Will be interested to see if it's android as well. Can anyone elaborate?
Not as good a deal on the new TomTomGo app. I notice that as a 'free upgrade' you only get 'three free years'....so assuming that, it means that in 2019 we'll have to pay £14.50/year for 'unlimited driving' or be limited to 50 miles/month!

The old app is still being updated so switch back to that if you don't want to upgrade,but I'm sure some deal will be offered again in 2019
Can we have some links please?
For old app and new as well. Thanks in advance.
Thanks OP.

900mb to download UK & Ireland map.
I guess we're cynics - I'm skeptical about the reasons for upgrading too.
Where do I find the free upgrade please? On the upgrade page in the app I only see the paid options

Just downloaded, brilliant, 3 years free unlimited, thank you .
Thanks, just downloaded. Even of they charge after three years, I'll just revert back to the original or use any of the free Apps there is out there. Nothing to lose as far as I can see.
Does anyone know if I can get 3 free years on android? If so, could you please tell me how to go about it. Can't seem to get it on the app or on google play store
Seems a bit unfinished to the original app, does not have the option to travel via, adding address from contacts, paid voices etc. Hopefully they will add these features soon!
Is it just me or does this app not pick up your current location on start up (if you've moved to a different location while the app was shut down)?
Just launched the app this morning and it thinks I'm at the location of where I installed the app last night.
No free upgrade in Android
Maps on iOS has full sat nav built in that is powered by TomTom, so not quite sure what the need for clogging up your phone with another app is and one that doesn't seem as fully integrated as the built in Maps app.
TomTop UK & Ireland app is now showing £34.99 to download.

The app is called Tomtom GO...
I'm downloading tomtom go app and currently downloading the Western Europe Map how do I get three years free because it's saying I'm going to be limited to 50 miles a month
Just asked them on Twitter and the current app will no longer be updated after this upgrade.

So after your three years you will have to pay £15/year to use it!

TomTom have just replied to me on twitter and say the current (now old?) app will no longer be updated after the last update - so they're effectively forcing you down the subscription route.....

I have used copilot for 8 years on my phone and have had regular free updates ever since. Get the occasional blip, but with any sat nav, common sense is required.

You need to have the old app installed.

Have deleted the app not worth clogging 1GB of space. I'll make do with Apple and Google Maps

Just realised that isn't the unlimited navigation option. That's the freemuim 50 miles/day offering.

You need to initially have your old app installed and log in using the same details on the new app
Only getting the options to purchase in app!
Can only get free 50 miles a month. It would have been nice to explain how to do this instead of wasting people's time!!!
Voting cold on this sorry.

I paid about £38 for the original app which I thought was a good price because it had lifetime map updates.

It says on the original app that existing users will continue to get app and map updates, but from reading on here it looks as though if you "upgrade for free" to the "Go" app, then you will have to start paying an annual fee after 3 years, whereas if you don't "upgrade" I assume it will remain free

Yes it does not do everything that my old app was able to. And it's not that user friendly either.

Would you care to point towards that tweet? I've just read through a mass of their tweets and replies and they all stated that they're continuing to support the old app. The closest one to any sort of doubt came with this "No for now you can still use the old app. If it would stop working we will give you a heads up ;)"

Interesting! Why offer a 3 year free sub to the old app if they weren't desupporting it and wanting people to move?!?

Cheers, I kinda figure they'll try and migrate people across to the new app at some point, but hopefully it won't be anytime soon

Shows £34.99 for me
serious Q but how is this better than the quality free apps out there live Here, Google maps etc
I have been using the Go app for about 6 months with the same free offer for Android. You do get used to it, but the lack of planning a route beforehand REALLY REALLY REALLY grinds my gears....

BUT

I've just done this offer on my iPhone, gone back to my Android and noticed I've got another 3 years ontop of the previous 3 years! Valid until 2021! Bargain
