Garmin, who seem to be going like gangbusters lately (including the addition of Navigon to their lineup last year) have released a preview of what they are showing at CES this week. In their press release they are announcing some new and update products including:
- Garmin Smartphone Link is the first Android app that provides live services to a PND utilizing the smartphone’s data connection.
- The new nüvi® 3500 series: Garmin’s newest flagship personal navigation devices and the company’s first GPS navigators that combine the ultra-thin form factor with a large, 5-inch glass display.
- Garmin® Approach™ G6 GPS takes golf to a whole new level with worldwide preloaded courses, no subscriptions and a rechargeable battery.
- Garmin Automotive OEM: Garmin will provide a sneak peek at its automotive OEM navigation and infotainment solutions at a dedicated booth at CES. The week will be highlighted by an award presentation in which J.D. Power and Associates executives will recognize Garmin’s in-car navigation in the Dodge Charger as “Highest Customer Satisfaction With Factory Installed Navigation Systems”.
They have also made it possible to see a video about their new Smartphone Link app. Take a look here. Personally, I’d like to see an iOS version of the app, but hey it’s still pretty cool stuff! Take a look!
