Magellan Roadmate 1200

Magellan today took its opportunity at the SEMA car equipment show to release the Roadmate 1200. This new GPS is made to lower the price floor for entry level GPS by offering the same features as other units at a lower price. The 3.5-inch touchscreen navigator covers much of the expected features with a 3D mode, rerouting to avoid certain roads, and 1.3 million points of interest accessible from the built-in maps.

The built-in storage supplies NavTeq-created maps of the continental US as well as Hawaii and Puerto Rico; more can be added by SD card for driving to Canada and other regions. Magellan has yet to detail when the Roadmate 1200 will be available in shops but expects it to be available soon for $230, roughly $20 less than some of the less expensive GPS units already available in shops.
