Magellan beefs up features on RoadMate line


UPDATE: Read our hands-on Magellan RoadMate 1470 review. I’ve also posted pages for the Magellan RoadMate 1220 and 1440.

Though there’s been no official announcement, Magellan quietly rolled out three new RoadMate units at CTIA last week, and one – the 4.7” Magellan RoadMate 1470 (pictured above) – is already available at Amazon.

The new models add features to the entry-level RoadMate series that were previously found only on the Maestro line. For example, the RoadMate 1470 includes Magellan’s new “One Touch” interface, multi-destination routing, highway lane assist, and AAA TourBook features.

I’ll post details on all the new models as soon as the info becomes available.

  1. Can my whereabouts be tracked remotely if I’m using the Magellan Roadmate 1470?

  2. Rich Owings says:

    No, most GPS navigators are only receivers and they have no transmitter. Someone could perhaps access historical info about where you have traveled though, if they had the device itself.
