The Garmin Mobile PC is a navigation package that turns laptops and ultra mobile PCs into powerful navigators. Garmin Mobile PC features the same easy-to-use "Where to?" and "View map" interface found on Garmin nuvi and StreetPilot portable navigation devices. With a few clicks, customers can quickly search and route to addresses or over six million points of interest like restaurants, hotels, attractions, gas stations, and more. In addition, users can navigate to Outlook contacts stored on their PC or laptop.
Garmin Mobile PC is available in two configurations - a software only package and a bundle with software and Garmin's new GPS 20x sensor. The software only version is compatible with broadband modems, as well as internal or third-party GPS receivers that provide the industry standard NMEA GPS data via serial or Bluetooth connections. The bundled version includes the new GPS 20x, a high sensitivity GPS sensor with a USB connection. The GPS 20x has non-skid pads for dash mounting and is less than two inches in length.
Garmin Mobile PC offers much more than traditional trip planning. Users can use their laptop to receive turn-by-turn, voice-prompted directions to their destination, similar to Garmin's traditional portable navigation devices. If a turn is missed along the way, Garmin Mobile PC will automatically recalculate the route and get them back on track. Garmin Mobile PC also offers advanced route options which allow users to select specific roads for their trip, avoid geographic areas, and auto sort multiple destinations. Drivers who want to keep track of where they have been can turn on the trip log feature and see an electronic bread crumb trail that shows exactly where they traveled. In addition, a smart trip odometer automatically records trip data.
Garmin Mobile PC also provides free access to Garmin Online services. This real-time data service simplifies trip planning by providing live weather, flight status, hotel rates (U.S. only), fuel prices (U.S. only) and safety camera data (Europe only, with subscription). Garmin Mobile PC includes highly detailed City Navigator NT road maps for the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico. The preloaded map data features over six million points of interest, including hotels, restaurants, gas stations, ATMs and attractions. The map data is provided by NAVTEQ, a world leader in premium-quality mapping.
