    Garmin® Brings Turn-by-Turn Navigation to iPhone with New StreetPilot App


    6a00d83451bb7069e20147e13e65e4970b 120wi
    Garmin the global leader in satellite navigation, today announced its first turn-by-turn navigation app for iPhone, StreetPilot, as well as its full lineup of new smartphone applications for both iPhone and Android. Garmin's new mobile applications -- including StreetPilot for iPhone, Garmin Tracker, myMechanic, and My-Cast Lite -- will be on display in the Garmin booth (South Hall #35831) at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

    “Providing consumers with mobile applications is yet another way they can experience the benefits of Garmin – be it our navigation expertise or bringing the capabilities of our niche market products to a smartphone. GPS is an extremely helpful tool, but we recognize it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. We decided to introduce a new line of smartphone applications so that we can give customers a quality Garmin experience in the format of their choosing,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales.

    The StreetPilot® App: Designed specifically for iPhone, the StreetPilot App gives iPhone owners unlimited use of Garmin’s industry-leading navigation with traffic alerts. The intuitive interface greets users with two simple options: “Where to?” and “View Map.” Customers can easily look up addresses and services and get voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions that speak street names to their destination.
    The StreetPilot App includes many of the same high-end features available on Garmin’s standalone automotive GPS devices like free traffic alerts that enable drivers to steer clear of traffic accidents, road closures and construction; lane assist with junction view that directs drivers to the preferred lane and displays realistic images of upcoming complex junctions; and speed limit indicators that display speed limits for most major roads. It is an off-board navigation system so that customers always have the advantage of the most up-to-date mapping information available.

    The StreetPilot App also integrates with a driver's iTunes music library so they can access and control their music while on the move; integrates with their address book so they can navigate directly from their contact list; and uses the multitasking ability of iOS 4 to allow them to take a phone call while the navigation continues to work in the background.

    The StreetPilot App is available now for $39.99 from the App Store on iPhone or at iTunes Store.

    Garmin Tracker: Available soon for iPhone and Android, the free Garmin Tracker App works in conjunction with the Garmin GTU 10 tracking devices (also announced at CES 2011) allowing users to track the things that mean the most to them – a child, pet, boat, car and more – and see its location from the convenience of their smartphone.

    myMechanic: Auto aficionados can now know their car’s specific performance metrics including horsepower, torque, G-force, and more. Available for download from the Android Marketplace beginning in February 2011, myMechanic’s information is available when paired via Bluetooth with Garmin’s ecoRoute™ HD module.

    My-Cast® Lite: In addition to the lineup of My-Cast apps currently available for iPhone, a new, free My-Cast Lite application is available now for Android users which provides radar, current conditions, hourly and extended forecasts and more.

    Noted your advise.
    In this case, can iOS 4 download and **** the software then install our own favourite Mapsource?

    This seems to fetch the maps over the air which could be a problem if one has no reception or wishes to be frugal about data charges.

    Are there any capabilities for local map storage at all? Is there any kind of caching that will help with these issues?

    Thumbs up Garmin StreetPilot v6.5.2 iPod iPhone iPad

    Hello Catymag, a friend email me this address to download the Garmin StreetPilot App for iPhone, the think is that I don’t have an iPhone to do the test, so maybe you can and see if it works. Thanks.

    Hello, I’m sorry what a shame, try this other link this is from the latest version the 6.5.5. Maybe it had to do with the version. [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].
    Hope this one works fine.

    I like these kind of replies where no background information is given
    For example, it installed perfectly on my ipod Touch with IOS 4.2.1.
    But my device has a jailbreak, what about yours?
