Garmin Streetpilot, the popular Windows Phone navigation app, has been updated to add a few new features to the mix. Most notably Foursquare, Facebook and Wikipedia integration.
While there isn't an official change log, here are some features we've noticed.
- Create and save routes with multiple stops with Trip Planner
- 3D building map layer
- Public transportation is now displayed on the map as a layer
- Wikipedia links map layer
- Facebook and 4Square integration allowing you to check in/out of locations
- Use of the compass (device dependent)
We've also noticed the start-up time and overall speed of Garmin Streetpilot has improved as well. Throw in a few cosmetic changes to the map view and the update covers a lot of territory.
Oh, speaking of cosmetic changes you have downloadable voices that includes a Yeti, Elfred the Elf and Dr. Nightmare voice. You also have a healthy choice of automobile icons to download ranging from Star Wars to Sponge Bob icons. While the update adds a lot to Garmin Streetpilot, I still wouldn't mind seeing downloadable apps come into play at some point.
There is a free trial version available for Garmin Streetpilot and the full version will run you $29.99. You can find Streetpilot here at the Windows Phone marketplace. If you find something we've missed with this update, feel free to share in the comments.
Thanks goes out to everyone who tipped us on this!
