TomTom Middle East for the iPhone/iPod touch

TomTom has released TomTom Middle East for the iPhone and iPod touch. However they did not announce the availability of this app in a press release or list the Middle East on the TomTom iPhone app website.

TomTom’s Middle East support can be found here, no info for Middle East customers has been found.

The application only covers 6 Middle Eastern countries: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and United Arab Emirates. No Arabic support and small streets are nameless. The size is 91MB and sold for $79.99. However it is currently the top grossing app in the Saudi Arabia iTunes App Store. iTunes Store link.
