Garmin Streetpilot goes Mango

Garmin Streetpilot (here's our review) was updated today and now is Mango-ized. While some of the changes are obvious, others are not.

The pre-Mango version is version 7.2 with the Mango version being 7.3. There is a decent amount of design changes put into place but the only noticeable feature change is the addition of a Contacts Tile on the "Where to?" page that opens up your Windows Phone contact list.

Streetpilot does have a little more zip to it and the fast-resume feature of Mango. The settings are identical but also experienced a slight make-over. Should we discover more changes, we'll update the post. And should you run across any, feel free to share in the comments section.

There is a free trial version of Streetpilot available with the full version running $34.99. You can find Garmin's Streetpilot here (opens Zune) at the Marketplace.

still can't do a route in the trial though?? the trial is next to useless without the ability to run at least a short route...

Looks like they added Go Home as a live tile, too. You have to set your home address first, then a pin shows up on the Go Home button. I also noticed StreetPilot shows up on Bing local searches. Clicking on it launches the app and shows you the location on a map so you can click go.

With WP7.5 will this, or any app, be able to provide audible TbT directions while I'm using another app?

Dunno, but, I hope you've got good insurance!
