MagellanMagellan RoadMate 800 navigation and photo viewer : Thales Navigation, creators of Hertz NeverLost and global provider of Magellan Consumer GPS products, announced today the new color, touchscreen Magellan RoadMate 800, a portable vehicle navigation system with integrated battery power, a music player and digital photo viewer. The Magellan RoadMate 800 is the ultimate multimedia travel partner delivering a three-dimensional "bird's-eye" map view and preloaded maps in its 20 GB hard drive for out-of-the-box, turn-by-turn, text- and voice-prompted directions using the latest NAVTEQ data for all 50 United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and the US Virgin Islands. For an additional fee, drivers can also access maps for 27 European countries.

The Magellan RoadMate 800 delivers a large, easy-to-see, 3.5-inch, high-resolution daylight visible TFT color touch screen with a 3-D overhead map view or 2D view. The SmartVolume feature automatically increases the integrated speaker's volume when speed exceeds 45 MPH, and the map color changes automatically for better visibility at night. In addition, QuickSpell provides fast and easy address entry.

Multimedia functions
"The Magellan RoadMate 800 builds on the award-winning, market-leading Magellan RoadMate 700 to deliver a new level of convenience, flexibility and value," said Christian Bubenheim, vice president and general manager of Thales' consumer business. "Marrying exceptional GPS capabilities with multimedia functions and an integrated battery is a natural next step in providing the optimal user experience with solutions for an entirely new set of entertainment and travel needs - both in and away from the vehicle."

Store and Play Music, Share and Save Digital Photos
When the navigation feature is not in use, drivers can listen to music and create play lists or view photos and slide shows from Secure Digital (SD) cards, MMC cards or the hard drive. The system's USB 2.0 connectivity provides fast transfers of digital images, MP3 and WMA files to more than 4.5 GB of available internal memory - great for freeing space on digital cameras when the memory becomes full while traveling. Headphones are included for convenience.

Ultimate multimedia travel partner
Avoid Traffic Delays - When stopped on highways, SmartDetour automatically offers the option to choose an alternative route around traffic. Gain Optimal Routes for Multiple-Destination Trips - Save up to 20 trips with 20 destinations each. Route optimization will find the shortest route between them. Easily Find Destinations and More than Six Million Points of Interest - Drivers can enter a zip code or city to narrow a destination search. Users can select a destination by intersection, street address, previous destination, by touching a point on the map screen or by choosing a point of interest (POI) from the searchable database of more than six million businesses, like banks, gas stations and restaurants, listed by cuisine type. Users can see POI icons on the map screen and can route to one by touching the icon. In addition, a home button provides instant routing to the frequent destination of choice.

Review Trip Data
Users can track mileage, travel time and other trip statistics using the trip computer. Added Safety Features - Drivers can view a destination on the map before routing, the route recalculates after missed turns, and the Locate key lets you tell roadside assistance your exact location. The Magellan RoadMate 800 can be used in any vehicle without professional installation. It ships with a large suction cup windshield mount and cradle, a USB cable, AC adaptor, headphones, and a vehicle power adapter.
