One of the most popular vehicle navigation systems in America is now better than ever. Thales Navigation, a leading global provider of GPS solutions including Magellan and Ashtech product lines, has announced significant new software advancements for its Magellan 750M(TM) and 750NAV(TM) Series Vehicle Navigation solutions that deliver a higher level of driving freedom. Completely portable, the Magellan 750M allows customers to easily move the compact unit from vehicle to vehicle to provide visual and voice-prompted, turn-by-turn directions virtually anywhere the driver goes in the U.S. and Canada. From the makers of the Hertz NeverLost® vehicle navigation system, the lightweight, self-contained 750M now offers enhanced user-controlled route exclude features, enhanced off-road navigation functions, more up-to-date mapping data and improved cross-country routing. These technological advancements are also available in the Magellan 750NAV. The product enhancements provide 750 series customers with more cities, towns, and roads in the already extensive database of detailed street maps and more than 500,000 businesses, hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, government facilities and highway-exit services. Enhancements to the route exclude feature give drivers the added control of bypassing traffic jams or constructions zones by excluding roads in real time while the driver is in route to the destination. The off-road navigation function now allows users to set waypoints, create routes and determine the aggressiveness of a terrain. The 750 series combines map-matching, inertial navigation technology and continuous data from Global Positioning System satellites to provide extremely accurate guidance information without service charges.
