Transform your iPhone or iPod touch into an innovative 3-in-1GPS vehicle navigation solution with the Magellan Premium Car Kit.
Santa Clara, California-based Magellan, a leader of innovative GPS devices for vehicles, fitness, outdoor and mobile navigation, announces the availability of Magellan GPS Car Kit to provide motorists with a total solution for safety and convenience when using their iPhone or iPod touch while driving a vehicle.
The new Magellan GPS Car Kit enhances the driver’s navigation experience with a built-in GPS receiver, Bluetooth pairing to deliver a superior hands-free calling experience, in-car charging for iPhones and iPod touch, a powerful noise-cancelling speakerphone, and the ability to enjoy music and voice-guided turn-by-turn directions through the car’s audio system.
The Magellan GPS Car Kit transforms an iPhone (4S, 4, 3GS, 3G) or iPod touch (2nd, 3rd, or 4thgeneration) into an innovative, complete GPS vehicle navigation solution that enables motorists to safely and legally integrate these devices with their vehicle for use while driving.
A powerful, integrated GPS receiver enhances the navigation performance of an iPhone and adds GPS reception to an iPod touch. The Magellan GPS Car Kit works with the Magellan RoadMate App and is also compatible with most GPS navigation apps.
“The Magellan GPS Car Kit is much more than a docking system—it gives drivers a unique, total solution for maximizing their iPhone or iPod touch when used in the car or recreational vehicle; and a safe, legal, and effective way to navigate in confidence,” said Stig Pedersen, Associate Vice President of Product Management for Magellan.
The Magellan GPS Car Kit connects via Bluetooth to deliver a superior hands-free calling experience and allows the driver to safely answer calls, reject a call, redial the last number, and activate an iPhone’s voice dialing feature if equipped.
A powerful, amplified speaker with volume control enables the driver to clearly hear calls, music, and voice-guided navigation. An audio line out port enables the GPS Car Kit to connect to a vehicle’s audio system so the driver can listen to their iPhone or iPod touch through the car’s speakers.
The Magellan GPS Car Kit easily accommodates most hard-shell cases or silicon skins for maximum flexibility when docking an iPhone or iPod touch into the GPS Car Kit cradle. Users can quickly and easily secure the GPS Car Kit to their windshield or dashboard and adjust for either portrait or landscape viewing.
Drivers never need to worry about low battery power in their iPhone or iPod touch. The Magellan GPS Car Kit automatically powers and charges the devices while driving.
The Magellan GPS Car Kit is available from MagellanGPS.com, Amazon.com, and other Magellan authorized retail partners for $99.99 (MSRP).
The Magellan RoadMate App is available for $49.99 (U.S.) and $59.99 (North America) from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch.
