An update to the TomTom app on iOS devices added the ability for users to sync their device and the app to Apple’s iCloud data synchronization service, for those who use GPS navigation frequently while driving or walking.

After installing the update, users can connect to the iCloud service and back up settings on the app, as well as various personalised settings like recent destinations, favourite or saved places, points of interest, travel routes and whatever else a user chooses.

Together with this update, users are given a 30 day HD traffic subscription free of charge. Users who have purchased an HD traffic subscription already will be be able to use this feature for an extra month. The update and app is also now compatible with the iPad mini.
