CES: Garmin launches StreetPilot navigation app for iPhone

Garmin has announced its first turn-by-turn navigation app for iPhone, StreetPilot, as well as its full lineup of new smartphone applications for both iPhone and Android.

Garmin’s new mobile applications — including StreetPilot for iPhone, Garmin Tracker, myMechanic, and My-Cast Lite — will be on display in the Garmin booth (South Hall #35831) at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The StreetPilot app is designed specifically for iPhone, the StreetPilot app gives iPhone owners unlimited use of Garmin’s industry-leading navigation with traffic alerts.

The StreetPilot App includes many of the same high-end features available on Garmin’s standalone automotive GPS devices like free traffic alerts that enable drivers to steer clear of traffic accidents, road closures and construction; lane assist with junction view that directs drivers to the preferred lane and displays realistic images of upcoming complex junctions; and speed limit indicators that display speed limits for most major roads.

It is an off-board navigation system so that customers always have the advantage of the most up-to-date mapping information available.

The StreetPilot app also integrates with a driver’s iTunes music library so they can access and control their music while on the move; integrates with their address book so they can navigate directly from their contact list; and uses the multitasking ability of iOS 4 to allow them to take a phone call while the navigation continues to work in the background.

Price & Availability:

The StreetPilot App is available now for $39.99 from the iTunes App Store.
