Garmin StreetPilot Windows Phone app gets updated with new features and social network integration
Full featured and standalone voice activated GPS apps are still a rarity with Windows Phone as a whole, but of course, there’s the great solution in Garmin StreetPilot that’s constantly getting its fair share of new updates.

With this latest one, it brings forth quite a few exciting new features that will undoubtedly increase its usability versus others out there. In addition to the wealth of new features found with it, the team over at Garmin is kind enough to even include social networking integration with the app. In fact, it now offers the check-in services found with Facebook and Foursquare – meaning, you’re now given the ability to check-in when you reach your destination.

Wow this is pretty great but I usually just use the Maps app or go old school and print my directions. But I may consider this if I start traveling more.
