Large RoadMate GPS
Product pages for an unannounced Magellan GPS, the RoadMate 1700, have leaked on several online retailers such as Tiger GPS. The 1700 matches many of the same features as the rest of the RoadMate series, but adds a larger 7-inch display. Otherwise, the GPS offers a AAA TourBook, 6 million points of interest, text-to-speech and multiple-point routing.
Although the large screen size could simply be designed for vehicles such as RVs or trucks, the feature places a wider gap between standalone GPS devices and the rising popularity of smartphone-based systems restricted to a smaller display.
The RoadMate 1700 is listed with a pre-order price of $300 and is expected to ship sometime in the fall. [via GPS Review]
