  • 'Two-Turns' visibility prepares the driver with valuable information about the lane to stay in or enter when approaching the next turning location.
  • 'Landmark Guidance' gives drivers a more intuitive way to navigate with audible alerts to familiar landmarks such as gas stations, fast food and other easily-seen places.
  • Driving status reports help drivers log their hours of service and driving status to record state mileage for IFTA fuel logging.
  • Integrated Bluetooth® wireless technology enables drivers to safely talk hands-free when the GPS device is paired with a compatible Bluetooth phone. 
  • 'OneTouch™,' another Magellan-exclusive feature, enables drivers to bookmark and assign a button to their favorite destinations or searches for faster access.
