Magellan RoadMate 3000T GPS plays music, avoids traffic


Carry it around in your pocket, mount it on your dash, or hand it off to your backseat driver. No matter where you put the Magellan RoadMate 3000T GPS device, you’ll get to enjoy a whole whack of nifty features, including a built-in MP3 player.

The integrated battery means that there is no need for an external power source (read: no messy wires), and the 3.5-inch anti-glare touchscreen is a great size for a device so compact. Choose from either three-dimensional or more conventional 2D maps, and receive turn-by-turn directions, including the optional TrafficKit that helps you get around the clogged up roadways.

A couple of automatic things – SmartVolume for increasing the sound when speeds exceed 45mph, and Night View for increasing the brightness when it gets a little late at night – make for great ease of use.

Other features include a hefty 4.5 gigabyte hard drive, SD expansion slot, and a reported six million points of interest. Expect the Magellan RoadMate 3000T portable GPS device to ship near the end of next month with a price of about $525.
