Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition for Treo phones

Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition for TreoPalm Treo smartphone users and GPS enthusiasts rejoice! Palm today announced the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition, featuring the new TomTom NAVIGATOR 6 software, which is one of the most popular GPS navigation software packages. With the new GPS Navigator installed on your Treo smartphone, you can get voice-guided, turn-by-turn directions to find your destination, including millions of points of interest, including gas stations, restaurants, parks, airports and more. TomTom NAVIGATOR 6 is available today exclusively for Palm's GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition. Sweet! TomTom 6 is a long awaited upgrade from the popular TomTom 5 Navigator software. Although, I'm not sure how or why Treo users will "exclusively" get TomTom 6 when there are many other PDA and smartphone models with users clamoring for TomTom 6. Perhaps this news today just means that Treo users are "first" and therefore currently "exclusive". Well, TomTom corporate must really love Treo users to give them some lovin' first!

Palm's new Bluetooth enabled SiRFstarIII GPS receiver seamlessly pairs with the Palm Treo 650, Treo 700w and Treo 700p smartphones. Palm went the extra mile by preloading a 1GB memory card with maps.  Just pop the memory card into your Treo smartphone and pair the Bluetooth GPS receiver and voila' you can instantly access highway and street-level maps covering the United States and Canada. No desktop syncing or downloading of maps is required.

Palm's GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition will run your $299, and it includes a Bluetooth enabled SiRFstarIII GPS receiver, TomTom NAVIGATOR 6 software featuring the latest Tele Atlas maps, a 1GB memory card with preloaded maps of the continental United States and Canada, a vehicle device cradle with windshield mount and a charging system. You can buy this Treo bundle at the Palm online store, however, I just checked their site and it doesn't look like they updated the store yet.
