TomTom began offering GPS navigation all the way back in 2002. They started off with a Windows CE powered PDA (Personal Digital Assistant if you’re too young to know what those were). Since then they have been continually mapping out the entire world, in fact TomTom is the main provider of map data for Apple Maps after they stopped using Google Maps.

With the addition of CarPlay support the app has been renamed TomTom Go Navigation and features lane guidance, alternate route advice and customizable offline maps so you don’t have to use your cell phone data plan.

While TomTom may provide Apple Maps with a fair amount of data, the TomTom app is not free. They do offer a free trail but after that expires you will need to sign up for a subscription plan that has three options. One month is $1.99, three months is $4.99 and six months is $8.99. When it comes down to it though, the free options of Apple Maps, Waze and Google Maps is probably everything the average user would need.
