Garmin To iPhone Users: Our Mobile GPS Apps Offer Better Maps & Public Transportation Directions!

Garmin Updates iPhone Navigation Apps with Public Transportation Features and Apple Maps Integration

It doesn't happen every day that Apple drops the ball and hands a competitor a big juicy opportunity. But that's exactly what happened when Apple released decidedly lackluster maps in iOS 6 last week, and didn't include mass transit navigation information.

Garmin, in response, has updated their Garmin U.S.A. App as well as their NAVIGON USA App for iOS 6, complete with high quality up-to-date maps, as well as mass transit directions for navigating via bus, rail, or pedestrian mode.
