Santa Clara, Calif. - Magellan began shipping the Magellan Maestro
4700 portable GPS device offering a 4.7-inch screen, Bluetooth and some voice
commands.

The new Maestro also offers predictive traffic, which analyzes
traffic patterns when calculating a route to help avoid delays. While it offers
voice control for searching points of interest it does not support voice
address entry.

Other features of the new Maestro 4700 include "Find your car"
with pedestrian mode and 3D landmarks. Suggested retail price is $299.99.

The purchase
of Magellan by Mitac, which also owns Mio, was announced last December.
