MapQuest and Garmin partner to send directions to PNDs
Four Months after TomTom and Google Maps, MapQuest and Garmin today announced plans for the upcoming launch of a new feature that will allow consumers to send trip planning results from MapQuest.com directly to their Garmin personal navigation device.

"GPS-enabled navigation devices are becoming increasingly prevalent”, said Christian Dwyer, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MapQuest. “Offering users the option to plan online from the convenience of their computer and send information to these devices is a natural progression and an important, time-saving resource."

The Send-to-Garmin feature will be available in April. This new feature works in connecting selected Garmin’s PNDs to a computer via a USB cable. Both waypoints (destinations) and a complete itinerary (route) can be sent to Garmin devices (see picture below).
