Magellan RoadMate 760
Today Magellan released new features for the Magellan RoadMate 760 GPS navigation system. The device features new software called “SayWhere” which announces street names while you are approaching turns. The RoadMate 760 is based on the RoadMate 700 and features a color touch screen display.
Also new onboard software for the Magellan RoadMate 760 is a service called SmartDetour (Smart Detour) which provides automatic rerouting in the event of traffic delays.
The RoadMate 760 includes a new Mult-Destination routing which allows you to enter up to 20 destinations. The RoadMate 760 wil then find the shortest path between each of the destinations.
The POI database in the Magellan 760 has been upgraded with nearly 7 million locations. Another new feature we can’t wait to try is an automatic night mode operation where the brightness of the display changes based on the time of day. Cool!
The map display now provides the street number range for your current location which might be useful if you need to report a specific location in the event of an emergency. 12 voices are included and the voice directions given by the RoadMate 760 increase when the vehicle is travelling over 45 mph.
NAVTEQ maps for The USA and Canada come preloaded on a 20 GB drive. European maps also come preinstalled on the same device, however you will need to purchase an unlock code for those maps.
The Magellan RoadMate 760 retails for $1099.
