Reviews From google play store

I have had to reinstall this appalling app several times and have just uninstalled it. I have a HTC U11 which has been constantly crashing. I have removed this problem solved. You Should Be Ashamed Of Yourselves. I cleared all cache including hidden, no change. The problem was created when I blocked phone calls and texts. Prior to that all was fine, apart from the fact that the voice instructions keeps activating and will not turn off. It's also very slow. TomTom used to be better than this.

Even though I need it maybe once or twice a year, this app is ALWAYS RUNNING and keeps putting itself in the foreground anytime Bluetooth is enabled. It's eating about 2% of my battery nonstop. Totally unnecessary. Also, it comes with a builtin map which is utterly useless. Why even include it if you cannot use it properly? The TomTom itself is very nice but this app is only good for one thing: the trash can. Would totally recommend trashing it.

Installed the app for the first time yesterday on OnePlus 6T . With out looking at it or using it at all it has used 21% of my battery in one day (by 3pm!). I haven't even had a chance to use it yet but can't afford to keep it installed if it's going to kill my phone. This app really needs a turn off/on function.

Great when you need it. Rubbish when you are not using it which is most of the time. It sits in the background chewing up your phone battery at over 1% per hour. It is ridiculous there is no off switch. It appears this problem is well known and longstanding. What is Tom Tom doing to fix this?

Alternate routes not sent to device. Please fix this as there is little point of selecting an alternate route in the app that then does not download to the device. Developer responded to review which is good to see. However, given the app only sends the destination to the device and then the user needs to go the device to select alternative routes, you may as well do this all on the device. Unfortunately, not much point to the app, it would seem.

The app itself does updates and route searches fine BUT it is badly behaved. It turns itself on all the time and uses lots of power (currently it has swallowed 38% of my total battery in under 24 hours). It should be easier to control as their are no settings to control the above problems.

Phone icon disappears from time to time. But i am mostly disappointed by the fact that speed cameras can't be saved online, if my phone doesn't connect or there are issues with traffic service I can't check them, and it's not like that fixed cameras move around.. I have a 550 world, which is good apart from this.

The QR scanner doesn't focus to read the QR barcode in order to complete the smartphone connection to my tomtom device. Will there be a future update to rectify this? I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, also set the screen to full brightness but still no improvement. Hopefully an app update will fix the focus adjustment of the scanner.

Kills my phone battery in the background (even note 10) and sat nav is very slow when connected some of the time. Disappointed Edit: some more testing revealed the TomTom go camper is slow often when it starts when not connected. It takes over 2 minutes to respond to a key press. The device is new and has had 2 system updates since I bought the device a month ago.

The app works in that it allows your TomTom Rider to connect and receive traffic information, but... when you install this app it constantly runs in the background, consuming memory and battery power and always shows a notification "Connect your TomTom device" even if you have no intention to use it. Why they couldn't simple add an option to close the app is beyond me, killing the app doesn't really work and it automatically starts when you power on your phone. I now delete the app after use.

The app won't connect to my device VIA 52, it works the other way the VIA can see my phone and says it's connected, but when I go to connect in the app on my phone I am taken through the connection stages and it asks for a QR scan, but the VIA doesn't generate a QR code to use. The rest of the app appears to work fine.

Good but i have tried for years now to convince Tom Tom they have the wrong name for the road I have lived on for fifty years and they completely ignore my notifications. This is bad because it means delivery drivers using Tom Tom will never find me! TomTom replied quickly, full marks, I tried the link they sent but it didn't work! I have reported again with new update software in Go 5200 waiting to see how long it takes.

Please please please fix the background battery drain that I constantly get from the app.It is otherwise a brilliant app but I find it such a drain when not in use which must be fixable now especially with the amount of other people having the same problem.i have been in contact with tomtom directly and all advise was basic and didn't solve the problem.It has happened on all my recent phones and now I have the same problem on note 9.i can't even force close the app to stop it...Fix it PLEASE

App constantly on using large amount of battery power. No way to switch it off until it is needed, in my case very occasionally. Will uninstall till needed, but very inconvenient way of doing things.

TomTom Communication Service reports continually "Connect your TomTom device". Communication between device and phone is very poor. Sending routes from app to sat nav sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I wish I had stayed with an app sat nav ,rather than buy the GO Premium 6.

I have to constantly manually connect my phone to my go520 for traffic updates as it never connects automatically. It connects for calls and messages but not for live traffic which is very annoying Thanks for the feedback. This seems to have worked. Thank you

When you lose connection between phone and tom tom its a pain to try and reconnect basically uninstall and reinstall just so blue tooth works. Need an easyer way to add phone as its lame the way it is now, far to complicated. And now will not uninstall from phone OMG why. will try thanks

Very disappointed as I am unable to connect new Xperia M4 via QR scan. Everytime I try I get "An error occurred please try later". Help forums not helping to find solution. Camera enabled, bluetooth enabled etc. An older Xperia did connect in the past.

As good as the units are being a teicker I like to plan my route when this my drive app was launched I thought great idea i can now plan my routes and send it to my 6250 but no your limited to what roads you can use just like the tomtom when you re calculate your route what a waste of time effort and money absolute junk you've had 4 yes to sort this out and done nothing your just happy selling your units to the public and map corrections were easy to do on the 5150 but you cant do them on 6250

This app drains my batter massively even when put to sleep. In a day it's the largest consumer of batter at over 25% and I've found my phone is dying before the working day is over since installing it so I'm afraid it's going to have to be uninstalled.

DO NOT BUY TOMTOM!! Their customer service is absolutely useless!!... called several times to get a password reset email am having trouble with this...but no reply on the phone, no replies to all my emails. Cannot connect to mydrive without password reset email sent to my inbox. NO ONE FROM TOMTOM CUSTOMER SERVICE WILL HELP YOU AT ALL....RUBBISH. WHY BRING OUT A PRODUCT IF YOU CANT EVEN GIVE ANY CUSTOMER CARE SUPPORT. BUY ANOTHER MAKE!

Missing items e.g import gpx, itn files. Route creating takes a lot of patience since creating points on the route via dragging is not always working. The competitor Garmin has a more complete application in this respect.

Android Pie Can no longer access traffic (bluetooth teacher) successfully (hit and miss) on my older TomTom Go 500, rendered useless d due to lack of support.

I used the old version of this app with an S7 but was unable to connect for data for travel on my Tom Tom 520 with my S8. The suggested fix is to update the software but I am using April 2019 version. calls and texts work, but it's the travel info I need. UPDATE Effected a fix by resetting the TomTom device and restoring factory settings. Not sure what the issue was but this occurred after an update to the TomTom itself. Blue tooth connection is unreliable and requires turning off and on. Sad.

I have used this App for many years and find it is great when it works, but when a new update arrives and you have to log back into your account, I get told there is a constant error, or that the password is incorrect even though I know it is fine!! Very frustrating, please sort it out Tomtom.

Often tells me the phone is out of range when using the tomtom my drive in the car or no internet or unable to connect or the app needs updating when it is the latest..... every excuse really.

Suddenly cannot send location to GPS. Anyone encounter this? I cannot send location to go 520 using the app. Is this an error? Have been followed few updates.

Hello! The app is very nice and useful. My only problem is that I cannot see my messages and notifications from the phone in the tomtom device. I have turned on all the relevant permissions but still it's not working. Any ideas how to fix this? Thank you!

Can't connect to TomTom device, when I try and scan the QR code it's out of focus. Camera works fine in all other apps on the phone

Great idea but not sure why it uses 25% of my battery use even when I'm not using it. I have a OnePlus 5 with the latest Android.

Not good, never been able to connect to my tom tom for data and traffic services, which was the sole reason for purchase

seems to be updating faster since updates, but still can't see if it has updated without checking google maps. A indication that it has finished updating would be very helpful and make it more useable and reliable.

i regret moving from garmin to tom tom. i bought a top of the range rider550 and its very good, but i do most of my route planning on a pc and transfer to the device and MyDrive cant even send routes to the rider it sends tracks which you cant deviate from, or a list of stops which the device makes its own route from but then its not the route you wanted. The advice from tom tom below is just a link to FAQs and a forum which just tells me this is a glitch that tom tom arent in a hurry to fix

Everything works. Just one thing is it possible to add to a planning route a search function from my places. Such as when I want two go to two friends all i need to do is to search friend 1 and then add friend two and send it to the device hopefully you understood me :)

The app drains the phones battery even if you don't use the app. (Galaxy note 8) The app can't be exited or turned off. I've had the app installed for 5 days, but will be uninstalling it now.

TomTom Go 520 will not stay connected to Alcatel 3 for traffic. Garmin has no problem.

This app needs a switch off power button. it's .ridiculous that it can't be turned off

Brilliant app but there isn't a satellite map option. This would improve the app massively.

If only the app could rotate to landscape view I would have given it 5 stars.

It's a great app on android but since my latest version apple 13.1.3 on my iPhone it won't transfer data through bluetooth??

Very good app, and now power usage is down to almost nothing when not used. Thank you very much.

Shows it is connected, does not sync with device. Helpless.

it would be great if my places could be grouped in folders and the folders are ex- and imported. so i could create a folder named NewYork an another named Sydney an organize all poi.

All devices stopped syncing for 2 weeks. Was in process of composing email but double checked and all devices seem to be ok again, ?? Love it when it is working. pay £270 for a good satnav but yet have to use an app and your own data forthe live traffic!! thats when the 620 will connect via bluetooth...complete waste of time!! il never buy tomtom again dont waste your time.........

Please can you make it Google earth view so we can spot the location more easily. Hope you consider this! Thanks alot

Won't connect to phone just keeps saying an error occurred please try again ..can't use satnav for calls,mesages or traffic !!

Many problems to link with my phone with the tomtom 520

I do not like the fact that this app starts up with the phone and runs in the background with nonoption to turn it off except to force close it.

Limited functionality on my Samsung tablet. Menus do not display correctly

Sorted, working perfectly now. Thank you.

Not what I was looking for. I use route finding only occasionally. It isn't clear whether TomTom even gives me more than a map to print out. Google Maps does what I want, without needing a separate app. The average rating of only 3 put me off as well. Germany can do better. I may have the wrong product. Is there one similar to what Google Maps offers?

Firstly, because this app is running constantly in the background, it runs the battery down at an alarming rate, so it's far better to update directly from my Tomtom device Secondly, I recently replaced my Tomtom One, which I've had for years but is no longer supported with a Go Premium X. Although there are several useful features on the new device, new voices cannot be downloaded, the volume on traffic warning signs cannot be adjusted and all the traffic warning signs have the same sound

I have a chuckle reading all these people with battery draining problems on their mobiles after installing the app, even if you are not using it. This problem has been around for at least 2 years on my Pixel2. Do a search on the official TomTom forum. Everytime the TomTom response is the same, turn off wifi, Bluetooth etc etc. After having had tomtom devices for at least 10 years, this will be my last. Google is looking pretty good these days..... Good luck getting the draining problem fixed.

Worked ok but now won't connect to go professional 520

As stated by others, the amount of battery this app consumes when not even in use is crazy (more than double any other app, including those I use regularly,). It needs to be changed so it can be set to never run in the background, only when opened deliberately. Had no choice but to uninstall it.

As a functional app, I thought it worked brilliantly, doing everything I needed it to do. However, it would absolutely destroy my phone battery. It was so bad that I've un-installed it as my phone would not last a full day. (It lasts just shy of three days now)

Great when it works. I have to use it to connect my TomTom rider 550 to my phone via Bluetooth. I have found on numerous occasions that I have to delete the app and re-install it then set it up for it to work again. I also found that I have to keep it open in the background for it to connect when I turn the GPS on meaning even while not in use it is consuming battery power. Tomtom please add the option to upload GPX files from ones phone to the app. Please look into these issue.

This app is nice, but when i check my battery it is almost consuming around 20 % on daily basis.. even if u r not using also it is comsuming the battery very bady, it would be great if tom tom can fix this iisue.

Unreliable connection with TomTom device & traffic services. I spend more time trying to get the TomTom device to actually connect with the app than actually planning trips. The device randomly unpairs with the phone and even when bluetooth connection is established and Bluetooth tethering is on, the app often can't recognize the device. Unusable and I will be asking TomTom for a refund if I cant find a fix soon. Not recommended at all before TomTom fixes it. edit: Tried suggestions, no luck.

Since receiving help it all works great again this is my 3rd tom-tom and think there great

Recently my data connection between phone and Go520 has been lost and I have spent hours trying to get the two talking together again by wifi or Bluetooth without success.

cached traffic jams persist and are not cleared. Manually clearing all data works but you have to do it all the time and it's not just this phone as had similar issue on my previous phone. Trash application. Also displays jams all over the place with the circles that need tapping to see the delay, displayed randomly in other parts of the map etc

There are no words! It keeps disconnecting from my phone every 5 seconds. No way to put your own "home" address in the search. No way to search through "my places". On top of that every 5 minutes my sat nav makes a decision that my android phone isn't actually android and stops some features. This app needs a million improvements. So much money paid for the new device and it's not working correctly! This is extremely frustrating.

this thing keeps nagging me in the notifications bar. no obvious reason. Can't be dismissed. Doesn't even open the app. Uninstalling. TomTom I contacted support like you asked. it was a painful experience. they promised to mail me back the next day then they never did. if I could go down to zero stars I would.

The sat nav itself is much better than older ones but my galaxy S8 connects, via this app, for hands free calls and messages but refuses to connect for traffic updates which is the main reason I bought this sat nav. I've tried following the app's instructions but it just won't connect for traffic. Rather disappointed and may have to return the devices itself.

3 stars for a useful product idea, 2 stars missing for its problems. We still use our Mobile GO. It's practical. But installing MyDrive prevented GO from opening. Removed MyDrive and GO is again working. A shame for I thought using MyDrive on the web ideal plan this year's tour. Looks like using Google maps again. Thank you TomTom for replying. I used your web-link, logged in, selected support, etc., etc... went to "write a new email" and repeatedly got "unable to perform this action, please refresh the page and try again" Try again?

Very handy to have when the sync working

Needs way to many privileges. Why does it need to read my call log and make phone calls. Can't connect to you own tomtom device without it. Ridiculous! Will try Garmin because I refuse to accept the permissions. As to the comment of Tomtom: please make your features optional so you can use the app without giving your phone away.

😩 if there was Zero Stars... Tomtom gives the same excuses. If you want more explanation and details, give your Customers an email address to respond. Otherwise don't make trivial statements! DON'T BOTHER DOWNLOADER THIS APP. It doesn't work at all ln Huawei P30 Pro

Absolutely useless. Does not show traffic on my Go620. Go620 has never shown traffic connected nor connection to my account in spite of being logged in. So what's the point? I should have just bought a basic device without any traffic function. No, still no good. Support suggested the same solution too.

Seems to consume about 20% of the battery charge even when not being used. With my tomtom 5200 all I really needed it for is SMS. That was not worth the battery problem, hence I have uninstalled it. An unbundled app would be much better, especially if I could install SMS support only.

Amazing TomTom. Very good any here.

its looks like tom tom never test this app for connections and pairing with external tomtom devices. very unreliable app. i am truck driver and this app should be perfect for me to plan my route in evening then send to devise.BUT ITS NOT crashing every time when you reopening the app.. PLEASE PLEASE FIX IT

started off well for two days. I like being able to plan the route on my phone and then send the route to the Tom tom satnav go basic and away I go on my journey. this saves time. however as I said, good for two days after purchasing the sat nav. now it keeps saying it's not available and they can't connect right now so very disappointing. I'm not sure if it's the app or if it's a problem with the satnav.

The biggest problem with this app is that you can"t export your favourite places so over time they get more and more. The search function often doesn't find what you're looking for. Otherwise it is just about usable.

The functionality is ok but drains the battery to much even in the background. The app run in the background for about 9 hours and 5 min in the foreground. In this time it ate about 15% of the battery.

Will not connect to phone via bluetooth for live traffic ( only phone calls) and have to delete phone and reinstall everytime I used it so I just gave up and deleted the app. Giving 3 stars because it is good when it works which is very little!

This is the worst app ever. Nothing matches with what is on my screen. Waste of money and time. I have tried support and posted a question but have received no reply. The digital assistant there also goes in circles and never answers my questions.

worst £250 spent on a so called tom tom professional sat nav,very occasionaly it will connect to give traffic updates,if you watch the bluetooth settings just shows connecting then cant connect,tried different phones makes no difference,wish i had stuck with Garmin.

Seems faily decent, was easy to connect to Go 620 on two phones. Only issue is it insists on permanently running in the background even when not connected to the 620, wastes a bit of battery and stuck with a permanent notification

Had to uninstall it, was sucking up anywhere from 25-40% of my battery throughout the day even when not using it! Even with background restrictions turned on it kept running and I couldn't force stop it. Xperia XZ2. Android 9 , 1/June/2019 Security Update

This app runs in the background and drains your battery as well as data. Why can you stop the app from doing that.

The app kept jamming (after normal use over 2 years) so I removed it and reinstalled it. It still jams. Nothing else doesn't work on my phone so it has to be a one-star rating.

Planning my trips on the laptop and sending them to my phone is so easy.

Sharing routes does not work when opened with the app, three dots at the bottom will load continuously. Making sharing routes (the reason why we both purchased a rider 500) pointless. Please fix.

Where is the search ability in My Places? If I have an extensive list, I have to scroll through and read each one. That is not practical! Also, I've reported road closures on several occasions. If TomTom don't want to share this information with the community, then at least let my device know of these road changes, instead of routing me to the same road which is closed. These two points makes my experience tedious. Thank you.

Annoyingly on all the time, draining my phone battery. Why can't I just launch this app when I will be driving? Please update the app asap so it can be used only when needed. Cameron - sadly your response isn't accurate. If you just close the app in the normal way it continues to run in the background, my phone keeps producing messages asking me to connect to the sat nav, and messages telling me the app is draining my battery. The only way to stop it is to go through various settings screens and press "Force Stop" . And if I turn bluetooth on or off the app returns regardless of whether I have stopped it- this is really annoying! I feel like uninstalling the whole thing.

Works well, but there is room for improvement. When planning a route locations saved in 'my places' do not appear in the search results. You cannot use the app to edit the name of a location in 'my places' once it has been saved, you can edit it on the device itself though. Also no way of uploading GPX files through the app, but this can be done through the website.

Very buggy. Fails to load My Roads from Tomtom MyDrive. Needs to log off and log in again but sometimes does not work even then. As the app only purpose is to create or modify routes, it renders it pretty useless.

Have to use this app for the in car device to receive traffic alerts. That's all I want it for. This app soaks battery power. It is ridiculous! Also, you find an address on the device, correct number in the road, and the app decides to store it as a different number. I'm getting my Garmin repaired and should never have ventured back to TomTom that I rejected years ago.

Functionality is OK but having it run all the time using up power is very bad design. I shouldn't need to kill the app whenever I am not using it. Please fix asap, TomTom. edit: Closing the app as recommended by TomTom does not stop it. It continues running in the background and uses power. It needs a rewrite so that it does not start automatically and shuts down properly. Edit: OK, after the last update it restarts every time it is force stopped. Changed review to 1/5. Uninstalling.

Overall not a bad app I would have given it 4 but deducted 2 due to the really annoying feature of automatically zooming back to your current location every single time you go back to the app or if your screen locks, even if you're not navigating. Makes trying to use it to monitor an area on your route before you set off really difficult. an option to enable/disable this would be useful.

Having had this app for 6 months, it has got much better apart from the same 2 fundamental problems. 1. Why does the app autostart when phone is switched on? It has to be force closed twice to stop it running! It should only run on demand when required. 2. Live traffic connectivity with the device is flaky. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, so it's not reliable. What should work seamlessly take twice as long as it should. Please resolve these fundamental issues TomTom.

Rubbish!! Trying to login... Nope wont let me !! Trying to reset password nope wont let me!!!! My truck satnav is aweful, sending me round and round and into some bad situations... Always had Tom Tom car navs and found them great but your truck ones are aweful tbh sorry...

After each update app cannot connect with a Navi and with a TomTom servers. Obviously all via-phone services like Traffic do not work. The only way to go around is to uninstall the app and install it from a scratch...After LAST UPDATE I have pop up messages from TomTom app every minute or two. I click on them but nothing is happening. After some time quiet and then again. Annoying. BTW, can you help instead of redirecting us to the useless TomTom customer support?

Since the app was updated on 18-12-18, every time I start either the car or truck engine, when the sat nav isn't switched on or even in the vehicle I am in, I get a notification to connect to the device. Also when driving using the sat nav it keeps disconnecting and have to keep reconnecting. None of this happened before the update, just had automatic connection.

Data connectivity is very poor. there is no consistency when it comes to data connectivity with phone. Hence i have trouble getting speed camera and traffic updates. I have lifetime map ans speed camera updates. Bluetooth connection is always established within few seconds, but not data. this is bit annoying sometimes to set up this everytime before starting trip. Suggest any solutions if you have...

I have a new phone (Huawei P20 Pro) and have tried to connect it to my TomTom Go 520 for traffic data without success. Ironically the phone connects for voice calls but not the most useful part i.e. live updates and alternate routes. Why have I wasted so much time and money on the Go 520 satnavand this useless app. I have had several advice messages from TomTom before, but basically this piece of kit is not fit for purpose. A decent company would either make their tech work or refund me so I can but something that does work.

I am not sure if its the app that is the problem or my new rider 550. Just purchased a 550, needed this app to find my phone. From scratch everything is working. I turn off 550 then go to use it. Start the app turn on my 550 and Bluetooth is not seen on the app even though my phone says its connected. On the Bluetooth setting on my 550 the status is connecting, not connected and repeats. I have to reset my phones network settings for it to work again. Help I'm away in 3 weeks. Tried 2 phones.
