Back in July we had picture of Mobile 10X from FCC’s website while it was waiting for government approval. Today, Garmin officially announced the arrival of Mobile 10X, a bluetooth GPS receiver that can turn any bluetooth enabled laptop, and most smartphones, pocket PC’s into a navigation device, giving users the same high-quality map and navigation features found on other Garmin automotive GPS devices.
The sleek and compact GPS 10x sensor comes with a removable clip that makes it easy to carry or secure in a car. It has a removable lithium-ion battery for up to 20-hours of use, and a 12-volt USB adaptor for recharging and extended use. For added convenience, the GPS 10x battery is interchangeable with the battery on many popular Nokia phones.
Priced at $200 this is what’s included in the package:
- GPS 10x
- City Navigator® NT street maps on DVD
- Garmin Mobile XT and nRoute navigation software on DVD
- Lithium-ion battery
- Belt clip
- 12-volt adapter cable
- Quick start guide
In case you are wondering the device measures 1.65″ x 3.04″ x .7″ (4.2 x 7.7 x 1.8 cm) and weighs 2.1 ounces (60 g). Garmin 10X mobile should be available in November.
