TomTom iPhone Navigation App Update Pending TomTom iPhone App To Gain Advanced Lane Guidance & Text to Speech Capabilities

With NAVIGON having already released an update for their MobileNavigator
iPhone App which brings Traffic Live updates to US based users, TomTom
have announced that they are set to offer an update to their own iPhone
navigation app which is set to be made available for free any day now
assuming it passes Apple s review procedures.
Submitted to Apple yesterday and now currently awaiting approval before
hitting the App Store, the TomTom iPone navigation app update offers the
following advanced features:
Advanced lane guidance giving drivers extra clarity when navigating
difficult junctions. For the first time this is in both landscape and
portrait mode.
Text-to-speech helping motorists to keep their eyes on the road by
enabling street names and places to be read aloud as part of the spoken
instructions.
Help Me providing direct access to emergency numbers and directions
to the nearest emergency providers.
Updated map and safety camera database.
Customizable audio warnings when approaching safety cameras or driving
over the speed limit, increasing driver safety and saving money.
iPod player control ensuring drivers can conveniently control their
music from within the application.
The TomTom app for iPhone is a priority for us and we are committed to
both its long term development and everyday improvements, said Benoit
Simeray, TomTom's senior vice president, On-board Mobile. Current and
future customers of our application for the iPhone can count on more
great updates from TomTom for free.
The update is set to be made available specifically for users based in
the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Netherlands,
Luxembourg, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy,
Spain, Portugal, Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Australia and New
Zealand with Safety Camera information billed as being available only in
a number of European counties, specifically including Austria, Belgium,
