Are you wondering what the core differences between TomTom AmiGo and TomTom GO are?
They seem very similar, but why do the two apps exist?
From my research, there is a limited variation between the two apps. The main difference is the sync with MyDrive, CarPlay compatibility, and monthly cost, which is available with TomTom GO.
Which Should you Pick: TomTom AmiGo vs TomTom GO
Although the name sounds similar, there are some stark differences between the apps.
The main differences are that one is paid, offers offline maps, and is compatible with CarPlay.
Read on to find out about TomTom AmiGo vs TomTom Go and which you should pick.
TomTom Amigo is a free app available from the app store and Google Pay store.
I believe it was meant to compete with the other free options out there, such as Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze.
Some top features include:
- Speed camera alerts
- Real-time Traffic Alerts
- Road Colsoere navuation
- Ad free
- Heavy privacy protection
But from my experience, the app is buggy and lacks features compared to other free options, and verses TomTom Go is a weaker option.
The fact that the app doesn’t work with CarPlay or allows offline navigation makes it less useful in today’s navigation world.
