TomTom Finds Palm


Palm announced today the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition. The system is powered by the new TomTom NAVIGATOR 6 software that features voice navigation and turn-by-turn directions. Meanwhile, a new SiRFstarIII Bluetooth enabled GPS receiver handles all that meddlesome satellite communication. It is compatible with Treo 650, 700w and 700p devices.

I’ve always wondered why GPS hasn’t been embraced by more developers. I know it’s sneaking its way into more-and-more devices, but instead of crappy camera phones, GPS would have been a much more appropriate feature to intergrate. Hopefully it soon becomes more prolific.
