Magellan unveils new RoadMate GPS for commercial drivers

Magellan has announced a new product in its commercial GPS series this week at the International CES event. The Magellan RoadMate RC9485T-LMB is a 7 in. Android truck GPS navigation system optimized for independent truckers and professional commercial drivers. 

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.”

The device also offers multiple driver log-in so more than one driver can log hours-of-service and driving status, track hours, and record state mileage for IFTA fuel logging. Also, the Roadmate features customizable truck routing, multi-stop routing, free lifetime traffic alerts, junction view, landmark guidance, highway lane assist, exit POIs and integrated Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology.
