    My previous Palm phones were the Treo 650 & Centro. I had Garmin Mobile XT on the Centro, but I had to use a keychain bluetooth GPS device because the Centro didn't have a built-in GPS chip.

    Now that I have the Pre+, I would like Garmin Mobile XT for WebOS. I'd like to pay $75 to $100 once (like I did for the Centro version) to have turn-by-turn navigation and be able to access all the service available through Garmin Online.

    I know Mobile XT resided on a microSD card for the Centro, but why not just make it a downloadable app for the Pre+?

    I am not paying $10 a month to Verizon for VZ Navigator.

    Hey Garmin, when will Mobile XT be available for WebOS?

    We don't even have the option of a monthly sub in Europe (not that I would pay one anyway). There is no turn-by-turn navigation available, full stop (period, whatever).

    Even if we had the equivalent of Verizon or Sprint navigation they would not be much use as I understand they both download maps as required meaning you need an active data connection which is no use when you are roaming outside your home country (when you are most likely to want navigation) and need to turn off data to avoid the huge roaming charges.

    I used to use TomTom on my Treo680 (and the 650 before it) which did the job nicely, now we have a built in GPS we have less functionality which is ironic.

    Just for the record, Garmin Mobile XT for PalmOS will not work under Classic either, which is a shame as it would have been a halfway solution.
    Thought of the day :
    No sense being pessimistic, it probably wouldn't work anyway

    I sent an email to Garmin inquiring about a navigation application for the Palm Pre. Here's their response:

    Dear AlbanyHDTV,

    Thank you for contacting Garmin International.

    I will be happy to help you out with this. Unfortunately as of right now there has not been any announcements about Garmin developing an application that will be compatible with the Palm Pre.

    With Best Regards,

    So with stating that they didn't announce anything yet, they didn't exactly answer the question I guess, right? ;-)

    I think we will see something when the pdk apps are released.

    I would definitely pay for this as well!
    In love with my launch day Pre Plus! Here are my impressions thus far.

    Looks like Garmin is following the same pattern as other GPS software developers: They're following the money. Like Garmin, Co-pilot chased the Nokia, Windows Mobile, Blackberry and iPhone devices before going to Android. Garmin hasn't even made it that far down the list (already 6 months behind on a previously announced Android version and no iPhone version in sight).

    It's the same pattern being followed by Sling Media with the mobile Slingplayer software. Big software like that is written for the bigger communities with better established SDKs first.

    I am getting an Airstash. I will see if xt loads in classic. Airstash is a bluetooth sd card reader that works with palm pre. You sould be able to read the information from that card or download the maps to the phone.

    Interesting lateral thinking, hope it works. Please report back

    That's the standard corporate answer that you'd get even if you asked how many times the CEO has gone to the bathroom that day.

    Still need the Pre's internal GPS chip to work.

    I think they are working on something. Spotted this a while ago when investigating the AT&T Pre...



    Someone's accessing the internet from Garmin's corporate site... although it could be just someone working at Garmin with a Pre.
    Palm IIIc -> Sony CLIÉ T650C -> Sony TJ-37 -> Palm TX -> Palm Centro -> Palm Pre Bell -> Palm Pre Plus Bell/Verizon Hybrid -> HP Veer -> HP Pre 3 NA -> BlackBerry Classic -> BlackBerry Priv

    It's a Late Goodbye, such a Late Goodbye.

    I want a garmin app that uses the gps without assistance. I want to be able to use it without a data connection. Sprintnav is useless when your out of coverage.

    If you have a Pre you can have offline maps. You can generate maps from google and other sources like files from Ozi Explorer.
    Install Maptool for webOS and search in the forums.

    There is another Application available by the name of Navit which support different map sources including Garmin maps. You can find the app in preware. But configuring it for garmin maps needs some linux command line knowledge. Just google for Navit to get more info...
