Magellan Maestro 4700 satnav launches

The Magellan Maestro 4700, a satnav that crams in just about every feature you could ever need while behind the wheel, has just been unveiled. Come meet and greet this great new GPS for your motor in our official photo gallery!

The 4.7-inch Magellan Maestro 4700 won’t jump online for up the minute petrol prices like a TomTom LIVE satnav, but it handles just about everything else, and with no subscription charges pocketing you every month either. Want to Bluetooth while you tootle? It’ll do that. Want to know the traffic hotspots at different times of day? It’ll do that too, with predictive traffic. There’s even a Find Your Car mode onboard the Magellan Maestro 4700 to help you remember where you parked in a shopping centre carpark-plex.

As you can see too in the gallery, the 3D landmarks on the Magellan Maestro 4700 almost look like almost iPhone game quality, so there’s really no excuse for getting lost anymore.

While the Magellan Maestro 4700 ships stateside from July 15 for $299 (£185), Magellan says there are no plans for European release just yet, but if the device revives the brand in a big way, don’t rule it out.

    I have the 4700 and is on the mark about 10? on – better than Garmin which is at 30? +
    What I like about the 4700 vs the Garmin is that if you take another rout it tracks that new rout in the existing rout instead of like the Garmin which keeps wanting to recalculate and a lot of time is wasted while driving. I have always used a Garmin but after owning the Magellan Maestro 4700 I will not be going back to Garmin. One extra note the software updates for Magellan is half that of the Garmin which is a Big Plus i my Book. One more note -it doesn’t have a mp3 installed in it but I am after a GPS not a mp3 player.
