Palm GPS Navigator
Palm has announced the production of a new GPS Navigator, one that marks of a pair of changes. Unlike the current model (pictured), which supports only a select range of Treos, the new one is the first to also support the low-cost Centro smartphone. The device further marks a switch to Garmin's Mobile XT software, which comes preloaded on a microSD card. XT includes NAVTEQ maps of Canada, the United States and Puerto Rico, with over six million points of interest, and automatic re-routing for missed turns. Free access is included to Garmin Online, which supplies data such as traffic, weather, and gas and hotel prices.
The Navigator can be used in-car or on-foot, although it is geared towards the former. The unit should be ready for Canada and the United States in late November, and will sell from Palm for $249.
