Magellan announced the launch of its new 7-inch RV GPS, the Magellan RoadMate RV9490T-LMB, that offers real-time cloud-connected information to RVers. According to a press release, the model provides Magellan’s safety, convenience and trip-planning features as well as additional RV-friendly functions.
“Magellan’s ongoing innovation reflects our commitment to the RV community, who want more on-the-road information and a more enjoyable RVing journey,” said Stig Pedersen, associate vice president of product management for Magellan. “The RV9490T-LMB features customizable routes per your RV profile, pre-loaded RV specific points of interest (POI) such as the Good Sam Campground Directory, RV dump stations, real-time weather information and alerts, the cheapest fuel locations, plus premium safety features that optimize the RVing experience.”
The Magellan RoadMate RV9490T-LMB features a high sensitivity touch panel, a brighter and clearer screen, and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity. This allows for the real-time display of weather and fuel price information and gives users the freedom to choose how they connect, when they connect and what they want to download.
Users receive current location-based information on their RoadMate navigator by connecting to either a Wi-Fi hotspot to pre-load information before they leave home or on the road via smartphone Bluetooth connection when no WiFi connection is available.
The Magellan RoadMate RV9490T-LMB will be available in the second quarter through Magellan’s consumer electronics and online partners including Camping World and Amazon.com for $349.99 (MSRP).
