Garmin have hinted about their Garmin nuvifone and their integrated location services, and how now provided more information on some of the functions that will be provided.
Firstly, “if you open a contact’s name on a nüvifone, you’ll have three primary options: call, text and go. The call and text choices are traditional options found on most phones, but if you press “go” it launches the navigation screen and you’ll be navigating to the contact’s address.”
Another example is having the nuvifone’s location integrated with the calendar; “You can find an event in the area via the “upcoming events” option, then add it to the calendar with the click of a button. When it’s time to attend the event, your calendar will prompt you of the event and then you can navigate to the event by touching a button on the calendar page.”
These may only be little bits of information, but it certainly looks like Garmin have thought through what could and should be achieved, and are making a well integrated device. Other phone vendors should be taking note of this information, and hopefully will be offering similar integration where it’s not available today.
