Well it’s about time that TomTom got to Android isn’t it? I miss having TomTom on my phone, I had it on my old Windows phone and then I used Navigon on my Android, but that Android phone is gone and now I use the HTC Titan Windows Phone which I don’t think it’s available for yet. I wonder how long it will take? Anyway, it’s $37.99 and you’ll need at least 3.7 gb of space free on your phone for the app and maps to go with it. Time to upgrade that memory card I think!
