Magellan RoadMate 3000T
Rounding out Magellan’s announcements today is the Magellan RoadMate 3000T auto GPS navigation system. The RoadMate 3000T includes 3D maps on a touch screen display. It can be integrated with TrafficKit to receive live traffic updates and route around traffic jams.
Maps of the USA and Canada are included as well as a POI database of over 6 million points. More popular features will be the digital music player which can play MP3 files and WMA files via SD cards as well as a photo viewer. The internal battery of the RoadMate 3000T is a li-ion rechargeable to enable multimedia playback when not in your car.
The Magellan RoadMate 3000T also comes with technology to automatically increase the volume with speed as well as switch the map background color at night so the driver can retain better night vision.
GPS accuracy should be great since the RoadMate 3000T comes with a SiRF Star III chipset which is WAAS enabled. The 3000T is shipping now and has a retail price of $599.
