Magellan Corp's MAP 410 Receives ASA's Best Of Show Award At ICAST


San Dimas, CA   (July 12, 1999) Magellan Corp., a leader in satellite navigation and communication products, recently received a Best of Show Award for its category at the ICAST Show in Chicago. The awards program is sponsored by the American Sportfishing Association (ASA) and it recognizes product innovation and excellence in a variety of new product categories.

The new MAP 410 hand-held GPS receiver offers the perfect combination of GPS, mapping and information technology by providing anglers, boaters and outdoor enthusiasts with the equivalent of a road map/fishing guide/satellite navigator in one compact package.

The MAP 410 is an electronic map and information source that shows you not just the "where," but also the "there." The receiver helps you travel from home to the outdoors with its built-in basemap of coastlines, cities, lakes, rivers and railroads, plus interstates and state highways. The MapSend Land USATM CD-ROM makes land navigation just as easy. This CD provides enhanced road detail and over 250,000 Points of Interest (POI) such as parks, campgrounds, tourist attractions, highway exit ramp services, and more. Upload this information to the MAP 410 and view addresses and phone numbers right on the receiver's screen.

For boaters and anglers, a marine database includes floating and fixed buoys, lighthouses and radio beacons that can be identified with unique icons for quick, easy recognition.

For more precise marine navigation, just download C-MAP NT CompactTM nautical charts from the optional MapSend MarineTM CD-ROM. Once a chart is downloaded to the MAP 410, an ultra-sharp display (240 x 120 pixel resolution) that¹s 25 percent larger than competitive models, shows information and detail on depth contours and coastlines, navigation buoys and markers, plus marinas, boat ramps and other facilities.
