Getting started

Getstarted

To start the TomTom app, tap the icon in your iPhone.

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

Note

: There are some languages that are not supported by the TomTom app. In this case,

US English is used for buttons and menus in the application.

Updating

If you have a previous version of the TomTom app on your iPhone or iPod touch, you need to update it. To do this, go to the Apple App Store and download your free update before continuing to read this guide.

GPS reception

The iPod touch and some models of the iPhone do not include a GPS receiver. To use these devices for navigation, you need to use them with a GPS accessory, such as the

TomTom car kit.

The car kit includes a GPS receiver, a speaker for playing navigation instructions, and a microphone for making hands-free calls while you are driving. We recommend using the

TomTom car kit with all iPhones and the iPod touch.

For more information, go to

tomtom.com/iphone

.

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

Note:

If your device has no GPS reception, TomTom app uses position information from

WiFi networks or mobile phone towers. This information is used to find your approximate position and for route planning. TomTom app cannot give you route instructions until it has GPS reception.

4. Start to type the name of the place where you want to go.

As you type, the names of the towns that match what you have typed are shown. When your destination appears in the list, tap the name of the town to set the destination.

5. Start to type the name of the street and select it when it is shown.

Just as for place names, the names of the streets that match what you have typed are shown. When your destination appears in the list, tap the name of the street to set the destination.

Finding alternative routes

Once you have planned a route, you may want to change something about the route, without changing your destination. It could be for one of these reasons:

• You can see a roadblock or a line of traffic ahead.

• You want to travel via a particular location, to pick someone up, stop for lunch or fill up with gas.

• You want to avoid a difficult intersection or a road you don’t like.

Find Alternative

To change your route, tap

Find Alternative...

in the

Route Options

menu.

You can open the route options as follows:

• Tap

Route Options

in the Main Menu.

Note

: The

Route Options

button is only shown if you have planned a route.

• Tap

Options

on the Route Summary screen after you plan a route.

• Tap the right hand section of the status bar in the Driving View to open the Route Summary screen, then tap

Options

.

Then select one of the following options:

Minimize Delays

Tap this button to re-plan your route based on the latest traffic information.

This button is only available if you have a subscription to TomTom

Traffic.

Calculate

Alternative

Tap this button to calculate an alternative to the route already planned.

The TomTom app looks for another route from your current location to your destination.

If you decide you would prefer to use the original route after all, tap

Recalculate Original

.

Apart from the roads near your position and near your destination, the new route uses totally different roads to reach your destination.

This is an easy way of calculating a totally different route.

Tap this button to return to the original route. This ignores any previous instructions you have given to avoid roadblocks or travel via a particular location.

Travel Via...

Avoid Part of

Route

Tap this button if you can see a roadblock or a line of traffic ahead.

You then have to choose how much of the route ahead you want to avoid.

Choose from the different options available. The TomTom app recalculates your route avoiding the section of the route for the distance you selected.

Don’t forget that once a new route is calculated, you may have to turn off the road you are on very soon.

If the roadblock suddenly clears, tap

Recalculate Original

to return to your original route.

Tap this button to change your route so that it passes a particular location, perhaps to pick someone up on the way. When you do this, a marker is shown on the map for the location you choose to travel via.

You choose the location you want to pass in the same way as you choose a destination. This means you can select from all the same options that are offered when you choose a destination, for example,

Address

,

Favorite

,

Point of Interest

and

Point on Map

.

The TomTom app will calculate a new route to your destination that passes the location you chose. Unlike your final destination, the

TomTom app does not inform you when you pass by this location.

Tap this button to avoid a part of the route. Use this button if you see that your route includes a road or junction you don’t like, or which is well-known for traffic problems.

You then choose the road you want to avoid from a list of the roads on your route.

Planning a route in advance

You can use the TomTom app to plan a route in advance, selecting your starting point and your destination. You could, for example, do the following:

• Find out how long a trip is going to take before you start.

You can also compare trip times for the same route at different times of the day or on different days of the week. The TomTom app uses IQ Routes when planning a route. IQ

Routes calculates routes based on the real average speeds measured on roads.

• Check the route of a trip you are planning.

• Check a route for someone who is coming to visit you and then explain the route to them.

To plan a route in advance, follow these steps:

1. Tap the screen to bring up the main menu.

2. Tap

Advanced Planning

.

Advanced Planning

3. Select the starting point for your trip in the same way that you would select your destination.

4. Set the destination for your trip.

6. If IQ Routes is supported by your map, you can choose when you will make the journey you are planning. You can set the date and time in 5 minute intervals.

The TomTom app uses IQ Routes to work out the best possible route at that time, using the real average speeds measured on roads. In this way you can compare how long a trip takes at different times of day, or on different days of the week.

7. The TomTom app plans the route between the two locations you selected.

Voice

Tap this option to select the voice used for instructions. The TomTom app has two different kinds of voices:

• Computer voices

The TomTom app makes use of text-to-speech technology to generate computer voices. They provide spoken instructions while you are driving and can pronounce street names and status messages.

A text-to-speech program converts written text, for example an instruction like “Turn right”, into the sound of a human voice.

Note

: Computer voices are not available in all regions or for all languages.

If you select a human voice, this can give instructions but is not able to read street names aloud. If you would like street names to be included with instructions, you need to select a computer voice.

• Human voices

These are recorded by an actor.

When you select a voice, a sample of that voice is played.

You can select a voice in any language. The language used for menus and buttons does not change if you select a voice in a different language.

Speed Limit

Use this setting to warn you when you are driving above the speed limit. You can also choose an alert sound.

Note:

Speed limit alerts should not be relied on exclusively when driving. To ensure you have the latest safety camera information, regularly check the App Store for updates for the TomTom app.

Audio

Tap this option to set the following music and volume options:

Fade Music

Use this setting to fade the music when instructions and warnings are given.

When this setting is off, the music pauses instead of fading when instructions and warnings are given.

Voice Volume

Use this setting to set the volume of voice instructions as a percentage of the music volume. For example, move the slider to the middle of the slider bar to set the volume of voice instructions to be 50% of the music volume.

If the slider is set to off, the music volume and voice volume are set to the same level.

Tip:

The
