AT&T and Garmin Announce a New Mobile Navigation Era with nüvifone, The Navigation Phone

AT&T* and Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (NASDAQ:
GRMN) today announced the Garmin nüvifone G60 will be available
beginning October 4 only for AT&T customers in the U.S. in AT&T stores
and online at

The nüvifone G60 provides one of the easiest-to-use location experiences
available because it is the only phone to fully integrate the world’s
best selling GPS navigator with voice, data and mobile web.

“Personal navigation devices are already all about mobility and taking
the Garmin experience everywhere as your mobile phone is truly
compelling for customers who travel often,” said Michael Woodward, vice
president, Mobile Phone Portfolio, AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets.
“We expect the nüvifone to be the guide for local restaurants, the
least-expensive gas and the nearest coffee shop for many customers.”

”The nüvifone weaves location into nearly every facet of its
functionality making it ideal for people who depend on location to
navigate everyday life,” said Cliff Pemble, Garmin’s president and COO.
“The nüvifone has Garmin’s easy-to-use interface, so navigating to a
meeting directly from its calendar or contacts pages, or geotagging an
email or photograph with a location stamp, is intuitive, useful and fun.”

Navigate with turn-by-turn guidance

The nüvifone G60 has the same core features as a high-end Garmin nüvi®
and comes preloaded with maps and millions of points of interest (POI)
for North America. Customers who purchase a nüvifone will have
everything that they need to use the device as an in-car navigation unit
including a dashboard and windshield mount. The device can easily be
mounted in the car or detached for portable navigational use.

Because the maps reside on the nüvifone customers always have access to
navigation and they can receive turn-by-turn voice-prompted directions
that speak street names to millions of destinations. If a turn is missed
along the route, the nüvifone will automatically recalculate a route and
get the user back on track. The nüvifone is able to provide reliable
location information in the most challenging conditions because it has a
real GPS receiver with Garmin’s HotFix™ technology and assisted GPS.

The nüvifone also has a “Where am I?” feature so users will know their
exact latitude and longitude coordinates, nearest address, intersection,
hospital, police station and gas station with one touch of the screen.
Another great feature of nüvifone is for users who cannot find their car
in an unfamiliar spot or crowded parking lot, nüvifone will
automatically mark the position in which it was last removed from the
windshield mount.

Surf the web

Nüvifone customers are just one click away from a full HTML browser that
can be accessed via the nation’s fastest 3G network, or AT&T’s more than
20,000 Wi-Fi hotspots. Garmin’s location link, which parses addresses on
the web with latitude and longitude information, allows customers to
easily navigate to addresses they discover on the web by simply touching
the address. The touch-screen virtual keyboard which includes predictive
text, is customizable to QWERTY or A to Z to allow customers to easily
type in web addresses or send and receive text messages.

Capture quality photos

The nüvifone G60 also includes a three megapixel camera with auto-focus.
The camera automatically geotags images with an exact latitude and
longitude reference of where the image was taken. Customers may then
save the image so they can navigate back to the location, or email the
geo-tagged image to others.

Stay connected

In addition to millions of preloaded POIs, customers can supplement the
data with additional free and subscription content. The nüvifone
includes free access to AT&T’s Yellow Pages, flight status and
converter. Premium Connected Services gives customers subscription
access to real-time traffic information, fuel prices, White Pages,
weather and more.

Price and Availability

The nüvifone G60 will be available in AT&T stores or at
on October 4 for $299 with a two year service agreement after $100
mail-in-rebate. Nüvifone Premium Connected Services which includes
traffic updates, white pages, weather, movie, local events and fuel
price content are available for $5.99/month after a 30-day trial.
