Garmin just released the Garmin Nuvifone G60 with AT&T.  This device was designed to be a navigation system in the first place, but with added features like most phones have as well.

The User Interface is very simple and very easy to use. The three large on screen buttons are for the main functions like : Call, Search and Show maps.

The build in GPS and the 3G connectivity will give this device the live capabilities to find addresses and Point of Interests online and instantly use this information to navigate to this address.

Go to the Garmin website to see the full feature list .

The cradle is really designed to use the device in a horizontal/landscape position. It comes with a suction cup and

cradle that allows you to place this onto your windshield or onto a round disk that you can adhere anywhere on your dashboard.

Below is a 7 minute video with my impressions.

The full user guide is available here .

The Garmin Nuvifone can connect to the computer using the USB sync cable. Windows will recognize this as a Mass storage device. After the USB driver is installed you will be able to see the device in “My Computer”.  By selecting the device it redirects you to install a dashboard application from Garmin which allows you to manage your device on your computer.

    Hey Johan,

    Could you gain up the bit-ratio of the sound in the video-preview a little bit?
    I’ts always nice to watch the previews from your site but the sound comes with
    some side effects.
