Ten O'Clock Tech: Location, Communication In One
Posted: 17-Mar-2001 [Source:]

[A GSM phone and GPS device all in one--Garmin's NavTalk II. Initial offerings will be in Europe with CDMA licensing bringing a US release of the product next year.]

by Arik Hesseldahl, New York -- "Most mobile-phone calls fall into two categories. There's the "I'm running late, but I'll be there as soon as I can" call, and the "I'm lost, can you help me find you?" call.

"The second type of call might be helped through a combination mobile phone and global positioning system (GPS) device called the NavTalk II, from Garmin (nasdaq: GRMN - news - people).

"The device combines a global system for mobile communications (GSM) phone with a GPS reader that can help you find your way to your destination. And while it will only be available in Europe initially, a similar device may be coming to the U.S. soon. Garmin has licensed code division multiple access technology from Qualcomm (nasdaq: QCOM - news - people), with an eye toward bringing a NavTalk phone to the U.S. market as early as next year.
