TomTom iPhone app takes you to the pictures

TomTom has revamped its iPhone app, and added a brilliant new aspect whereby you can set the app to take you to the destination of a photo, essentially turning your iPhone's camera album into a living, breathing address book.

The new feature works by tapping into the geo-tag location stored within an iPhone's photo, and ties-in with what TomTom's GPS product manager told Pocket-lint at IFA; when he said that the sat-nav giant was "definitely looking at" the massive boom in location based services and that it would be "silly not to be looking at it".

It means that you'd be able to take a picture of all your favourite addresses, restaurants, shops, or even just random spots and never have to worry about a postcode ever again.

As well as the photo-location feature, the new update brings with it iPhone 4 optimisation, to get the best out of that retina display, multi-tasking, and the latest up-to-date maps.

You'll also still get access to all the usual TomTom stuff like HD Traffic (with a subscription), IQ routes, spoken street names, advanced lane guidance and local Google searching.

The new app will be hitting the App Store imminently and the Western Europe and UK apps are priced at £42.99.
