It says that you are limited on the apps that you can use because of the android os. What apps can you not use with this phone? Do you guys still have access to use Google Sky Maps, Kindle app, Document programs etc?

Great looking phone but I'm waiting for Garmin to release an app for Android because I love my Nexus One :0)

Standalone GPS and Topographical Mapping Programs

I really want to know how this phone performs as a GPS for the backcountry trails and mountains. Anyone who buys this phone for this purpose should leave comments about their experiences please.

Does this thing have Gps?

Any idea? 🤤
You cannot be serious...Its Garmin...The GPS maker...and if you read the description and features it says it has GPs. That should already have been a given for you CELLPHONEXPERT

The Navigation companies can see whats coming...

but this is kind of OD'ing

I don't want to seem like I am constantly posting about Apple (wich I kind of am but I digress) but it seems like the more profitable way of making money for these companies would be to place their competing systems in the markets for people to fight over!

It might be a more profitable idea to put the Garmin Nav in the Android AND Apple application stores and advertise the hell out of it.

Though, I think it is going to be hard to wean these companies off of a hardware focused market. I just don't think any Garminfone or Nuvifone is going to compete with the likes of the Incredible or the EVO or even the (gasp!) iPhone.
Their own phones.
App Store/Market apps.
Stand Alone GPS units.

No reason all three avenue's can't be used from them.

They obviously have the facility to make electronics. They obviously have the facility to make the software. Why not make bot...

Fred Garvin phone

Anyone remember Fred Garvin, Male Prostitute, on SNL back in the 70s? That's the first thing I thought of when I heard this name, "Garminphone."

Either that or Garment-phone, like it's made out of cloth.

Tablet phone? Nice buzzword

Over used word is over used. A 3.5inch screen is not a tablet :/

Garmin GPS and Andriod = WIN

This has me really excited. All the Garmin Maps and the ability to use Andriod Marketplace. This will be awesome with T-Mobile prepaid.
Android requires web and prepaid doesn't include web. This will be awesome for month to month contracts, if that's what you were referring to.
