TomTom Taxi iPhone App: Never Miss Hailing a Taxi Again

by Range

No matter where you are, hailing a taxi isn’t always easy, and when you’re not willing or able to flash them to get them to slow down, it can be frustrating, especially in a foreign country. There are a few different apps that allow you to hail taxis, but this new system by TomTom looks pretty interesting.

The free TomTom Taxi app was based on terminals that TomTom had installed in Amsterdam, allowing people to hail taxis to specific terminals. The app will call a taxi to your location, and will automatically let you know how long it will take for it to arrive. The app even lets you learn about specific drivers, and lets you order your favorite driver – if you actually have one.

There are already several Taxi-ordering apps available, including HAILO and Taxi Magic, but this is the first to incorporate TomTom’s award winning GPS and map tech.

TomTom Taxi is available now for the iPhone, and is coming soon for Android devices. For now, there’s no indication whether TomTom will extend this service beyond the Netherlands, but I can see this being useful almost anywhere.
