Editorial Review

Add full-featured navigation to your laptop or ultra-mobile PC with Garmin's Mobile PC software. Packed with preloaded maps, millions of destinations, and full GPS navigation capabilities, Garmin Mobile PC turns your laptop into a powerful street navigator.


The software's intuitive interface delivers easy-to-follow turn-by-turn directions .
The software features an intuitive interface that greets you with two simple options: Where to? and View Maps. With Garmin Mobile PC, you can easily look up addresses and services and get turn-by-turn directions, with spoken exits and street names (English only) to guide you to your destination. The software also automatically corrects your route if you stray off course. You can even upload custom points of interest, such as safety cameras, or conveniently navigate to people's homes or businesses on your Outlook Contacts list.

No one likes to worry while traveling, which is why Garmin Mobile PC includes advanced navigational features to take the guesswork out. With route planning, you can save routes, specific via points, and preview simulated turns on your computer. In addition, Garmin Mobile PC automatically sorts multiple destinations to provide an efficient route for errands, deliveries, or sales calls. And you can see where you've already been on the map thanks to the trip computer, which automatically records trip data, and the trip log, which provides an electronic crumb trail. The software even makes it easy to avoid certain roads and areas.

Garmin Mobile PC also makes a great companion for business travel, with options for checking the weather, gas prices, flight status, and hotel information. The software makes it easy to get the weather forecast for your current location or anywhere else in the world. The software's hotels.com compatibility lets you view hotel rates, ratings, and amenities information with the click of a button, or check the status of your flight along with departure and arrival information. These free, real-time services from Garmin Online put essential travel information at your fingertips.

Garmin Mobile PC is available with or without a GPS sensor depending on your laptop configuration.
