One of the more unique features allows you to choose between landscape and portrait viewing mode. Do you want to see more of what's ahead on a long road-trip or do you want to see more of what's around you while driving through the city. You choose!
Some of the new features make navigation easier. With the all new Landmark Guidance your routing instructions use landmarks instead of street names, making it a more intuitive way to navigate. You'll hear instructions like "In 200 feet, turn left at the Gas Station". Then the upgraded Junction View generates realistic images of freeway signs guiding you to the correct lane to make driving easier, safer and less stressful.
Traffic Camera Alerts are included at no extra charge for one year. These audible and visual warnings alert you to fixed red light and speed cameras. This is verified crowd source data that you refresh on your unit by the free Content Manager from Magellan. You can even become one of the many reporters on the street by submitting your own discoveries or rating the reliability of the alerts you are shown. Premium content is available for an extra cost which includes blackspots (high accident areas), school zones, and dangerous intersections.
Best Parking is another great feature makes parking in the city a much easier affair. Best Parking provides parking garage locations with both their hours of operation and their entrance. Choose the garage that is close to your destination and open. Once you have selected a garage you are guided directly to the entrance. No more searching for how to get in!
Magellan's Bluetooth SafeTexting has taken advantage of a capability found in many feature phones (sometimes referred to as "flip-phones") which allows texting control over a Bluetooth connection. This allows a Magellan feature known as SafeTexting which gives the driver the ability to respond to an incoming call or text with a pre-written text message informing the caller that the driver will call back when it is safe. The return texts, which are sent in a couple of button presses, may include location and ETA information automatically inserted by the GPS device! Ironically, smartphones generally do not yet allow this feature, though they are slowly adding it one by one. Feature phones account for 60% of the cell phone market. Compatibility in the other 40% will continue to grow as laws, manufacturers and cell phone carriers catch up. Click HERE to view our compatibility cell phone support list for your phone model.
The integrated AAA Tourbook gives you detailed information on hotels, restaurants, and attractions so that you have the information you need to make your destination decisions. And what happens if you break down out on the road? On the special "Where am I?" screen you'll not only have your present location given in terms that a tow truck driver can understand, you'll also have the AAA phone number listed and a place for you to enter in your AAA membership number. No more digging through your wallet or glove compartment!
The RoadMate navigation experience is both intuitive and robust. The OneTouch Favorites Menu allows you quick access to your favorite places or even your favorite searches.
