Garmin StreetPilot available for Windows Phone

Garmin has officially released StreetPilot for Windows Phone consumers. The app, based on what people find on the Garmin Nuvi series, gives consumers the opportunity to use their phone for turn-by-turn navigation. The app includes voice directions with street names, the ability to download maps prior to setting off (helpful in case you'll find yourself in a place with no reception), and access to your address book. The app runs for $40 (no trial version available) and can be downloaded here for those interested.

The timing of the app is rather interesting as many of these features are rumored to be coming with the Mango update in the fall. If you've been dieing for a good navigation program, this is probably your best bet. If you can wait until the fall to see what Mango offers, that might be a better course of action.
