Magellan Maestro 4700

Magellan-Maestro-4700-review The Magellan Maestro 4700 has a 4.7 inch touchscreen, voice commands, Bluetooth for hands-free cell phone use, lane guidance, 3D landmarks and AAA TourBook. In other words, it’s loaded.

Additionally, the following improvements have been made over previous Maestro models:

  • A second screen has been added for the OneTouch menu, allowing you to store a dozen more favorite locations
  • A noise-cancelling microphone aims to improve Bluetooth sound quality
  • The Maestro 4700 adds “Predictive Traffic,” meaning the unit looks at historical traffic data when determining routes; this is similar to TomTom’s IQ Routes
  • “Find your car” remembers your location; handy for those mega-mall parking lots

On a more basic level, it comes with maps of the U.S. and Canada, six million POIs and text-to-speech, so you’ll hear "approaching right turn, Maple Street" rather than just "approaching right turn."
