APP WATCH: Updated TomTom 1.5 App for iPhone

We heard it was incoming, now TomTom has confirmed details of its updated app for the iPhone, with a host of new and improved features heading your way.

The version number is 1.5, with the list of new features headed up by Navigate-to-photo, allowing you to select a photo in your iPhone gallery and using geo-tags, the app will show you the way to it. Clever stuff. Just don't show it an image of a lighthouse.

It's also optimised for the iPhone 4, which means high resolution graphics, sharper maps, more-responsive menus and improved positioning even in areas with limited GPS reception. There's also what is are described as the 'most up-to-date maps', taking into account 15 per cent of roads changing every year.

Also here are all the features you know and love, including the option of the heavily-updated HD Traffic service, along with IQ Routes, which uses 'real' user data for an accurate estimate of your journey time, turn-by-turn spoken directions, advanced lane guidance, local Google searches for points of interest and as it's for the iPhone 4, multitasking. Don't think about playing games as you drive though, that's neither sensible or legal.

Grab it from the App Store now, with TomTom Western Europe and UK apps priced at £42.99.  TomTom HD Traffic is an optional subscription-based service.
