Palm Navigator with Garmin Software

Palm is launching a new navigator with Garmin software pre-loaded onto an SD card. Of course, the Garmin software is a popular software interface here in the Garmin software. No news on the future of the TomTom software solution on the Palm units.

Drivers using the new GPS Navigator with their Palm smartphones can rely on turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions to easily find their destinations as well as millions of points of interest, updated traffic, fuel prices, hotel prices and weather forecasts.(1) Expected late November, the Palm GPS Navigator featuring Garmin software will be $249 USD

OnCourse Navigator 6 GPS Review

We are all pretty familiar with the iGo interface around the GPS LOdge, as it is on the Mio line, Jensen, V7 models that have hit the market. Well the software package is also available for your Pocket PC PDA, and a recent review popped up on the software that I thought I would pass along. The OnCourse software package is sold with the new TeleAtlas maps that are also in the Mio C220, and today's TomTom models. My preliminary look at the maps on the Mio C220 indicates that TeleAtlas made a big jump in the accuracy with this release.

Overall, it's not surprising that PocketNow saw the iGo interface about how we see it here at the GPS Lodge; a pretty good interface and solid navigation package with some instances where the menus are not as intuitive as you might like. Either way, Pocket Now give the Editor's Choice to the software package for your PocketPC PDA.

Inrix Predictive Traffic for your Win PDA

INRIX announced the availability of INRIX Traffic for Windows Mobile devices. Wireless users can now gain instant access to real-time and predictive traffic conditions on their Windows Mobile devices in more than 60 U.S. metropolitan markets, with additional markets becoming available in the coming months. The application is available at handango.com with a free trial period. This is a big step as it will put predictive traffic capability in the hands of a lot of users who don't have a traffic enabled GPS (yet) at a reasonable cost.

Palm GPS Navigator 3


Palm has announced the GPS Navigator 3 available for newer Palm Smartphones, including 650, 680, 700p, 700w, 700wx and 750. The unit ships with "The latest TeleAtlas Maps", which we hope will be the very latest maps that were released to vendors in the last quarter of 2006; these represent the upgraded map sets. While Palm released the navigator 3 bundle, they also announced a sale on Navigator 2 software. See the PalmStore for more details.

HP RX 5915


We first heard about the HP RX5915 back in September of last year, and the unit is becoming pretty popular. As the Garmin Nuvi line steps towards information tablet status with travel guides, etc. and other GPS units like the Mio H610 add contact managers, and a lot of other travel friendly applications, the HP approach is to add the GPS right in on top of a very capable PDA. Not the first time we've seen it, but certainly a nice execution. SiRF star III GPS Chipset, integrated WiFi and Bluetooth, sitting on top of a Win Mobile 5.0 platform.

Digi-Guides of Paris – GPS Guided Tours


Ahh, so this is what the future is going to look like. I love the integration of the GPS into activities other than tromping through the woods. Here’s an offering for you to download a walking tour around Paris to your GPS enabled PDA for 1 euro. Pretty cheap, and you get to choose from around 40 different day and night tours. Don’t have a GPS enabled PDA, you can rent the whole package of the PDA, Bluetooth GPS receiver with a pre-loaded tour for 15 euros.

Review: Mio P550 PDA/GPS


Nice Review over at Clove on the Mio P550 GPS/PDA system. Overall, the Mio P350 has a windows system that also incorporates the GPS functionality for a smooth transition between applications. Mio is tearing up the GPS world lately with the launch of their Mio H610 GPS, a small pocketable and purse-able GPS that has a lot of people talking. The P550 come fairly well equipped with the SiRF Star III chipset, a 400 Mhz processor and 128MB of memory.

New Bluetooth GPS Receiver: Garmin Mobile 10


Garmin announced Garmin Mobile 10, a product that turns Bluetooth enabled devices such as laptops, smartphones, Pocket PCs, and PDAs into GPS navigators. Look familiar? This is the Garmin Mobile 10 that was approved by the FCC back in July and then leaked through their site. The Garmin Mobile 10 system includes either Garmin Mobile XT or nRoute navigation software, and the GPS 10x, a highly sensitive GPS sensor that determines location data using the Global Positioning System (GPS) and transmits that information to mobile devices enabled with Bluetooth wireless technology.

HTC P3300 PDA/Mobile Phone – Integrated with TomTom Software


TomTom has been on a tear recently, and they aren’t stopping yet. TomTom has announced that they are working with HTC, a relatively unknown but very experienced handheld maker, to launch the HTC P3300 a handheld PDS/Phone with TomTom Navigator 6 software built right in. This will be the first step in a collaboration agreement between the two companies. While fans might thing of this as a rival to HP and Palm products, the real news here is that unless GPS companies evolve away from stand alone devices, they are going to get left in the dust. I think that Mio, Garmin and TomTom realize that they have excellent navigation system software, and that the expertise is needed in the development of navigation systems not matter what the hardware is, witness this launch, TomTom’s Navigator software, The Mio 350 and 550 PDA's, the Garmin PDA series and even Garmin’s Mobile Phone software. I'm telling you I need a SiRF star chip in my Video iPod for the ultimate convergence.

GPS Review: Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition


Palm announced earlier this week that they released the Palm GPS Navigation System with TomTom Navigator 6 on board, and there is a great review out on the net already. The Palm GPS Navigator is designed to work with your Treo phone, with all the well known functionality of TomTom’s interface and dataset. The GPS receiver (a SiRF star III based system) is a small Bluetooth module that looks a bit more generic than the last version and is reported to have some fast acquisition times as one would expect from this chipset. The GPS module is powered by a 12Volt adapter or a battery back up that will offer some time untethered.

Mio H610 Handheld GPS


Update: More on the Mio H610

Mio is taking the GPS world by storm, and there’s a sneak peak at the Mio H610 that’s come out. The H610 looks like a competitor to the very popular Garmin Nuvi 350. The Mio H610 would have maps of 24 European countries pre-loaded, expandable with an SD card slot, a 400MHz processor, a 320 by 240pixel screen displaying 65,000 colors, and a host of extras like an MP3 player as well as some traveler aids like dictionaries and currency converters. Looks small, potentially too small to be useful in a car like the Nuvi? Don’t really know until we hold one in our hands. Looking forward to more news on the Mio H610 GPS, aren’t you?
