After the much-anticipated Apple Maps app failure, users flocked to Garmin's StreetPilot Onboard and Navigon apps. With this momentum, Garmin took advantage of the opportunity to keep their apps as the best on the market with interactive and social updates.
Its most recent revision includes the addition of public transportation information and a parking finder. In addition, the GPS giant has added the integration of Foursquare and Glympse. The Foursquare capabilities will allow users to "check-in" to their locations via the Garmin app, and push to the social network game and other platforms. Glympse offers a unique feature of allowing the user to send a notification to select friends on your whereabouts and arrival time.
Along with the release of the new features, Garmin is urging more users to jump on board with its advanced app by temporarily discounting their prices through the holiday season. Right now you can get the app on both Android and iOS for 25 percent off. These prices will only be available until January 7, 2013.
