Magellan has released its RoadMate 2010 North America application for the iPhone and iPod touch.
The application’s most interesting features include:
- OneTouch Favorites Menu
- Spoken Street Name Guidance
- Address Book Integration
- In-app Music Control
Magellan is also planning to release a car kit to compete with TomTom’s. Their Premium Car Kit will have a fully adjustable rotating mount, enhanced GPS signal with its built-in receiver, and a noise-canceling speakerphone with Bluetooth hands-free calling.
Magellan’s RoadMate application is available now for the introductory price of $79.99. Their Car Kit is coming soon but no exact release date or pricing has been announced.
There have been several GPS navigation apps in the App Store but now that there are two big names (Magellan and TomTom) in the game the competition will really start to heat up.
Update 11/30/09: The Magellan Premium GPS Car Kit has shown up on Amazon. The price is $129.99 and the product page says that it will be released on December 11, 2009.
