Garmin for smartphones : víago for iOS and Android Smartphones

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...

... iPhone, both to see it properly and to keep it charged. The TomTom Car Kit released in late 2009 certainly did very well for them. Garmin's version was designed by the Platinumdesign studio and certainly looks smart. It's a kit so you get access to Garmin's StreetPilot software for full "on-board" (maps and routes handled locally) guidance. You can use the [TOPIC] Garmin iPhone Designer Car Kit in the iPhone forums to discuss.

Updated January 11th, 2011 - When Garmin announced they were leaving the Android smartphone device market at the end of October (see below) there was hope that it would clear the way for their navigation software to be made available on other smartphones running Apple's iOS and Android. This is what happened at CES last week with the launch of StreetPilot for iPhone for $39.99 for North America. StreetPilot for iPhone is an...

... "off-board" navigation application with the maps and route calculations handled on a remote server. Some data is cached locally to allow for navigation to continue if the connection to the network is lost. The guidance voice was hard to understand on the first version (v6.5.2), but Garmin are addressing that with v6.5.3 released today. You can use the [TOPIC] Garmin StreetPilot iPhone -Reviews- v6.5.3 topic of the "GPS on the Apple iPhone and iPad" forums to discuss.

Updated October 28th, 2010 - Garmin and Asus confirmed earlier this week that they would not renew the garminasus partnership they started in early 2009 to bring GPS enabled smartphones to the market. In spite of their strong points, mostly the powerful Garmin GPS software suite...

..., the smartphones born out of this partnership, the G60 (linux), garminfone/nuvifine A50, A10 (Android 1.6) and M10 and M20 (Windows Mobile 6.5), they failed to find their market and/or get a strong push from carriers. The good news is that this opens the door for Garmin to port their software for other platforms, like the iPhone or iPad. You can use the Garmin and ASUS Announce New Mobile Strategy of the "GPS and Mobile News" forums to discuss.

Updated May 11th, 2010 - While Garmin have finally landed an operator deal for the Garminfone (ex-nuvifone A50) with T-Mobile in the USA, they launched it's little brother, the nuvifone A10 last week in Paris. The A10 is more compact than the A50 thanks to its 3.2" screen (3.5" for the A50) but it retains a large 1500mAh battery. It uses the same elaborate Android...

... 1.6 version as the A50 with some clever tricks like multi-touch or the display of geocoded pictures on the built-in map. More details and pictures in the Garmin nuvifone: G60, M20, M10, A50, A10 topic. Also of interest are NickH's comments on the Windows Mobile based M10/M20 and particularly of the EDOF (Extended Depth of Field) feature of the M10.

Updated February 25th, 2010 - After the failure in the market of the original nuvifone (launched as the G60) and of the M20, the Garmin-Asus partnership are forging on with new models......, the A50 and the M10. The M10 is based on Windows Mobile 6.5 and the A50 is based on Android 1.6 but with some heavy customization by Garmin, such as "multi-touch".

Both the A50 and the M10 were shown at the MWC 2010 show in Barcelona last week and while the M10 is not out of the ordinary, the A50 made a big first impression. A sleek form factor, a stellar screen and the vast possibilities of the Android platform should help put it on More comments and pictures in the Garmin nuvifone : G60 - M20 - M10 - A50 topic of the forums.

Updated October 5th, 2009 - Nearly two years after it was first announced the Garmin nuvifone G60 is finally available for purchase in the US with AT&T and will likely be announced in Europe on Thursday. The G60 looked like a "killer device" in January 2008 but with the iPhone having gained a GPS module and GPS apps in the meantime and the breakthrough of the Appstore, it looks like an uphill battle now. While things don't look as good on paper, according to PC Magazine they don't look...... good on the road either with the G60 only getting a 2/5 mark in their review. You can use the nuvifone Phone & GPS - Garmin launch with ATT topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" section in the forums to discuss.

Updated February 4th, 2009 - Almost a year to the day after announcing the connected nuvifone for a late 2008 release and then postponing it, Garmin are relaunching it with a new partner. Unfortunately it's not a mobile carrier that would have been able to mass market this new device to their customers, but an industrial partner, Asus. While it makes sense for Garmin to enlist the help of a company experienced in designing, manufacturing and marketing GPS PDAPhones, it does sound like an admission that their initial strategy failed...... It could also be argued that Asus failed on the GPS PDAPhone market almost entirely captured by HTC and seem to have given up on the GPS AIO market. Let's wish them luck but this project seems challenged at this point. You can use the nuvifone Phone & GPS - Garmin partner with Asus topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" section in the forums to discuss.

Updated January 31st, 2008 - Garmin have just announced the nüvifone, a device crammed with the latest mobile technology: 3G+, GPS, Wifi, Bluetooth, Camera with geocoding, Google Local, etc...There had been rumours of a Garmin phone for a while, as well as a TomTom one, but this device is quite a surprise...... Unlike the iQue line of PDAs that failed to break new ground and that was discontinued last year, the nüvifone appears like a killer device, at least on paper. It clearly takes after the iPhone but time will tell if it can compete.

Most technical details are still unknown (GPS chip, OS, Screen type and resolution) but we should find out at the 3GSM show in a couple of weeks, so stay tuned for more on GpsPasSion. In the meantime you can use this topic of the "GPS and Mobile News" section in the forums to discuss.

Updated August 29, 2003 - The iQue 3600 appears to have been warmly received and here's a news round-up: 1. Seidio have released an iQue 3600 version of their acclaimed Multi-function Super Bundle 2. Bob has treated us with a "picture review" in the forums. 3. I've just bumped into an iQue 3600 forum hosted on, lots of great feedback already!Updated 10/28 - Couple of news:

Posted 01/09

Garmin have just announced the iQue 3600, "the first PDA to include integrated GPS technology".

This looks like a very interesting device and, if I may say so myself, the best thing to happen to the PalmOS platform since the PalmPro 5 years ago! Expected availability is the second quarter of 2003 and MSRP is $589. You can read Joe Mehaffey's (from first comments HERE
