Alternative Routes

Alternative routes are one of several Premium Features in Navigator. Before you start on a journey Navigator will calculate three alternative routes (the fastest, shortest or cheapest - depending on your settings) for you to choose from. The routes are all displayed on the map at the same time and you simply select the one that suits you best. You can buy the Alternative routes either separately or together with other Premium features as Mega Pack.

Truck restriction icons

IN-APP PURCHASE

Truck restrictions can be seen as icons directly on the map. If you are driving a truck or a large vehicle, it is important to know of the many road restrictions in advance. To make driving easier Navigator displays restriction for large vehicles as icons directly on the map. In Settings - Map customisation you can enable/disable the truck restriction icons permanently or show them depending on the selected vehicle profile. This feature is available for TomTom Truck version only.

Online Search

PREMIUM

If you have an active data connection, you can use the Online search engine in Navigator in addition to the standard offline search. Its advantage is the search not only in the downloaded map materials, but also in other online data. For example, you can find a destination or point of interest that is not listed in OSM or TomTom maps. In Navigator 6+ (Android), you can switch to online search by tapping the 3 dots in the upper right corner of the main menu.

Remote commands

PREMIUM

The Remote Commands allows you to integrate Navigator with other software into larger telematics systems or to control it remotely using a set of external commands. The dispatcher can thus send the driver, for example, a new destination directly to the navigation. You can also get information remotely from the application, such as the remaining time and distance to the destination, current GPS coordinates, and more.

App colour schemes

PREMIUM

Switch to your favorite colour. With the premium Colour Schemes, you can set Navigator to the colour you like best. In addition to the standard blue, there are 15 other colour themes (including various shades of green, orange, red, purple, pink, brown or black) and a dark night theme. You can choose a color in Settings - App customization - App colour theme.

Android Auto connectivity

View the navigation and control Navigator app directly from the Android Auto device in your vehicle. Navigator 7 for Android brings full compatibility with Android Auto at no extra charges for users of all versions of Navigator 7 for Android 6 and higher. Navigator 7 will be available to all users on Google Play gradually during June 2021.

Waypoints optimisation

Navigator can optimise the order of waypoints and thus make the route shorter. The optimisation of waypoints is another very useful feature in Navigator. You can find it in Route info/Routing points/ ... option Optimise. Independently from the order in which you have entered the waypoints, Navigator optimises their sequence and thus makes the route shorter. Of course, this feature is handy not only for professional drivers but also for private users.

Setting up your vehicle

Setting up your vehicle

In Navigator you can use a predefined template for route calculation (Bicycle, Bus, Car, Motorcycle, Motorhome, Pedestrian, Truck) or create your own vehicle profile which exactly matches your own car. TomTom maps can help to navigate large vehicles like trucks, buses or camper-vans. You can create your own vehicle profile for navigation by going to Settings and selecting Vehicle Profiles. To get TomTom maps go to Map Manager from the main menu and select Buy Maps.
