Getting Started

Start TomTom Navigation app for iPhone/iPad

Tap this button on your iPhone, iPod or iPad to start TomTom app.

TomTom

The language used for buttons and menus in TomTom app is the same as the language you selected in your Apple device settings.

If a route is already planned TomTom app shows the driving view , and

navigation starts immediately. If no route is planned the main menu is

shown.

TomTom app works in the same way on the iPhone, the iPod touch and the iPad. The iPad has a

much larger screen which means that menus appear on the driving view instead of as full-screen

menus.

Starting for the first time

When you start TomTom app for the first time or after a reset , you will see the following screens:

Legal notice - You must read and agree to the Legal notice before you can use TomTom app.

Voice Download - If your TomTom App supports Advanced voices in your language you are

given the option to download an Advanced voice .

Information Sharing - To use many of the features in TomTom app you must share information about you and your device. You must read the details about how each feature uses your information. Tap Yes to allow your information to be shared. If you do not agree to share your information the features will not function. If you then later try to use a feature you will see the Information Sharing screen again.

Updating your TomTom Navigation app for iPhone/iPad

If you have an old version of TomTom app on your Apple device, you must update to the latest version of TomTom app before continuing to read this guide.

To download and update your Apple device with the latest version of TomTom app, go to the

Apple App Store.

GPS reception

The iPod touch, the iPad (Wi-Fi only models), and the original iPhone do not include a GPS receiver. To use these devices for navigation, you need to connect them with a GPS accessory device.

Note: Using a GPS accessory device can also improve the accuracy of GPS in other iPhone models.

6

When you first start TomTom app, it may need a few minutes to find your GPS position and show your current location on the map.

To make sure you have good GPS reception, you should use your device outdoors. Large objects such as tall buildings can sometimes interfere with reception.

Important: TomTom app cannot give you route instructions until it has GPS reception.

If your device has no GPS reception, TomTom app uses positioning information from WiFi networks or mobile phone towers. This information is used for route planning and to determine your approximate location.

7

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING DRIVING IN CALIFORNIA AND MINNESOTA

California Vehicle Code Section 26708 "Material Obstructing or Reducing Driver's View" permits mounting of a navigation device on the windshield as follows: "A portable Global Positioning System (GPS), which may be mounted in a seven-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield farthest removed from the driver or in a five-inch square in the lower corner of the windshield nearest to the driver and outside of an airbag deployment zone, if the system is used only for door-to-door navigation while the motor vehicle is being operated." Drivers in California should not use a suction mount on their side or rear windows.

Note: This section of the California Vehicle Code applies to anyone driving in California, not just

California residents.

Minnesota State Legislature Statutes Section 169.71, subdivision 1, section 2 provides that "A person shall not drive or operate with any objects suspended between the driver and the windshield other than sun visors and rearview mirrors and electronic toll collection devices."
