Garmin-Asus Garminfone review

 

The holy matrimony between smartphone and personal navigation device just keeps getting stronger, scorning dedicated GPS units like forgotten flings and leaving navigation-free handsets wandering lost and alone. Garmin-Asus has been flirting with the...

Fantastic navigation experience ; Simple, intuitive UI ; Clean, sophisticated design

Hardware is rather bulky ; UI customization isolates Android users ; Iffy battery life when navigating

Asus Garmin M10

 

This Windows Mobile 6.5 based "Pro-navigation" phone is dead on arrival

Sturdy build, decent day snaps from camera, built-in GPS navigation software

Resistive screen doesn't accurately register to touch, almost outdated Windows Mobile 6.5 OS, no car kit in the package, no ambient light sensor, no value for money
