Garmin offers free software for receiving texts on a sat nav
Garmin satellite navigation systems can now download a software update that will allow them to send and receive SMS text messages when paired with a compatible Bluetooth mobile phone. And some of them will even speak those text messages (though how it’s going to cope with text language I don’t know)
The new service is available on the nüvi 660, 360 and 360T and the StreetPilot c550, which all feature the text to speak functionality.
The free download is available from Garmin’s support site at www.garmin.com/support/, and a list of compatible mobile phones can be viewed at www.garmin.com/bluetooth/phones.jsp.
