Garmin announces compatibility with Google Maps
Garmin yesterday announced that users can now send locations found on Google Maps directly to their Garmin personal navigation device, an announcement made on the heels of their identical partnership with MapQuest. The Send-to-Garmin feature is available at Google Maps, as of April 1.

“Given the amount of time we all spend at a computer or in our cars, teaming with Google Maps gives users the versatility of planning their travels at their keyboard in addition to their Garmin device,” said Dan Bartel, Garmin’s vice president of worldwide sales. “There’s no need to waste time printing, scribbling or e-mailing locations and directions when you can use Google Maps to search for and save everything you need with just a couple of clicks.”
