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)

"Typical looking"


harsh phraseology..

Does a certain phonescoop employee not like this phone?

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.

GPS Assisted or Dedicated

One thing about this review it does not specify is whether this is Assisted GPS (Has to have carrier signal) or Dedicated GPS (turn on airplane mode and go into the Wilds).

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.

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.
