New Magellan Meridian Platinum redefines standard for Handheld GPS Navigation

Thales Navigation, a leading global provider of GPS solutions including Magellan and Ashtech product lines, is demonstrating the first production models of its new top-of-the-line Magellan Meridian Platinum handheld GPS receiver at CES Booth 11700 South Hall 3. For customers who demand feature-packed navigation products, the Meridian Platinum makes getting lost a rarity whether driving in the city, traveling through the great outdoors, or finding your way on water. Shipping in February, the Meridian Platinum can guide users to within as little as 3 meters to their destination, all while showing their position on a moving map from its extensive built-in, 16 MB, searchable U.S. street mapping database. It also boasts a three-axis electronic compass to let users more rapidly and accurately identify their position and orientation, and is the first GPS to use the industry standard Secure Digital (SD) format for memory expansion, which enables customers to take more maps, larger maps, and other relevant data with them.
