Glympse partners with Garmin to provide mobile location sharing

Real-time mobile location sharing service Glympse has announced a new partnership with satellite navigation company Garmin that’ll see location-sharing capabilities added to the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard and Navigon mobile apps. Existing customers can update their iPhone or Android apps free via the Apple App Store and Google Play.

The update enables users to share their location with friends from within the app while they travel to their destination.

Bryan Trussel, co-founder and CEO of Glympse, said “Working with Garmin, we’ve been able to turn navigation into a social and connected experience. Maps, directions and sharing one’s location go hand-in-hand, and by partnering with Garmin we are able to provide their substantial user-base with the added value of sharing their whereabouts.”

Garmin’s StreetPilot Onboard and Navigon apps provide turn-by-turn navigation for smartphones with features including onboard maps, lane guidance, speed limit warnings, real-time traffic and public transport routes.
