We’ve all had them: relationships where we know we should walk away, but just can’t bring ourselves to let go. Garmin-Asus may no longer be pushing their co-branded smartphone vision, but they’re not ready for a complete divorce. Instead, ASUS has exclusively licensed Garmin’s PND software for its Android devices.
The deal will see ASUS the only Android phones to use the apps, and will mean that the Garmin brand will be silk-screened onto handsets from the company. Meanwhile Garmin will be free to release its apps on other platforms, with free PND downloads in the iOS App Store and BlackBerry App World tipped.
