GPS navigation apps for the iPhone are  a dime a dozen these days, but somehow one of the biggest names in GPS hasn’t launched an iPhone app… until now. Today Garmin has released a GPS app for iOS called StreetPilot.

The app runs $39.99 and provides maps and directions for the US and Canada. It also offers voice directions, traffic alerts, road closure information, lane assist, and speed limit notices.

The app will require an internet connection, since the maps are stored online. This makes sure your maps are always up to date, but as I’ve learned from relying on Google Maps navigation on Android, this can be a pain if you need to reroute your trip after driving into an area with poor wireless coverage.
