Magellan RoadMate AAA RS2.0
Magellan has announced a new partnership with AAA to provide a customized version of their RoadMate for AAA members. The device, called the Magellan RoadMate AAA RS2.0 has a few features that will not be available on other RoadMates.
AAA TourBook guide listings are incorporated into the POI database on this new RoadMate and feature AAA rated hotels, attractions, and restaurants. Only some regions will carry the RoadMate AAA RS2.0 — the Mid Atlantic, California, Western and Central New York, and Auto Club South will initially be offering the device in their offices and on their websites.
“AAA is synonymous with automotive travel and safety, so we’re pleased to be working with them on unique solutions for the more than 15 million members that these four clubs serve,” said Hubert Canuet, general manager of the Magellan OEM business. “The Magellan RoadMate AAA RS2.0 not only offers the standard in auto navigation excellence to AAA members but also provides an exclusive value to members with the integration of the AAA TourBook guide listings.”
Based on earlier existing RoadMate models, the AAA model RoadMate is 5x4x1.5 inches, provides a 3.5 inch touch screen 3D display as well as a MP3 music player and a photo viewer. Approximately 20 “vias” per route are supported.
