TomTom IPhone GPS app with "winding roads"

According to the interwebs, TomTom's navigation app for Iphone/Ipad has a winding roads feature similar to the one found on the TomTom Rider V5. For some reason TomTom's own website doesn't seem to mention it.

Apparently it only comes with the winding roads feature on the app for IPhones/IPads. The android verson doesn't have it.

Has anyone here with an IPhone tried it?

I've been playing around with the Winding Roads feature and it's... Not Bad!

It'll certainly introduce new routes to you - it did to me when plotting a course from Westerville Ohio to Athens Ohio. I would have normally tracked east to Zanesville before taking 13 and 78, but it suggested an alternative down 22 and 56 which I've never been on.

You can try the app out for free if you aren't already a subscriber.

I can't say it's my end-all-be-all solution yet though - I'm wracking my brain with the options - all of which have drawbacks.

Just installed this on my iPhone. Looks great. Can't wait to try it on the road. Might save a lot of time making routes sitting at PC.
