Satellite navigation may be standard issue on most smartphones these days, but it’s the route-finding software that’s key to helping you find your way successfully. With the new Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10, that’s something that won’t ever be a problem, since it combines the latest available version of Windows Mobile with software from leading satellite navigation experts, Garmin.

The Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10 runs Windows Mobile 6.5.3, which features a redesigned user interface with improved controls that are much more suited to fingertip — rather than stylus — operation. New applications also provide one-touch access to contacts, appointments and smartphone system settings.

Designed from the ground up to work as well as a satellite navigation device as it does a sophisticated smartphone, the Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10 has typical time to first fix time of just 35 seconds — so here’s no waiting around for the smartphone to find a GPS satellite before you can start plotting a route. And with first-rate route-finding software from the undisputed experts, you be sure of guided journeys based on data that’s both accurate and bang up to date.

The tight integration of A-GPS services on the Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10 also means that you plan journeys based on locations listed in text messages, emails and calendar entries. Support for such essential sat-nav functions as real-time traffic information and en-route junction views make travelling as pain-free as possible, too — it’s just a pity that the Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10 can’t take charge of the steering wheel…

Location awareness is about more than just getting from one place to another, of course, and the Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10 be used for everything from finding information about your local area to uploading geo-tagged photos to the web.

So, if you’re a mobile professional in need of a smartphone that that knows more about where you’re going than you might know yourself, look no further than the Garmin ASUS nüvifone M10.

The Garmin-Asus nüvifone M10 is expected to be available through carriers and retail distribution channels in Asia and Europe beginning in the first half of 2010. Additional information about the nüvifone product line is available at
