I think you are stretching the term "applications" in this reply. Most of the newer Garmin units support "Tour/Travel Guides" and with a little effort, users can create their own "Guides". But, these are not applications. They are Garmin "extensions" to the Custom POI capability of these units. Garmin does not provide an API for third-party programming on any of it's PND's.
