One of the best navigation apps

I’ve tried Waze, Apple Maps, Google Maps, and various others on the store and this is by far one of the most polished. The subtle overlay of buildings in 3D is a nice touch.

There’s only one reason I’ll be sticking with my current map app over TomTom Go: there is no automatic turn by turn direction list in Car Play mode. You can click through settings / current route / instructions to see a list but it doesn’t auto update and is a little cumbersome. By default, CarPlay just shows a map on the car and phone screens. It’s just enough of an inconvenience to keep me from subscribing currently and using as my main nab app, but I’ll be watching future versions. Harry

Worst I’ve tried

I think I’ve tried every navigation system that is ever been available. I have to say that this one was absolutely the worst. I went ahead and signed up for the trial, because I wanted to see if maybe it was worth paying the money, if it was that good as an app! However, the first thing I found in firing it up, was that the maps look faded and hard to read. I installed it on an iPad but it doesn’t size to the iPad without just doubling it. that’s not that big of a deal since I normally would be using it on my phone, but I still found it interesting. But most profoundly, I live on a cliff and the navigation starts down at the bottom of the cliff where there’s a road, and navigates me to where I want to go from there, except that I’m not down there. I fired up a couple other navigation apps to make sure that it wasn’t a problem with the GPS correctly identifying where I was. Harry

Needs Work

I really wanted to give this app a top rating but I can’t. Unlike prior versions, the current version of this app when used with Apple CarPlay is way too unstable. It often freezes and requires a restart while driving which is annoying and sometimes very difficult to do safely. No other CarPlay navigation app I have ever used has frozen even once. Also, a strength of this app had been its ability to guide to an alternate route when traffic warrants. Several versions ago they got rid of this and replaced it with a green line on the screen showing a faster route but without the audio guidance. This requires the driver to study the screen, usually in heavy traffic, to figure out the alternative and follow it, a task that is often difficult and dangerous while driving, making this feature useless. There is a lot to like in this app but tomtom has a lot of work to do to get it to top tier. Allen, TomTom Team

Navigating decline: what happened to TomTom? | Business

At the end of 2007, TomTom was on top of the world. The Dutch satnav maker had taken record revenues of €634m (£445m) in the Christmas quarter, sold a record 4.2m devices, and was making a net profit of €107m, an all-time high. The fall, when it came, was going to be hard, and it took less than two years: by the first quarter of 2009, revenues had slumped to €213m and it recorded a net loss of €37m.

What happened? Corinne Vigreux, the chief executive who is also one of TomTom’s four co-founders, puts it down to two factors: “The economic crisis in 2008 – plus smartphones became popular, and Google began offering navigation for free on [Android-powered] phones.”

The arrival of a search engine company in the field of in-car navigation is not the sort of threat you would normally plan for. But Vigreux, 50, has seen enough change in the technology business to know that “your competitors come from different fields – they’re not the ones you expect them to be. Hilton Hotels would never have expected their margins would be eaten away by Airbnb. Every company starts with a blank sheet of paper, and some of them then arrive like a tsunami.”

For TomTom, survival would quickly become a matter of adapting to the new reality, in which Google could undermine the paid-for satnav business – which was then selling millions of units each quarter – with software that would quickly be in everyone’s hands. But where would the money come from?

TomTom had already decided that the future lay in providing map data and telematics for vehicle makers. In July 2007, it made a €2bn offer for Tele Atlas, the company’s map data supplier, which was one of only two independent mapping companies (and also supplied Google). In October 2007, Nokia bid €5.7bn for Navteq, the other independent. US-based Garmin tried to snatch Tele Atlas, but a brief bidding war saw TomTom prevail with a €2.9bn bid; the deal closed in June 2008.

But the stock market did not like TomTom’s purchase, which was funded by debt and a new share issue. Its shares plunged from their high of €64. 80. At the start of 2009, the company wrote off more than €1bn on the Tele Atlas purchase. Shares hit an all-time low of €2.84.

For Vigreux, however, reinvention and building from the ground up is what she is used to. Her first managerial role was running exports at Psion, the iconic and hugely influential British technology company, in the 1990s. She travelled widely, which was her original aim in getting into business. “North Africa, Israel, Europe,” she said, having joined Psion from business school in 1987.

Psion was a stalwart of British technology, producing a much loved handheld computer series that rivalled the Palm, from the US, in the 1990s. But the rise of mobile phones pushed it to a software-only path: its Symbian software became the basis of the first successful range of smartphones, from Nokia.

Vigreux is following a similar route. After four years at Psion – “it was one of the most interesting tech startups around; we learned a lot, there was a bunch of smart people” – she moved to Holland to join a software distributor for the Psion and other handhelds, and then helped set up TomTom in 1991. Initially, it made business-facing products for meter reading and barcodes for the popular handhelds – Palm Pilot, Compaq iPaq and Psion Series 5. Smartphones were not yet in use.

At first, it wrote mapping applications for the handhelds, squeezing data into tiny (by today’s standards) amounts of storage. “It was very difficult to put everything into one product; we had a city [map] product, but we were already very good at compressing data so we could fit it in.”

The company then saw an opportunity to make mapping devices for consumers. Before May 2000, civilian GPS systems were accurate to within only 100 metres; only the military could get its “full” accuracy of a few metres. But a Bill Clinton-enacted change made it open, and Vigreux and the team at TomTom saw an opportunity.

Rather than having to rely on people who already owned expensive PDAs, they realised they could sell them dedicated objects for less. The first, the TomTom GO, cost £499 and was released in March 2004. “And the first touchscreen,” Vigreux says proudly. “We created the [satnav] category.”

The market exploded; Vigreux and the team, now 40-strong, saw the business grow from revenues of €42m to €1.8bn in four years. “We probably drove the Ferrari close to the cliff a few times,” she says, laughing. “It’s not so much the technology that’s difficult to handle; it’s the part of the iceberg that you don’t see – the operations, the planning, the forecasts – and that’s with a four-to-six-month lead time for some of the products.” Coping with growth was a challenge: “It got faster and faster, without a stop button.”

The abrupt braking, when it came, hit the company hard. In mid-2011, it recorded another €500m write-off on the dwindling outlook for the standalone satnav market. Tele Atlas services generated much smaller revenues than selling physical devices; in retrospect, the purchases of Tele Atlas and Navteq were fuelled by legitimate fears that Google and smartphones would change the world of mapping, away from high-priced profitable devices to lower-priced services. And keeping maps updated is expensive – the world keeps changing. The analyst Horace Dediu estimates that each mapmaker’s annual upkeep costs are at least $1bn.

As a result, TomTom is seeking new sources of revenue beyond in-car satnavs. It recently collaborated with Nike on a sports watch with inbuilt GPS.

However, it is the potential for self-driving vehicles that Vigreux is most keen to exploit. She said: “They will have a massive impact on the way we live. At present, our cars aren’t used very much in the day; maybe when they can drive themselves it’ll be more efficient, and there will be fewer on the road.” The key, though, will be the mapping data, and information about road conditions. This is where TomTom hopes to eke out an advantage by offering 3D features that it can update in real time – quicker than Google.

Meanwhile, Nokia is selling Navteq, rebranded as HERE, with a price tag that could top £2.5bn, and the most likely buyer is a consortium of German luxury carmakers: Audi, BMW and the Mercedes-Benz owner, Daimler.

TomTom is a smaller business now: its first-quarter revenues were €205m with an operating profit of €21.4m, but net loss of €7m. Despite this, Vigreux says she is optimistic about the future. Yet she still frets about the state of consumer electronics companies in Europe compared to their rivals in the US. Vigreux said: “In Europe, we invented GSM [the system used worldwide for mobile phones]. Today everyone uses a phone. Yet there aren’t any big European players in the field. Consumer technology makers are disappearing: Nokia, Sagem, Philips, Alcatel.” Nokia sold its mobile phone business to Microsoft last year – it now makes mobile network equipment.

And she is proud that “we’re the only entrepreneurial consumer electronics company to come out of Europe with a global business”. So why the lack of others? Waze and DeepMind, two of the most innovative non-US companies (in travel and artificial intelligence) were both snapped up by Google. “Maybe we sell out too quickly – look at Skype as well,” Vigreux says. “Regulation might be part of it, but in the end the technology that consumers believe in and demand will win. Look at Uber – it is coming to a market that was over-regulated.

“But we shouldn’t look for excuses. Maybe there isn’t the right ecosystem of capital, entrepreneurs and universities together. But we have got the talent and the creativity.”

Does she support the idea of quotas for women in boardrooms? Vigreux replies: “I think some countries do need quotas, just to put it under the spotlight. But it’s better just done naturally. If we want more women in the board, then we need more executives, so you need more earlier in the organisation, and they need a career path through the organisation.”

In fact, she thinks, the lack of talented staff is “the biggest issue most organisations are facing. You have to fish in a bigger pond to fill those gaps. So of course you should look at women too”.

Vigreux is always watching out for new challengers, having seen Google come from nowhere to undermine what was a solid business. But for now, she is keeping her balance – and finding a new route through all the change.

London is considering providing an alternative navigation system on the OneWeb platform and is negotiating with the American NextNav; the latter is also working with the US authorities on a possible replacement for GPS

Britain and the United States are looking at alternatives to GPS satellite navigation due to possible threats from Russia, reports The Times.

UK Undersecretary of Defense Jeremy Quinn said the UK government “needs to be on the lookout” as he says Russia is trying to jam the GPS signal during the fighting in Ukraine. “Both sides are using a range of options. We need to learn from this and continue to work on our own innovations in this area,” he told the newspaper.

According to the Times, London is considering the possibility of creating a satellite navigation system, including on the platform of the British OneWeb and the American NextNav. The latter is currently negotiating with the British government to deploy a navigation system that uses only the signal from ground stations in London and Manchester.

NextNav chief executive Ganesh Pattabiraman said the company is also working with the US authorities to try to create a system that can replace GPS “due to the threat it is facing from Russia and other [countries]”. An abrupt shutdown of GPS would disable power systems, mobile phones, disrupt the banking system and make it difficult to use precision-guided weapons, he said.

The UK government’s Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy told the publication that authorities are looking at “a range of security enhancements” for the country, including non-satellite alternatives to GPS.

On March 19, the head of Roskosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said that the United States, as part of the sanctions, is considering the possibility of disconnecting Russia from GPS, without providing details to support his words. At the same time, he urged the Russians “not to strain,” since the NIS GLONASS will continue to work.

OneWeb previously collaborated with Roskosmos on launching satellites into low-Earth orbit, but on March 3, the board of directors of the British company decided to suspend preparations for all planned launches of its satellites from the Baikonur cosmodrome. This happened after a Russian state corporation demanded that the UK withdraw from OneWeb shareholders

The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Finland stated that they discussed with the Security Council of the Russian Federation the violation of the GPS during NATO exercises

HELSINKI, November 15. /TASS/. The Ministry of Internal Affairs of Finland discussed in Moscow with the Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev the violation of the signal of satellite navigation systems (GPS) during the NATO exercise Trident Juncture, which took place from October 25 to November 7. This was announced to TASS on Thursday by the head of the Finnish Ministry of Internal Affairs, Kai Myukkyanen.

] Patrushev, saying that this issue is now causing concern in Finland. Whoever is behind these events of last week is demonstrating unconstructive behavior for the spirit of cooperation that we need in the Arctic,” the minister said.

“We have agreed that if, in the course of the investigation conducted by our authorities, something arises that gives rise to more questions for the Russian side, then we will again contact the Russian Federation about this. Patrushev supported this idea and said, that in this case he will also provide answers,” he added. “Obviously, the specific threat and its consequences were not very serious this time, but this is a matter of principle, since it is also about sovereign territory, so we will carefully monitor and respond to such situations,” Mykkänen stressed.

“It is likely that this particular case will not have a strategic impact on cooperation, but it is important to maintain the practice of informing about the possible impact on each other’s territories, and <...> such negative situations will not become a common practice in the region,” he concluded .

On Tuesday, the Norwegian Ministry of Defense issued an allegation that the Russian Federation interfered with GPS during Trident Juncture. They indicated that “between October 16 and November 7, [GPS] signal jamming was observed” and that “Russian forces on the Kola Peninsula are behind this.” On Thursday, the Finnish Foreign Ministry also released allegations that the signal disruption originated from Russian territory.
