Is It Your Type?
Though it's hard to find a phone these days that lacks GPS navigation, most carrier offerings can't keep up with the robust features and polished interface of a dedicated portable navigation device.

If you're looking for a phone that excels in navigation and all location-based features, but can still handle all the best that Android can offer, T-Mobile's new Garminfone is definitely worth a closer look.
