Magellan® Hands-Free Navigation Solution for iPhone and iPod Touch Puts Drivers on the Road to Romance


If You Love Somebody, Give The Gift Of Safer Driving

SANTA CLARA, Calif.  (02/14/2011) - This Valentine's Day, consider putting some new "direction" in your romance – and giving yourself a little peace of mind – the Magellan Premium Car Kit will help your loved one navigate hands-free to that special destination for a quiet rendezvous together.

The Magellan Premium Car Kit is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 and the iPod Touch models 2G, 3G and 4G, providing drivers with an innovative, hands free vehicle mount solution. The Magellan Premium Car Kit includes a powerful, built-in GPS receiver that provides faster and more accurate location information to the driver's Apple iPhone and enables an iPod Touch to be used as an in-vehicle GPS device.

The Premium Car Kit works with virtually any vehicle navigation app, including the popular Magellan RoadMate app for iPhone. It features an amplified speaker for crystal clear directions and enhanced Bluetooth hands-free calling, a built-in noise canceling microphone for full duplex speakerphone operation, and an auxiliary audio output for connection to a car stereo.

The adjustable mount securely rotates iPhone to either portrait or landscape mode for optimal positioning and widescreen route display and accommodates most hard-shell cases or silicon skins.

"At Magellan, our primary concern is driver safety, and the safe use of handheld devices by drivers is a critical issue. Our Premium Car Kit was designed to optimize the hands-free use of iPhones as navigation devices by enhancing the GPS tracking function and providing an ideal mounting platform. When combined together with our RoadMate app, this must-have companion product will provide iPhone users with the ultimate road navigation tool," said Mike Wagner, Senior Director, Product Marketing Manager for Magellan.

The Magellan Premium Car Kit is compatible with the iPhone 3G, 3GS and 4 and the iPod Touch models 2G, 3G and 4G.

Available now, the car kit retails for $129.99 MSRP and will be available at Amazon.com, Best Buy, Apple Stores and MagellanGPS.com.
