Magellan Maestro 3000

Magellan ended the week today with the Maestro 3000 series, a new entry into the fiercely competitive budget GPS field. Every model takes the core design of the widescreen Maestro 4000 and puts it into a smaller, 3.5-inch shape that drives the cost down and makes the unit more portable. Storage is still handled through SD cards despite the smaller profile.

The starter 3100 model ($300) has standard GPS features such as 3D mapping, auto-rerouting, and points of interest; the 3140 sells for $400 with an AAA TourBook for vacations and roadside help, Bluetooth for hands-free calls, and a text-to-speech voice guidance system that speaks street names. Both Maestro receivers will be available soon, starting this month for the 3100 and May for the 3140.
