Lately Android Auto has started to bring new features and now TomTom AmiGO comes to the platform as an alternative to Google Maps. The platform continues on its path to open up to developers, especially those who create route and map applications.

Thus, after Sygic Mobile broke the monopoly of Google Maps and Waze, a new point-to-point GPS navigator is now available on Android Auto called TomTom AmiGO.

It’s been a long time but support for non-Google navigation apps is now a reality in Android Auto. With this move, Google plans to open the ecosystem to many more developers, especially those software brands related to driving that until now did not bet on Android Auto.

With Google Maps or Waze being so popular, paid applications such as TomTom lost a significant share of popularity. TomTom AmiGO is a solution that now receives a significant boost by becoming a great alternative for Android Auto users.

TomTom AmiGO was testing Android Auto compatibility in private beta. And that test is now over, the stable version of the app now has access to navigation directly on the car’s console.

Google Maps is not the only choice

With the app, it is possible to go to any point on the map, although with one limitation: this app requires a constant Internet connection as it is not possible to use offline maps. Beyond this, the app fulfills what you would expect in a GPS navigator.

It has features like route planning taking into account traffic, alternatives to these routes, speed camera alerts, voice guidance, favorites, and a pleasant interface, readable and suitable to avoid distractions at the wheel.

TomTom AmiGO is a free app with no ads. The version compatible with Android Auto is already available on Google Play. If you were not using it, just download it directly from the store.
