Garmin Xperia EditionGarmin has announced a new navigation application for Xperia smartphones as expected. Garmin Xperia Edition will integrate with the SmartWatch 2 to provide walking directions without having to look at your phone. You will be able to see your current position on the SmartWatch 2 as well as the route, there will also be a zoom function available.

Garmin Xperia Edition features onboard maps stored locally on the smartphone, so that you don’t have to worry about patchy reception whilst travelling. Premium features include onboard maps, lane guidance, speed warnings and lifetime traffic.

Garmin Xperia Edition will launch in March 2014 with a free 30-day trial. Once the trial is over, the app will still provide free to the map viewer and pedestrian navigation. There will be a $2.95 monthly subscription to access the full feature set or you will be able to access a one-time in app option.

    Pedestrian Navigation has a lot more appication other than on streets, it can be used in Hypermarkets, Malls, Hospitals, Universities, Large Housing Complexes, Hotels, Theme Parks, etc….. I see a lot of future for Pedestrian Navigation Which can be as accurate as giving a direction to a hotel room, a lab/classroom in a university or a store in a Shopping Mall or even to a specific product display area in a hypermarket……etc.
