Oh it's about time. I am so excited. I was hoping we would get this. We have both TeleNav and Garmin, I know Nextel has Telenav. I am downloading Garmin now to see how it works. Thanks for the information. This is great. Yes another good thing from Sprint Nextel.

I downloaded Garmin Mobile on my 7400 and all I can say is wow! Thanks for breaking the news Chris. It seems like Sprint Nextel's theme will be innovation and ARPU as opposed to having the most amount of subscribers. I think eventually they will be a force to be reckoned with.

Does anyone know exactly which phones contain the Garmin option? I've talked with Sprint's customer service, and they're totally clueless. I also called Garmin, and they acknowledged that only one of the Sanyo phones listed on their site is currently offered by Sprint. (I don't want that particular model, however, because it doesn't contain an MP3 player.) My guess is that the Sanyo MM-9000 may have the Garmin option. Can anyone confirm this? Thanks!
