    TomTom aims to replace Google Maps with a raft of new updates

    TomTom, one of the OG mapping services, is updating its GO Navigation app so it can better take on the plucky young upstarts such as Google Maps and Apple Maps. TomTom Go Navigation features premium features such as offline maps, live traffic and weekly map updates, and is updated with new features all the time.

    The most recent version, 2.6, is a big update for CarPlay users, as it includes tweaks to improve the experience when the app is running on large screens inside your car.

    The official changelog, reported on by AutoEvolution, for the app states that GO Navigation now displays Route Preview and Route Alternatives, making it easier for users to get a quick look at the route suggested by the app as well as other alternatives.

    TomTom has also added the limited release of My Routes sync with MyDrive in version 2.6, while also bringing improvements for the subscription menu and other bug fixes and refinements for the app.
