Garmin Mobile is an easy-to-use software application that makes your compatible cell phone a GPS navigator. Detailed maps and turn-by-turn directions make it easy to locate addresses anywhere in the United States and Puerto Rico. Or you can search nearly six million points of interest (POIs) — places like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and tourist attractions — then dial the POIs phone number automatically for reservations, hours of operation, or other information.
Now, with Garmin Mobile 4.0, you can easily navigate your way to fuel savings with current pricing from nearby gas stations, avoid traffic tie-ups with real-time traffic data, check the weather for current conditions or five-day forecasts, and find great deals on hotels near any location with Hotels.com.
Simply choose your destination, and Garmin Mobile will automatically calculate the fastest route to take you there — providing voice-prompted turn directions along the way. Garmin Mobile’s text-to-speech functionality enables the unit to audibly announce the name of upcoming streets — so you can keep your eyes on the road. And if you inadvertently stray off course, Garmin Mobile will automatically calculate the quickest way to get back on track.
Garmin Mobile is the first phone navigation application that visually depicts and constantly updates the user’s position on a detailed moving map. An easy-to-read text and arrow format on a 3D perspective map helps identify upcoming turns.
