World News:  Garmin launches plug 'n play sat nav for smartphones

Garmin’s new Mobile XT is an all-in-one software solution that turns selected GPS-enabled smartphones into high-end navigators.

Garmin Mobile XT seamlessly pairs the phone's built-in GPS with Garmin's software so that customers have the benefits of turn-by-turn and voice-prompted navigation anywhere in Europe or North America.

Unlike other mobile phone applications, Garmin Mobile XT offers convenient preloaded maps and includes subscription-free access to dynamic content like premium real-time traffic alerts and weather reports.

The safety camera alerts feature is free for first three months; thereafter subscription charges apply for updates.

Garmin Mobile XT is preloaded on a microSD card (with miniSD and standard SD card converter) that includes Garmin navigation software for the UK & Ireland, Europe, or the US & Canada.

Garmin Mobile XT is compatible with a wide range of smartphones, and works with operating systems such as Windows Mobile, Palm and S60 v3.
