iPhone 3G to lose out on any future features

TomTom has released a new version of its GPS app for iOS, bringing the software up to v1.9. The title is now a universal app with a new iPad interface. The most attention has been dedicated to a new driving layout, which lets iPad users see the driving view and lane guidance images at the same time. Menu options, similarly, can be brought up without cutting away from the map screen.

Both the iPhone and iPad interfaces have been simplified, for instance including a button that will jump to the driving view from any part of the app. TomTom has also upgraded the software with the latest available maps.

The company does note however that v1.9 will be the last version to fully support the iPhone 3G. While the next update will still run on the phone, any new features will be limited to more recent hardware. Different editions of the TomTom app cost anywhere between $50 and $120, depending on the coverage included; in any case, users must have a GPS-equipped iPhone or iPad.
