TomTom has updated its lineup of iOS navigation apps providing expanded Facebook integration and the latest maps. With the new TomTom update, users can not only share their trip information via Facebook, but can also now pull location information and plan routes directly from Facebook Places and events. Users can access a list of events they have been invited to or search through the thousands of Facebook Places to quickly navigate to the selected destination. The update also provides the ability to share destination information via e-mail, Facebook and Twitter adds fixed speed cameras for U.S. users and includes a redesigned app icon. TomTom is available from the App Store in a wide variety of regional versions, all as universal apps for both the iPhone and iPad; prices range from $50 to $120 depending on the region.

This is not a good thing. Why would I want to share my travel information with facebook? Why should I have to do so in order to route to a person in my contact list?

It’s an unfortunate change that means that I’ll be sticking with the previous version of the app.
