The device features an extra loud speaker, an external audio/video input for a backup camera and a 7 in. glass capacitive touch panel. 

The RC9485T-LMB is compatible with the Magellan SmartGPS Eco cloud, giving drivers easy access to time and money-saving content such as real-time fuel pricing information, weather (including five-day forecast and overlays), truck speed limit warnings and IP traffic.

“Our new RoadMate RC9485T-LMB Android navigation device offers comprehensive navigation solutions by providing best-in-class software as well as unsurpassed connectivity, and real-time content delivered by our SmartGPS Eco cloud,” said Stig Pedersen, associate vice president, product management. “We are very excited to be showing our new device at this year’s CES and look forward to the positive response from attendees.”
