While there's hundred of cell phones that have a built in GPS to the unit. Most of these are very basic GPS that don't really get the job done. Well Garmin made the exact opposite. They made a GPS unit that also doubles as a cell phone. While you might think that this will be a good GPS but will fail as a cell phone, think again. It will be Android powered meaning it will have more features than you'll know what to do with. For the full article on Autoguide click the link below.

Garmin does make nice products. It looks like this will serve well for people who rely heavily on both a GPS and phone. The GPS on my blackberry... the not super expensive one is kinda limiting. The android platform is looking very attractive to me latley as I am considering ditching my black berry for somthing more fun.

ive had more than a few cell phones with built in gps. but they always didnt work like how i wanted. plus they usually charge for extra options like voice navigation. its pretty cool to see garmin do this.

iphone users tend to ignore all other cell phones in the market anyway. this phone is targeted at people that want a very capable portable gps that can also double as a cell phone so that they can avoid getting 2 units and just combine both into 1.
