October 4, 2007

The new software is preloaded on a microSD card that includes Garmin navigation software for the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico, or Europe. Once the card is inserted into a compatible smartphone with embedded GPS, the Garmin Mobile XT application will launch automatically. Additioanlly, Garmin Mobile XT includes PeerPoints, enabling users to send their position to any other phone as well as view and navigate to the location of other Garmin Mobile XT users.
