TomTom has updated their popular GPS iPhone app to version 1.3, adding the very useful feature of HD traffic updates to the application. Every three minutes, the app will alert you to any traffic accidents or other delays on your route. Be warned – the traffic update feature will cost an extra $19.99 a year for US subscribers. If you’re a UK user, updates can be purchased per day, month, quarter or year starting at 59p.
The updated app also includes pinching and zooming for maps, Google Local Search for finding restaurants and other businesses, automatic fading of music playing on the iPhone when a voice command is given, and importing locations from other iPhone apps and Internet browsers.
The TomTom App update is available for free for previous owners, and $69.99 for new subscribers.
