TomTom Navigation gets an update to support more devices, but still expensive

Navigation pioneer TomTom has recently updated its app to support more than 200 new Android devicesРwhich is more than what was seen in the original app. The update includes some important features such as the ability to save map data to your SD card and a redesigned driving view to make key information more  accessible. New supported devices include the Samsung Galaxy S III, HTC One X, LG Optimus G and other smartphones with a screen resolution between 800 x 480 pixels and 1280 x 800 pixels.

TomTom’s Android app will run you about 38 bucks, while the various subscription packs costs anywhere between $43 and $75 depending on your region. I’m not sure why anyone would fork over that much cash when Google Navigation offers a free and outstanding solution. I suppose it makes sense for regions that are still not covered by Google Navigation. Hit the source link below to pick up the app for your region.

Well, that’s changing today as Google has announced that Google Maps Navigation is now available to users in Mexico, albeit in beta.
