TomTom’s newest update to its iPhone App has added the Map Share function, allowing users to make changes instantly to their own maps and to benefit from free map updates made by the TomTom community.

TomTom Map Share enables iPhone App users to

  • Edit street names
  • Set driving directions
  • Block and unblock streets

The TomTom App checks for verified map updates including turn restrictions, speed limit changes and crossing changes automatically every week or on-demand as often as users choose.

Version 1.6 of the app is available now via iTunes, with Western Europe maps priced at £42.99 and UK/Republic of Ireland Apps priced at £39.99.

TomTom App for iPhone runs on iOS 3 and iOS 4, however TomTom suggests users upgrade to iOS 4 to be able to take full advantage of the application’s features.
