TomTom does the Robot: the new Android app has advanced lane guidance, historical traffic and IQ Route
Android users have another great navigational software to choose from now. TomTom promised an October release for its Android app, and delivered, as the application just popped up in the Play Store. It will certainly go well with the hands-free car kit for smartphones the navigation company recently announced.

There is one big caveat, though - the app seems to be optimized for the more pedestrian WVGA resolution, rather than the HD screens of today's flagships, so TomTom definitely needs to fix that, and fast.

The application offers offline voice-guided turn-by-turn directions, and numerous other features that might make it stand out against the competition:

Pricing is set at $49.99 for the full North American map, £30.99 for the UK maps, and $74.99 for that Eurotrip experience. For the North American maps set you will need at least 2.3GB free on your mobile device.

HD screens have been the 'it' trend in cell phones for the last 10 months now. Why wouldn't you support that from the get go?

For this price, might as well save a couple more bucks, and purchase a stand alone unit.

which phones/OS-es does this work with?! Not many - is this a Droid-only thing?? Fragmentation at it's finest... I just checked on Play store, and it's not compatible with Jelly Bean (Moto Xoom tablet), ICS (Samsung GS3), Gingerbread (Moto Atrix), or Froyo (older tablets and a phone - didn't count the Logitech Revue lol)
