Magellan RoadMate Finds its Way to the App Store

Megellan announced the immediate availability of its RoadMate turn by turn GPS navigation app for the iPhone on Wednesday. The application lets an iPhone work as a turn-by-turn direction system for drivers and pedestrians and includes maps for North America.

The application includes Magellan's OneTouch interface, text to speach directions, 3D landmarks, highway lane assistance, over six million points of interest, Address Book integration, and more.

Magellan will also be releasing a car mount kit in December that includes a built-in charger, an amplified speaker, Bluetooth support, and a GPS receiver for improved navigation accuracy. The kit also lets iPod touch users take advantage of the RoadMate software in their car.

RoadMate 2010 North America is priced at US$79.99 and is available for download at Apple's iTunes-based App Store. The Premium Car Kit will be priced at $129.99.
