Magellan Introduces the Maestro 5310

Magellan has introduced the new 5-inch widescreen Maestro 5310. Magellan is previewing the new device in Las Vegas at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show this week (booth no. 31247).

Magellan's new Maestro 5310 was developed to better meet the needs of a fast-growing segment of consumers, Baby Boomers, who are seeking larger-sized displays and easy-to-use electronics. With its 5-inch WQVGA full-color display and an ultra-thin industrial design, the Maestro 5310 increases Magellan's easy-to-use classic menu interface, images and maps by 35 percent for better readability and increased safety on the roads.

The Maestro 5310 includes 6 million searchable POIs, preloaded maps of the 50 United States, Canada and Puerto Rico; proprietary Say Where text-to-speech technology that announces street names; integrated live traffic with free 3-month subscription to Magellan's real-time traffic service; integrated AAA TourBook guide travel information.

The Maestro 5310 will be compatible with Magellan VantagePoint, the only desktop application on the market that helps people manage their GPS maps, information, and other content and easily sync it to their devices. Through VantagePoint, Magellan customers can personalize and expand their GPS experience.

The Maestro 5310 will ship with a windshield mount and cradle, a cigarette lighter adapter, protective pouch, A/C power adapter, USB data cable and an adhesive disk for dash mounting.
