Thales announced today, the worldwide introduction of significant new, enhanced features and updated map data to its popular Magellan RoadMate 700, the first portable, vehicle navigation device to offer drivers built-in street-level nationwide navigation for Turn it on and go! convenience.
From the creators of Hertz NeverLost, the Magellan RoadMate 700 is the first portable vehicle navigation device to offer built-in nationwide street-level maps for Turn it on and go! convenience. Now, in addition to gaining a large, color touch-screen, turn-by-turn voice-prompts and text directions, the Magellan RoadMate 700 will ship with the option to access the newest, most up-to-date maps for both Europe and North America on a single device.
Another added convenience is the ability for customers to beam address book data from most Palm OS and Pocket PC devices. Customers who currently own a Magellan RoadMate can take advantage of the new features by purchasing an upgrade package at www.magellangps.com, and customers who purchased the product on or after October 1, 2004 are eligible for a free upgrade via the website.
Among the device’s other added conveniences is a feature that lets customers enter personal addresses faster and easier than ever by “beaming” address book data from their Palm OS and Pocket PC devices into the Magellan RoadMate 700.
