When you think about Garmin (GRMN), the first thing that comes to mind are GPS systems. Here’s something you probably don’t relate with Garmin: smartphones. Garmin has two different popular smartphones on the market right now – one with AT & T and one with T-Mobile. According to CNet, the T-Mobile Garminfone is a huge improvement over the AT & T Nuvifone G60, proving to be a capable smartphone just as much as it is a reliable navigator.
The Garmin GPS fone is built on the Android™ platform. It is a full-featured smartphone combined with proven Garmin GPS satellite navigation. Whether you’re making a call, sending a message or simply surfing the web, Garminfone puts everything you need right at your fingertips. You’ll get access to the Android Market, similar to the the Apple iPhone app store, giving you thousands of apps to choose from. Android Market is where you’ll find apps to truly customize your smart-phone.
Garmin GPS Navigation
With Garminfone, you can find addresses, get both on-screen and voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions that speak street names, know your arrival time, and automatically reroute if you have to detour. Garminfone also supports junction view with lane assist¹ in many metro areas — so you can know the right lane to be in at the right time. In addition, Garminfone comes preloaded with millions of points of interest so you can look up restaurants, fuel stations, hotels, ATMs and more, get phone numbers and addresses, and navigate right to your chosen location.
