Magellan, a GPS brand, announced new features being added to its RoadMate® product lineup of car Navigation units that will enhance driver safety and enable easier viewing. The RoadMate 9055-LM has large screen along with free lifetime map updates. The new Magellan RoadMate 9055-LM GPS is a feature-rich navigation device designed for easy viewing that further expands Magellan’s successful 7-inch car Navigation product line. It offers the user the same viewing area as most in-dash car navigation units for a crisp, clear view of the screen. Bluetooth connectivity enables hands-free operation of mobile phones, helping drivers to communicate safely while driving. Magellan’s Free Lifetime Traffic Feature feeds continual updates of traffic conditions in traffic-congested North American cities directly to the GPS unit. The driver is provided with an accurate estimate of travel times factoring in distance and traffic, as well as suggestions for less-congested alternative routes.The RoadMate 9055-LM includes Highway Lane Assist which guides the driver into the proper lane for upcoming lane changes and exits, as well as Magellan’s proprietary OneTouch user interface providing users instant access to favorite addresses, searches and destinations. The GPS unit also features text-to-speech technology, which provides spoken street names while navigating; and a convenient Video-In jack, which can be used to connect an iPod®, back-up camera or other video source to watch live video on the bright 7-inch display.
