The new RoadMate 2240T-LM offers the security of Free Lifetime Map Updates and the convenience of Free Lifetime Traffic Alerts. Drive knowing you have the latest road changes in your navigation. And should there be a reported traffic event on your route, the RoadMate 2240T-LM will chart the most efficient course around it. In addition to these two high end features, this GPS navigator boasts a rich set of new features!
One of the more unique features allows you to choose between landscape and portrait viewing mode. Do you want to see more of what's ahead on a long roadtrip or do you want to see more of what's around you while driving through the city. You choose!
Some of the new features make navigation easier. With the all new Landmark Guidance your routing instructions use landmarks instead of street names, making it a more intuitive way to navigate. You'll hear instructions like "In 200 feet, turn left at the Shell Gas Station". Then the upgraded Junction View generates realistic images of freeway signs and arrows provide advanced warning guiding you to the correct lane to make driving easier, safer and less stressful.
Traffic Camera Alerts by PhantomALERT are included at no extra charge for one year. These audible and visual warnings alert you to fixed red light and speed cameras. This is verified crowd source data that you refresh on your unit by the free Content Manager from Magellan. You can even become one of the many reporters on the street by submitting your own discoveries or rating the reliability of the alerts you are shown. Premium content is available for an extra cost which includes blackspots (high accident areas), school zones, and dangerous intersections.
Best Parking is another great feature makes parking in the city a much easier affair. Best Parking provides parking garage locations with both their hours of operation and their entrance location. Choose the garage that is close to your destination and open. Once you have selected a garage you are guided directly to the entrance. No more searching for how to get in!
The integrated AAA Tourbook gives you detailed information on hotels, restaurants, and attractions so that you have the information you need to make your destination decisions. And what happens if you break down out on the road? On the special "Where am I?" screen you'll not only have your present location given in terms that a tow truck driver can understand, you'll also have the AAA phone number listed and a place for you to enter in your AAA membership number. No more digging through your wallet or glove compartment!
The RoadMate navigation experience is both intuitive and robust. The OneTouch Favorites Menu allows you quick access to your favorite places or even your favorite searches. Enter addresses quickly and accurately with Magellan's Quickspell which guides to a correct spelling. SayWhere technology speaks the street names throughout the preloaded maps of the 50 United States, Canada and Puerto Rico.
