If you’re one of those who like to explore alternative mobile app options, then you may have heard of TomTom AmiGO on Android Auto. It is one of the best navigation apps available on the market today. And now, it gets better with the newest updates it got.
The app offers the same capabilities as more popular options such as Google Maps and Waze – turn-by-turn navigation, community-powered traffic notifications, road incident reporting, and speed camera warnings. However, what drew millions of users worldwide to AmiGO is that you can experience all these features ad-free!
This means a more focused and hassle-free drive which you can enhance further by displaying the app’s visually-enticing interface on your head unit screen via Android Auto.

Just make sure you update the address line of your contacts to make the most out of this new feature.
You may also connect AmiGO to your calendar app so you can easily reach your appointment destination. If you add an address to your meeting schedule, the information gets integrated into the app for easier access.
