With Windows Phone 7 now very close to release, the timing of this Garmin Asus collaboration does seem a bit tardy. I’m holding my breath to see the A10 Android alternative, but if you’re more interested in having a dedicated satnav phone...

Personal navigation started off as an add-on for a PDA, but it was only when the standalone versions began to offer a more dependable experience that the idea took off with mainstream consumers. So it's perhaps surprising to see that...

The M10 excels as a satellite navigation device and the impressive display is a joy to behold. Despite some grievances with the touch-sensitive screen and choice of operating system, this is still a tidy GPS-oriented handheld that ticks enough boxes...

A blazing-fast phone with 512MB RAM and a 600MHz processor, the Nuvifone M10 performed well in all our tests, from call clarity to GPS accuracy, and its NAVTEQ Maps were very detailed. Location based services were useful, and the interface is easily...

Excellent GPS system on a dated Operating System. GPS controllers have pretty much become a standard on Smartphones, however, the GPS applications bundled with most phones are far from great, especially in this part of the world. Thus I was looking...

There's no doubting the differences between the Garmin-Asus M10 and the earlier M20, the most visible would be its larger 3.5-inch display. Yet, we found the thick screen posing a few issues, one of which is the difficulties in getting the screen to...
