The Nuvifone G60 represents a first for Garmin. The company has been in the GPS industry for 20 years, but this is its first smartphone. The Linux-based device offers e-mail, calendar, and other features found on smartphones, but the functionality is really limited. The G60's navigation capabilities, however, are quite good.
The Nuvifone G60 measures 4.4 inches tall by 2.3 inches wide by 0.5 inch thick and weighs 4.8 ounces, so it's not the most pocket-friendly device. Then again, you wouldn't want it too small since it doubles as an in-car GPS.
The display has a built-in accelerometer but during our testing period, there were numerous times when the screen wouldn't change orientation after we rotated the phone. It was particularly frustrating when using the device as a handheld navigator.
