Navigon with a Glympse icon showing in the lower right; note the countdown clock showing on the icon that tells you how much longer your location sharing lasts before shutting off.
Garmin has teamed up with Glypmse, the temporary location sharing App that allows you to transmit your location on the way to a destination. It's a great way to send your location to someone you're traveling to see, whether it's a night out, or a weekend trip. Don't worry, the location sharing is temporary, and you set that up before you send the notification. Glypmse is one of my favorite location based Apps, and it's good to see them team up with Garmin.
This new feature is available on the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard App (the one with the maps resident on your mobile device), and Navigon's mobile Apps.
Right now, Garmin is also offering a 25% off sale through the iTunes store and Android Marketplace. Prices for these Apps vary from about $25 - $45 depending on map coverage needed (East/West US to All North America)

Amazon has a big push on their Kindles, but nestled in among all of those book readers is the Garmin Nuvi 50LM as the #5 Best Selling (at this writing) electronics device at Amazon. That's pretty good, considering all of the competition.
What makes the Nuvi 50LM a Best Seller?
- It's a quality brand - Garmin is trusted
- It's $99 - a nice price point for a 5" screened GPS
- It comes with Lifetime Maps - update it when you connect it to your computer a few times a year. Roads change; update your GPS
- It's got some convenient features, like Lane Assist with Junction View - tells you what lane to be in and when to exit, graphically.
If you're looking for a good GPS, might want to check out the Garmin 50LM.
