Magellan RoadMate GPS

Love NAVTEQ? The folks at Magellan have just released their first iPhone GPS app named Magellan RoadMate for the USA which is on sale for $80 for a limited time. With the Magellan GPS app you get turn-by-turn directions spoken to you even with the street names, highway lane guidance, 3D landmarks, in-app music control, pedestrian mode and more. Best of all, its a one time fee, so once you buy the Magellan app, you don’t need to pay any monthly fees or buy a subscription.

The Magellan app is compatible with iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch with the Premium Car Kit, and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later with 2GB Free Space, as the app itself comes in at a whopping 1.3GB download from the App Store. The app supports English, Spanish and French languages.

The Magellan app has great graphics and is designed to be easy to use. You get a powerful POI directory, music playback and more. You can use it in portrait or landscape mode just by turning the iPhone, and swith between 2D and 3D maps.

Current missing features out of the box are live traffic updates, speed limit indicator, and support for multiple waypoints along a route.

Feature List Includes:
– OneTouch favorites menu
– Spoken street names
– Highway lane assist
– 3D landmarks
– Native address book integration
– In-app iPod control
– Find your car
– Pedestrian mode
– QuickSpell with SmartCity search

– Auto Zoom
– Dual-destination routing

– Accommodates most skins or cases

One Comment to “Magellan RoadMate GPS”

  1. I appreciate that this may not be the required route to contact you but there are no clues as to the answerto that problem.

    I live in the country in the North of Scotland and am plagued by poor delivery of goods ordered online being delayed by the lack of information on the satellite information units used by delivery agents.

    Since home addresses are identified by Postcode, and in rural conditions, postcode covers a large area and a number of addresses, the search is not over by a long way if a delivery driver just gets to a postcode.

    Would it not be possible to provide a system in which customers find the Grid position relating to their home and use that on postal or delivery orders to speed up the accurate location of an address?

    This would of course necessitate changing from the somewhat random method of postcode identification carried by the drivers, to the much more satisfactory grid recognition.
