Garmin on Your Cell

Garminmobilenuvimainmenu_screen_sho Garmin_mobile_wheretogooglehighlighWe recently attended one of the largest cell phone industry trade shows in the U.S. – CTIA Wireless and while we were there, we showed people that you can bring all that Garmin goodness to your cell. After all, it seems like people often fall into one of two categories — those who want one device that does it all and those who want separate devices that focus on doing one thing. Whatever your pleasure, we’re here for you. All of you.

In case you missed the press releases that went out, here’s a quick rundown in no particular order. First, your BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows Mobile smartphone will now look a lot more like your nuvi thanks to our new user interface. Plus, we’ve added Google Local search that gives you access to millions of additional web-based POIs. We’re also helping nTelos wireless customers navigate their day with ease. This is the first time we’ve implemented a BREW application (a cell phone "language") of Garmin Mobile, so the nTelos news has extra special meaning for our team. Yesterday we also announced that Samsung customers can start using Garmin Mobile XT — our plug and play maps — on Samsung devices. This announcement is being rolled out in countries around the world, so you’ll want to visit the web for more details.
