The RoadMate 360 employs Magellan's TrueFix technology to ensure reliable accuracy within three meters. TrueFix tracks 12 GPS satellites plus two Wide-Area Augmentation Satellites (WAAS) to find your position on the map, so you'll always know where you are and where you're going. And the maps are easy to decipher thanks to the 2.9-by-2.2-inch high-resolution TFT LCD full-color display. The display's three guidance screens include TrueView, which shows a detailed view of the actual road layout, with upcoming turns and info on intersection maneuvers; MapView, with super-bright, easy-to-read, zoomable icons and text dispersed on a detailed, high-resolution map; and a Maneuver List, which tells you when and where to expect turns along the route.
Meanwhile, Magellan's Trip Planner makes it easier than ever to navigate journeys with multiple destinations. Should you need to get gas, visit the ATM, and stop by the florist before heading to the restaurant for Mom's birthday, you can simply preprogram your trip, and the RoadMate 360 figures out the easiest route. It's much less hassle than re-entering destination points after every stop. Other ways of navigating include choosing the shortest route, finding a path with the fewest toll roads or freeways, or choosing a route with the most freeways. And should one route prove problematic because of heavy traffic or a closed road, the RoadMate 360 will automatically calculate a new path.
Finally, the RoadMate 360 is remarkably easy to use. Installation is effortless--simply mount it on the windshield, plug in the power cord, and you're ready to go. The unit requires no additional wiring, and users can transfer the device from car to car or simply tuck it in a briefcase or suitcase when on the road. Once you sit down in your rental car, you'll have a comprehensive map at your fingertips. In addition, the unit automatically turns on each time you start the car, so you don't even need to mess with an on/off button.
Additional features include an address book that stores up to 200 personal or business destinations per user (for a total of 600); an Instant Locate function that immediately describes your current location, a must in case of emergency or need for roadside assistance; and QuickSpell technology, which suggests street and city matches after you type the first few letters of a destination.
The RoadMate 360 measures 6.2 by 3.1 by 1.2 inches (W by H by D) and is backed by a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
