Garmin StreetPilot sees price drop and new features

Most smartphones these days come with a built-in GPS chipset that will help you get up and around even in unfamiliar territory, never mind the fact that the smartphone’s battery life will be drained in no time at all. Well, to see a full featured, standalone voice-activated GPS app on the Windows Phone platform is rather rare to date, but at least the Garmin StreetPilot is able to step in and up the ante, so to speak. Garmin has thrown in social networking integration with the app, ensuring it remains relevant for the user, and you can now check-in with Facebook and Foursquare when you arrive at your destination, all for a mere $29.99 which is more than reasonable enough.

Other features include voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions including street names, real-time traffic updates, 3D buildings and landmarks, lane assist with Garmin’s photoReal junction views, speed limits for most major roads, integration with Bing search on your Windows Phone, a Trip Planner lets you create, edit, and save multiple routes, the ability to offer a detour around unexpected roadblocks or emerging traffic conditions, in addition to navigating even with the screen locked.
