Garmin StreetPilot app launched for iPhone

Garmin has announced the launch of the StreetPilot app for the iPhone.

StreetPilot is a turn-by-turn navigation app which encompasses features including free traffic alerts to warn of accidents and roadworks, speed limit indicators, and “lane assist with junction view” which directs drivers to the correct lane in good time (hopefully).

Garmin promises an intuitive interface with just two basic options – destination selection, and view map. Addresses and services can be easily looked up, so you’ll never be stuck for the location of the nearest Little Chef (so you can be sure to avoid it).

Dan Bartel, Garmin’s VP of Worldwide Sales, commented: “Providing consumers with mobile applications is yet another way they can experience the benefits of Garmin – be it our navigation expertise or bringing the capabilities of our niche market products to a smartphone.”

“GPS is an extremely helpful tool, but we recognize it’s not a one-size-fits-all solution. We decided to introduce a new line of smartphone applications so that we can give customers a quality Garmin experience in the format of their choosing.”

The other applications Bartel mentions come for both the iPhone and Android, and include the Garmin Tracker (which works in conjunction with the Garmin GTU 10 tracking device to keep tabs on cars, pets or even children) and myMechanic (which provides car performance metrics).
