    Question Garmin App

    So I just saw a commercial for the new Garmin/Android cell phone and I was wondering if it is possible to port the Garmin GPS app to our phones.

    Can't find a video right now but here's the product page.

    I don't believe so. The commercial is for the Garmin NuviFone on AT&T. I believe it's based on Android, however, I don't believe there's any stand alone app that Garmin will release.

    No, there's no app. There was an AT&T "nuvifone" running a custom Linux OS. The new one is the T-Mobile "Garminfone" running Android 1.6.

    After Garmin released their first Palm integrated GPS, they then released the software. Same with WinMo. We can hope they follow the same trend with Android (although they seem to have discontinued the Winmo software recently.. Hopefully just between releases). I prefer the accuracy of Garmin's Navteq maps even though I appreciate Google providing free navigation. It is not nearly as accurate as my Garmin's which are worth every penny they cost me.

    Oh, I thought it might have been a standalone app that could be ported but after watching the commercial again, it looks like that the 'phone' is GPS first and foremost and then everything follows suit.

    Don't get me wrong, I think that the Google GPS is awesome, first GPS type product I've used, but I have heard plenty of good things about Garmin.

    But if it can't be done it's no big deal because honestly I don't use the GPS that much, just thought it'd be pretty cool to have.

    While having a Garmin app would be cool, if they charge for it, I couldn't bring myself to pay for it, when Google Maps works perfectly fine as GPS software (MUCH better then my TomTom) and it's free
    HTC Rezound... Stock for now, with the Tag Home launcher...
