    I'm looking for a list of iPhone recommendation apps, e.g.Yelp, that use the TomTom app to provide directions. I thought that the Where app did, but when I checked it, it uses the default map program. I couldn't find a way to set the default map app to TomTom. Thanks.

    I'd be very surprised if such an app existed.

    For a start, TT seem to have built a firewall around their app, making it difficult to do even normal things, such as transfer a point on the map app into TT.

    More importantly, which developer is going to develop an app that requires users to purchase a pretty expensive TT app in order to use it. And how do developers interface with it when TT (quite understandably) keep their software a trade secret?

    FWIW, Navigon's Mobile Navigator app, at least the Android version, is offered as a mapping/routing option directly from web searches, right along with Google Nav.
