We reported on the long awaited arrival of Tomtom to the Android world back in October. Much to the dismay of many, the app’s arrival was a rather large anti-climax, due to only being compatible with a small selection of devices. Display resolution was the limiting factor, only supporting devices running at either 800 x 480 or 854 x 480 .

Today Tomtom have introduced a new update to the Google Play Store which adds support for devices with a display resolution from 800 x 480 up to 1280 x 800, which now covers all the current flagship devices, including the Samsung Galaxy S III and the HTC One X.

Another change in this latest update is that the app now downloads maps to SD card by default if one is present. It seems Tomtom have also improved the reliability of map downloading, which is always welcome, given the file size of some of their maps.

I was a big fan of Tomtom on Windows Mobile but haven’t had the chance to try it on Android yet. Let us know in the comments below if you use it or have tried it, and how you find it compared with other GPS navigation apps currently available. Is it really worth $51.99 for the Australian maps?
