TomTom for iPhone 1.3 comes with Google local search, pinch to zoom and more

About four months after introducing TomTom for iPhone 1.2, TomTom has now announced the 1.3 version of its iPhone app.

TomTom for iPhone 1.3 obviously comes with some new features: Google Local Search (including listings to various points of interest, “from restaurants to flower shops”), real time traffic compatibility, pinch to zoom (to make us of iPhone’s multi-touch capabilities), automatic day/night mode, new map updates, and a Music Fading feature (“the music volume decreases during turn-by-turn instructions and then increases when instructions are complete”).

Unlike Google’s offering for Android 2.1 smartphones in the US and Nokia’s offering for most of its Symbian smartphones, TomTom for iPhone 1.3 is not free. It’s $59.99 with maps of the US included, or $69.99 with maps of the US and Canada.

To use the new real time traffic capabilities, you have to buy TomTom Traffic – it’s and in-app purchase that will cost you $19.99 per year.

TomTom for iPhone 1.3 is available via iTunes.
