HTC has announced the HTC Touch Cruise, which is a handset that comes with GPS navigation and geo-tagging feature for easy tagging of photos with the location taken.
The HTC Touch Cruise is a redesign of the earlier models which comes in a more compact design. The handset uses the HTC Footprints geo-tagging that allows users to easily tag their photos with locations.

It comes with a car cradle, which allows you to mount on your car’s dashboard, that turns it into an easy to use, one touch navigation system that offers turn by turn directions.
