hi guys - ive got a samsung s8 and im trying to install tomtom go on it i have the latest patched version Tomtom_Go_v1.16.1_Build_2077_Patched_By_DeltaFoX.apk, anyway, ihave it working on my htc m8 at the moment and i know how to set it as, now when i install it on my samsung s8, the same way i installed it on my htc m8 it doesnt work it stays on the screen, see pic..can this be installed on several android devices ? or is it just one device at a time ?. i was going to delete it off my htc m8 as im assuming google/play servers can detect that im logged in both devices, hence it wont work..any ideas ? ta

Hi are both phones running same android version..?
It won’t make any difference being on two devices as it’s patched and should by pass the servers..
I can only think it’s not compatible with S8 OS.

ok guys just an update found this elsewhere not my doing and it works on my S8..follow instructions below, attached files included..ihowever i cant get the jane voice to work i get a message "the voice is not fully compatible with current units (miles /yards)?

1 - install original (from g-play)
2 - launch app, go though settings, wait till list of maps appears. Don't switch off app at this point!
3 - launch file manager, navigate to /storage/emulated/0/android/obb/com.tomtom.gplay.navapp and copy it to different folder
4 - now exit GO, and uninstall it from app-manager
5 - install patched version from here. Don't launch it!
6 - back to file manager - find your saved com.tomtom.gplay.navapp and put it back to /storage/emulated/0/android/obb/
7 - now launch app, go to list of maps - and download which you want.

As your Samsung is running latest android OS it takes developers of apps etc time to update stuff and make compatible mate..sometimes they are super slow and can be a year..
I used to use ivona but every time device OS updated the app took a year to do so also..
So just keep checking.
One Sat nav app I find always Upto date and no issues is navigon by garmin..great sat nav as it happens..
Runs on Android 7 as it’s on my LG.
I can pm you link to my dropbox for patched version if you would like..it’s just a case of install update-select uk maps etc off you go.

@AJT thanks bud..works great, just got to get use to it..got tomtom go mobile and this installed on s8....lol , have tomtom replaced the original tomtom for android to tomtom go mobile ? really like the original tomtom layout as i was so used to that and you could speed up a demo route that you intend to take..
