Carphone launches mobile sat nav plug-in


Garmin Mobile XT enables sat nav with no monthly fees, preloaded maps, turn-by-turn directions and real-time services. The memory card comes pre-loaded with maps for the UK and Europe, as well as millions of destinations and full GPS navigation capabilities (the GPS receiver is available separately and costs around £99.99), Mobile XT features voice-prompted turn-by-turn directions and you can upload information on school zones and safety cameras whilst also navigating to contacts in your address book.


Mobile XT includes access to a wide range of Garmin Online services such as traffic and weather, and you can also get real-time traffic information on road work and congestion to navigate to your destination using the quickest possible route. Garmin Online is accessed through your phone's wireless data service at no additional cost to your data usage.


Garmin Mobile XT allows you to interact with other users and let them know of your exact location over text message thanks to the PeerPoint service. Users can then get directions to their friends, and even send a multimedia text message with a snapshot of the map so that mates can see your exact location and surroundings.
