Newest Models of Magellan Car GPS Systems (2018/2019)


Like its famous Portugese explorer namesake, Magellan is all about charting the unfamiliar. The company makes the Roadmate and Maestro lines of portable car GPS systems, alongside the eXplorist line of outdoor handheld navigation products.

The Roadmate family consists of three product groups, with devices coming in a range of screen sizes from 3.5" to 7". The Auto Series provides essential navigation features, the RV Series adds RV-specific routes plus a travel guide and campground directory, while the Commercial Series adds truck-specific features such as customizable truck routes based on vehicle dimension, and also logging and reporting for driving hours and mileage.

Magellan Roadmate devices make use of the following suffixes: (T) free lifetime traffic updates, (LM) free lifetime map updates, (MU) one time map update. The product number indicates screen size, with higher numbers used for devices with bigger screens.
