Johannes is talking about the Tomtom Android app not a stand alone unit

Exactly. This is the TTom Go app. That i am trying to get my head around. Not the core products which one of my mates swears by.

I suspect that it loads a track rather than a route

I'll give it a go when I go to work later and see what it does

I created a gpx route in Tyre and then imported it into TomTom MyDrive.
The phone synced it OK
I set off for work and stopped half way along the route to start it.
It behaved as I would expect and started navigating from where I was till the end

It seems as though apps on mobile phones are a popular alternative to 'proper' sat navs, but do apps use excessive amounts of data?

Most apps use local downloaded maps so no great data burn
