There are people who are gifted with a good sense of direction, as well as the ability to navigate unfamiliar city streets and highways. These people have a talent that most of us simply donâ€™t have.
For the greater majority, getting lost in the city or taking the wrong route or exit has become an unfortunately familiar experience. Thanks to the arrival of Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Navigation technology, we can now enjoy a hassle-free travel experience.
The Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Navigation Device is one such gadget: specifically designed to help us find our way in and out of cities, towns, beach areas (or wherever else we wish to visit). Maestro is the latest in Magellanâ€™s line of automotive GPS devices, and the first one to feature a vivid and beautiful widescreen.
Although the Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS looks deceptively simple, the device is capable of performing sophisticated tasks easily. Featuring the BE THERE guidance system and the SiRFstar III chipset, youâ€™ll reach your destination safe and sound. Simply enter the address and let the unitâ€™s voice and visual aids navigate you through every twist and turn in the United States and Canada.
The Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Navigation Deviceâ€™s slick 4.3 inch touch screen provides ample viewing space, so you wonâ€™t have to squint just to see what avenue youâ€™re on. It is very easy to navigate menus, thanks to generously-sized icons. Thereâ€™s no risk of breaking the antenna, since it’s neatly integrated into the main unit. Similarly, the stable docking cradle and windshield mount are of exceptional quality: The unit stays firmly in place (even during bad road conditions).
This GPS device also comes with a wealth of features that makes its $350 price a definite bargain. The AAA Tourbook guide travel information helps you find the best restaurants and hotels in specific areas. If you need road assistance, it takes one touch of the “tow truck” icon for a quick connection to AAA Roadside Assistance using your Bluetooth enabled phone. The Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Navigation Device even allows you to make hands-free phone calls, perfect for the busy executive who needs to make calls on the go.
Additional features such as SmartDetour, Auto Re-route, Multi-destination Routing and a live traffic feed (for which a subscription is required), reaching your destination becomes even more effortless. Without a doubt, youâ€™ll never look at driving the same way again once you start using the Magellan Maestro 4040 GPS Navigation Device.
