The Magellan RoadMate North America gives you the SmartGPS experience including maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico onboard your cell phone! This means you won’t lose GPS navigation even when you lose cell reception.
This app is designed to be a navigation device combined with a powerful search tool. Search within a robust Point Of Interest library in addition to the Yelp and Foursquare venues. Select your destination using these methods and either navigate on foot with your iPhone or wirelessly send your destination to the Magellan SmartGPS navigator to drive to your selection. You have the choice of using which navigation tool is right for the job!

The included navigation features give you a rich turn-by-turn experience:
• Turn-by-turn – Voice navigation with street names

Please Beware Of Two Year Outdated Maps
The problem is the App is updated only once a year whereas WAZE is updated daily, TomTom at least monthly and Garmin NA at least Quarterly. I am retired and for supplemental income I deliver new Toyota's to major cities in TX and OK. When the maps are accurate, Magellan NA with the PhantonAlert for traffic re routing and Map display blows the competition away! School zone alerts which in TX are wildly very inaccurate! This morning I used WAZE and my Wife used Magellan NA and she arrived at our joint destination 42 minutes after me because so many map inaccuracies but the App was great at avoiding delays & accidents but should have used new toll roads which the competition began using two years ago!!!! WAZE is fantastic at finding a desired destination, routing to the destination and the ETA's are exceptionally accurate if no traffic delays but exceptionally poor at re routing around traffic!
If the app crashes delete and reinstall !
Just a FYI, the new version was still crashing for me. Once I deleted the app and reinstalled it now works correctly.
This app is 5 stars unfortunately I deducted 1 star for the PV team missing this bug.
Otherwise great job.
The new version Crashes after the maps appear and you touch the one touch button.
-------------------------------Even with the new IOS maps and Google maps, Magellan is still the best option for turn by turn navigation.
Magellan has out done them selves this time. This update has the other GPS app makers scrambling back to the drawing board.
Magellan is again #1
Make updates a smaller size.
Make the next update a universal App
Add location based temperature (Nice to know if the road is frozen)
Worked Great on my Vacation !
I preprogrammed all the sites my wife wanted to see and one for getting back to the hotel. Talk about no hassle driving Magellan Navigator worked like a charm.
5 stars for listening to your customers
Thanks again !
Great app...but needs major updating on maps
The app is well designed and easy to use. The problem I am having is that the map downloaded with the app (current version) appears to be about 2 years out of date, based on a newer freeway that is incomplete on the map in the Washington DC area. Magellan support states that they are working on a vehicle for the update of maps, but does not have a timeline as to when this will be available. This is highly problematic for me. There should be a way to update the maps in the application, so that the map is as current as new Magellan GPS devices. This method should be independent of application updates, such as through SmartGPS Eco.
