New Magellan® RoadMate™ 3050T and 6000T to include Live Traffic updates from RAC Trafficmaster
London, UK. 16th August 2006 --- Thales’ navigation business, a leading global innovator of outdoor and vehicle navigation solutions, announced today two new additions to its range, the Magellan RoadMate 3050T and Magellan RoadMate™ 6000T, both supported by live traffic updates.
The Magellan RoadMate 3050T and 6000T cater to drivers’ needs for out-of-the-box routing, traffic avoidance, multi-media functions and features that simplify driving while eliminating the frustration, waste of time and fear of getting lost. Combining the award-winning Magellan user interface with the advanced speed and accuracy of Magellan NavEngine™ routing technology, an Intel XScale® processor and real-time traffic information through RDS-TMC.
Both new models come equipped with live traffic data from RAC’s Trafficmaster Telematics’ (RTT). The traffic data is sent to the Magellan navigation device through the RDS-TMC system and is integrated with its SmartDetour™ software that automatically routes drivers around congestion.
The Magellan RoadMate 3050T integrates a wide array of technologies and offers optimal driving comfort:
Real-time traffic information and re-routing through congested or busy roads and motorways provided by Trafficmaster FREE of charge during the first month. Outside Great Britain, access to traffic information is granted for all available public RDS-TMC systems at no additionnal cost.

Preloaded with fixed radar point locations in France, Germany, the UK and most other European countries

SmartDetour™, a free, integrated feature giving drivers the option to route around motorway traffic

QuickSpell™ technology intelligently sorts and searches through address entries with minimal keystrokes to aid quick and easy destination searches.

Multi-Destination routing to let users pre-program and plan upcoming trips with multiple stops

Smart Volume safely increases the volume, without hands leaving the wheel for a second.

Intuitive interface aids destination selection and 3.5 inch colour, touch-screen display.

Multimedia capabilities with MP3/ WMA and digital photo access through previously installed SD cards

The 3050T also comes pre-loaded with maps of 27 countries on a 4GB hard disk.

Weighing only 245 grams, the unit’s anti-glare screen means drivers can clearly see the 3D bird’s eye view to their final destination.
1 million downloadable customised points of interest
Along with the features listed above, the Magellan RoadMate 6000T goes on to provide additional top-of-the-range in-car navigation features for the discerning GPS navigation enthusiast:
The very latest Bluetooth technology is offered in the 6000T, enabling the driver to make and receive calls using the integrated speaker microphone and speaker in the device.
