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.
