After getting my new Flagstaff 832 KRSS, I am now in the market for a GPS unit to use on trips etc... After a lot of research, I was sold on one of the many Garmin units that are available, and I was just narrowing models based on my anticipated use.
Being the gadget geek that I am, I was also resisting a growing urge to upgrade my Samsung Blackjack cell phone for something newer and cooler like maybe an Iphone or more robust Blackberry.
Then as I was checking google for GPS units, I find what may be the coolest phone ever, at least for my needs and the needs of many other RV and Camper users out there.
Below is a link to the new Garmin Nuvifone. This phone is first and foremost, a high quality Garmin Nuvi GPS Unit with all the qualities you need for travels. This unit also is a cell phone, web browser, email, chat and IM. The unit also has Wifi access, and google local (which allows you to search for local gas stations for example, while on the road and will give turn by turn directions AND prices of the fuel at those stations). With this unit you are not limited to the points of interest that are loaded in the actual unit since you have access to the live web.
Finally, it also has media / mp3player, photo viewer etc. and when the unit is placed in car cradle if you are on the phone at the time it goes directly to speaker phone to keep your call going and automatically switches to you GPS screen at the same time.
One other neat feature is that whenever you remove phone from cradle or take a picture it marks that lat and long of the location so you can link picture to directions, or get directions back to where your car is parked in a parking lot!
I said I was a gadget geek...well we will have to see how this phone pans out.
