The Magellan RoadMate iPhone app (iTunes link) was introduced this weekend. It includes text-to-speech, lane assist and in-app music controls, and runs $79.99. Magellan also says they have a car kit coming (pic below) that has an integrated GPS receiver and will accommodate the iPhone or iPod touch.
Meanwhile, us Droid users are left suffering with a paucity of navigation apps (and few topo apps too). We get Google Maps Navigation beta (emphasis on beta) for free, but few other choices. Will Magellan, TomTom and Navigon step up to the plate, or ignore a huge market due to Google’s giveway nav app? Time will tell, I suppose. Regardless, I’ll be testing and reporting on some Droid apps soon, but not until we get past Black Friday. More on that soon.
