Garmin confirmed yesterday that the nuvifone G60 would indeed be available through AT&T in the United States on October 4.
One feature in particular that caught my attention, mainly because I don’t think it’s ever been mentioned before, is the parsing of web addresses with latitude and longitude information. This feature gives nuvifone owners who touch a physical world address on a web page the option of being navigated there.
The pricing rumors we heard the other day are accurate. $299.99 for the Garmin nuvifone G60 with a 2-year contract commitment and $30/month data plan minimum. Furthermore, you’ll have to send in a $100 mail-in rebate. Garmin Nuvifone Connected Services which provide real-time traffic updates, white pages listings, fuel prices and weather, will cost another $5.99/month after a free 30-day trial.
