“Garmin definitely got it right” with the Android-powered Garminfone


Garminfone_keypad The Android-powered Garminfone received 3.5 out of 5 stars from PC World magazine. Kudos was given throughout the review for different capabilities and features, but one of the many accolades is that it's a good bang for the buck. "The Garminfone has the full functionality of a Garmin navigation device built in–plus all the advantages of an Android-based smartphone. In other words, it's as good as any dedicated GPS device on the market, and it's a better value than, say, buying a comparably priced Android phone and then paying another $100 for navigation software (which will lack the integration that Garmin has put into this phone)." 

PC World was also impressed with the navigation features, "side-by-side with Google's free navigation service…the Garminfone was quicker and more accurate in showing the position of my vehicle. In comparison with other phone/navigation-software models, the Garminfone is better at picking up the GPS signal, something that Garmin's designers say they worked hard to achieve."
