Are you a fan of the Windows Phone 7 platform? If you have answered in the affirmative, here’s a piece of good news. The Garmin Streetpilot is now available for that particular platform, adding to the total number of turn-by-turn navigation solutions. Guess when competition gets tense and companies give their best, the consumer wins in the end. Just what exactly does the Garmin Streetpilot offer on the table? For starters, how about Garmin navigation in the same way that native Garmin GPS personal navigators work? That alone ought to help instill plenty of confidence, even for folks who never used a GPS navigation device in their entire life. 

The price isn’t exactly cheap at $39.99 a pop, but at least it will work on EDGE networks just in case 3G isn’t available, going about downloading relevant data information to your device while following the route you have keyed in. Perfect for those who are traveling to remote areas where no 3G connections are available, but then again, if you have an Android phone, Google Maps 5.7 does offer offline maps.

Other features include voice-enabled turn-by-turn directions, street names, real-time traffic updates, Local Search, speed limit and a comprehensive database of points-of-interest.
