data. Powerful navigation features like precise estimated time of arrival (ETA) calculations, search and alternative routes help drivers get to any destination swiftly and safely. Read on to find out more about all the features packed into this best-in-class sat nav app.



Trusted maps guide the way, even offline


Few things are worse than finding yourself far off the beaten track, then discovering that you have no data connection to plan a route back to more familiar surroundings. To make sure drivers can always find their way, GO Navigation lets them download maps to their device and access them offline – meaning users don’t need a network connection to plan a route. It helps save on mobile data too, so drivers don’t have to worry about hefty data roaming charges after a big road trip.

GO Navigation includes maps for 150+ countries and regions, for smooth journeys to almost any destination. Maps are updated weekly to help users navigate confidently and avoid surprises like newly blocked lanes or active road construction.



Real-time services for smarter, safer travels


No driver wants to get stuck in traffic or be caught out by a speed camera they weren’t expecting. Thanks to connected TomTom services, GO Navigation users don’t have to worry about bumps in the road like these.

Built-in TomTom Traffic keeps drivers updated about actual traffic conditions and alerts them to upcoming congestion on their route. Real-time traffic data also enables GO Navigation to supply highly accurate ETAs and plan efficient routes. The result? Drivers enjoy shorter, more predictable travel times and can easily access alternative routes when needed – saving time, fuel and hassle. Similarly, the app notifies users about upcoming speed cameras – both mobile and fixed – and alerts them if their average speed in a speed camera zone is higher than the legal limit. With these early warnings, drivers can stay both safe and relaxed behind the wheel.



Getting there just got much easier


GO Navigation includes a host of helpful features that make finding and driving to any destination easy and enjoyable. Using TomTom MyDrive, drivers can save and sync their favorite routes and destinations to their GO Navigation app, so they’re always available on the go. Users’ go-to destinations, along with popular attractions and essential Places of Interest (POIs), are stored on the app, so drivers can search for and get directions to important places even when there’s no network connection. Once connected, drivers can search TomTom's full catalogue of destinations, scenic areas and attractions on the way.

Reaching a friend’s place is even easier with the Drive to Contacts feature, which lets drivers plan routes to the addresses of contacts stored in their phone. Likewise, with the Drive to Photo function, users can plan a route to a geotagged photo in their smartphone’s gallery – handy for when you just can’t remember the name of a place.



Navigation that goes anywhere and is made to share


For added convenience and connectivity, GO Navigation works with Apple CarPlay®. Drivers can connect the app to vehicle head units that are compatible with Apple CarPlay and get the same great navigation experience right from the dashboard.

GO Navigation also supports Apple Family Sharing with the Family Plan. This allows users to share their subscription with up to 5 other people at no extra cost, letting the whole family enjoy all that TomTom navigation has to offer.

From road trips to daily commutes, GO Navigation is the ideal companion for any drive. It’s currently available on Google Play, the App Store and Huawei App Gallery – download today and experience how much better the journey gets when you go with TomTom navigation.
