The new Magellan RoadMate App transforms an iPhone into a full-featured GPS navigator with turn-by-turn voice guidance and spoken street names. Fully optimized for iPhone 4, the app delivers stunning visuals and enables turn-by-turn navigation to run in the background while users are on a call or while using another app simultaneously.

The Magellan RoadMate North America App is also compatible with the 3rd and 4th generation iPod touch. With the addition of Magellan Premium Car Kit (sold separately), users can transform their iPod touch into an instant GPS navigator.

The Magellan RoadMate North America App is available for $59.99 from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at here.
^For maps and traffic data, “lifetime” is defined as the life of the product or 3 years, whichever is reached first, or until Magellan no longer receives relevant map and traffic data.
