Samsung are really going to push the Galaxy Tab it appears, with NAVIGON signed on to have their navigation software installed onto every single Galaxy Tab sold within Australia, which is the same agreement The Australian recently struck with Samsung.

  • The Safety & Relax Package ($12.95): provides Lane Assistant Pro, Speed & Red Light Camera Warnings, School Zones and Speed Warner.
  • The Traffic Live Package ($19.95): delivers real-time traffic information and routes drivers around congested roads, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The traffic information is provided by Suna Traffic.
  • The Sound & Fun Package ($9.95): adds text-to-speech, announcing street names in addition to directions, and International Voices with different dialects, to lighten up the journey.
