Garmin for smartphones : víago for iOS and Android Smartphones
Post on 17 June 2014 at 14:19:00 by gpspassion. EN - Smartphone GPS
Source : Gpspassion

Updated June 17th, 2014
Garmin have just launched the víago app for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. víago, apparently developed by the former Navigon teams, is modular in nature, with several "In App" purchases available.

While the $1.99 (currently $0.99) purchase price will get you fairly advanced "off-board" navigation (server access required) with traffic and "lane assist", additional modules sold for $9.99 will let you add on-board maps, panorama view, 3D buildings, etc...You can use the Garmin launches new iOS/Android nav app : víago in the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated June 24th, 2012 - After being a late starter in the GPS on Smartphones market for obvious reasons (full line of GPS systems and nuviFone project with Asus), Garmin played catchup at a steady pace with the StreetPilot software for iOS and the purchase of Navigon last year, a Smartphone GPS leader. Their latest offer is the Designer Car Kit for the iPhone 4 and 4S. Offering a car kit is certainly a good idea because this is a required piece of kit if you want to navigate with your...

Sports GPS - Garmin Forerunner 601 : v2.90 Update
Post on 24 January 2014 at 09:58:00 by gpspassion. EN - Sport
Source : Gpspassion

Updated January 24th, 2014
Garmin have just posted the v2.90 update for the Garmin Forerunner 610. Not a lot to write home about (battery gauge bug fix) but it's nice to see that they are still working (as they usually do) on a discontinued model. More details in the Forerunner 610 - v2.90 update of the "Sports GPS Systems"

Updated January 21st, 2011 - GPS watches have been around for a long time but have only been solid GPS performers since the 2006 with the launch of the Garmin Forerunner 205 and remained a Garmin virtual exclusive, with some inroads by Globalsat and Suunto. Not for much longer since Nike and TomTom launched the Nike+ SportWatch GPS at the CES show earlier this month. This GPS watch makes a very good first impression with its compact format and...

Source : Gpspassion

Updated November 22nd, 2013
Just on schedule, Garmin have now released the twentieth Map update installment under the nuMaps Lifetime program, the CityNavigator NT 2014.30. These new maps are likely based on the Navteq Q2/2013 release.

The CN NT2014.30 maps are also available under the nuMaps Guarantee program (within 60 days of buying your GPS and no longer limited to one update) and as a one time puchase (ex-nuMaps Onetime) : North America and Europe. You can use the City Navigator 2014.30 NA - Released 11/2013 topic in the nüvi forums to discuss.

Updated May 4th, 2012 - Slightly ahead of schedule (previous maps were available February 7th, 2012), Garmin have now released the fourteenth Map update installment under the nuMaps Lifetime program, the CityNavigator NT 2013.10. These new maps are...

Apple Maps in iOS 6 with full GPS and TomTom data - A Rough Start
Post on 22 September 2012 at 16:00:00 by gpspassion. EN - Smartphone GPS
Source : Gpspassion

Updated September 22nd, 2012
A busy week for Apple aficionados with the arrival of the much anticipated iPhone 5 but also with the immediate availability of the iOS 6 upgrade for existing iPhones and iPads. The highlight of iOS 6 being the new Apple Maps app that replaces the much liked and trusted "Google Maps" app.

While users were looking forward to some features like full 3D "turn by turn" navigation with visual and vocal guidance, what wasn't expected are the many problems spotted in the field : transit guidance gone, simplistic traffic information, odd search results, reversed compass...quite perplexing. You can use the [TOPIC] Apple Maps GPS on iOS 6 with TomTom data in the "GPS on the Apple iPhone and iPad -" forums to discuss.

Updated June 12th, 2012 - Apple used the WWDC 2012 conference that takes place in San Francisco from June 11th to June 16th to introduce iOS 6. We'll have to wait until the fall to experience it for ourselves but there are some interesting GPS news. Apple had been using Google Maps since the launch of the first iPhone in 2007 and little had changed since, great map browsing and static guidance. With iOS 6 we'll be getting...
