Magellan RoadMate 760 Portable Vehicle Navigation

Based on the market-leading, award-winning Magellan® RoadMate™ 700, the Magellan RoadMate 760 today delivers new navigation capabilities including the industry’s first text-to-speech voice guidance, SmartDetour™ for re-routing around traffic and customized POI alerts, useful for warning drivers about upcoming selected stores or even speed traps.

The Magellan RoadMate 760 builds on the unparalleled ease-of-use of the Magellan RoadMate family with the SayWhere™ text-to-speech voice guidance feature, an industry first that minimizes the driver’s need to look at the unit for directions by adding street names to the voice guidance.

In addition to other new capabilities, now drivers can integrate custom POIs, including speed trap locations currently popular on the Internet, and program an audio alert function. The user can download up to 1 Million custom POIs from any user group website that publishes files in one of seven compatible formats, organize them into files and categories and set an alarm for each category to alert the driver when he approaches a POI from that category.

Drivers will also benefit from the system’s built-in SmartDetour feature, which gives them the control to navigate around traffic jams and construction delays. When the vehicle is stopped en route for a driver-determined length of time, a detour icon appears on the screen, giving the driver the option to choose from other routes offered by the system.

“The Magellan brand has become synonymous with ease of use, convenience and portability when it comes to vehicle navigation,” said Christian Bubenheim, vice president and general manager of Thales Navigation consumer business unit. “The Magellan RoadMate 760 is just one more example of our objective to cater to the needs of all drivers, putting them more in control while on the road.

Multi-Destination Routing Makes a Long Day of Driving a Snap

Those who travel to numerous destinations in one day will appreciate the Multi-Destination Routing function. Up to 20 destinations can be entered for one trip, and 20 trips can be saved per user for future use. With new Route Optimization the Magellan RoadMate 760 can automatically sort multiple destinations by shortest distance to find the best route between addresses. Especially useful for mobile professionals, this feature can also come in handy for vacationers taking a driving tour of wineries, historical landmarks, museums or other attractions.
