TomTom, recently released the TomTom Mobile 5 for Smartphones which was available since April as an upgrade for TomTom Mobile 4 customers.
The TomTom Mobile 5 includes the latest software with enhanced features and an updated set of the maps pre-installed on a memory card (GPS receiver not included).
The latest maps with enhanced coverage and greater detail include thousands of Points of Interest such as Petrol Stations, Parking, Restaurants, Hotels and Cash Dispensers.
The latest software includes the following new features:
- Find the quickest route with an estimated time of arrival
- Route planning: for fastest, shortest, pedestrian, bicycle and moped routes
- Postcode support (UK & Netherlands only)
- Full integration into the mobile phone menu which allows navigation to a destination from the contacts stored in a mobile phone
- TomTom PLUS services: real-time traffic support, up-to-date weather information and more
- Full itinerary support - plan routes to multiple destinations and add stopping points on the journey
It's available from TomTom and resellers for around 249,00 Euro. Unfortunately it seems TomTom has some shipping backlogs since they announced a minimum of 5 weeks delivery time.
