Tomtom and Garmin Jumping on the Mobile Wagon

GPS Handheld
Several phones such as the Nokia N95 have built in GPS receivers and built in mapping software. According to speculation this is making Garmin and Tomtom look in to the GPS enabled phone market. This really isnt a big surprise because if I went with a GPS enabled phone and it had decent mapping software I would ditch my TomTom navigator right away. Tomtom do have a good edge as they create software for mobile phones and do have Tomtom Go which can have a SIM inserted for hands free use. However, none of these are true phone options and should a provider have decent software then why would you go spend extra?
