Unlike a regular GPS system, the Magellan Roadmate GPS Navigator is designed specifically for RVs. It comes with a number of different features to make navigating your next camping trip hassle free. The large 7″ touch screen can display the surroundings in 2D or 3D with the Bird’s Eye View feature. Favorite places are easily stored and the Quickspell feature can autocorrect to make sure an address is entered correctly. Screen color and contrast can auto-adjust itself when driving at night. The A/V input allows the Roadmate to be connected to other devices, such as DVD players or iPods. Bluetooth is also included so the Roadmate can double as a speakerphone, making safer, hand-free calls possible.
Along the way the Magellan Roadmate can direct you millions of interest points, including gas stations and restaurants. When you get off the highway, the Roadmate can let you know of any attractions that may be nearby. It can give you basic information at a glance of various sites, including campground rates, whether pets are welcome, or if there is Wi-Fi available. The route to a destination can be customized to suit your needs, while an entire vacation’s worth of stops can be planned and stored all at once. The Roadmate can also take your RV’s dimensions and weight into consideration when planning a route. Traffic alerts can warn you of delays, while Smart Detour can re-route you immediately in the event of a traffic jam. New maps can be downloaded twice a year to ensure that the directions and routes are always current.
