Magellan, a leader of innovative GPS devices for vehicles, fitness, outdoor and mobile navigation, today announced the Magellan® RoadMate® 9250T-LMB vehicle navigation GPS to provide consumers with a complete safety and convenience solution featuring Bluetooth® 'Safe Texting' and an extra-large 7-inch display designed for large vehicles and people who need a larger screen for more comfortable viewing.

The Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB GPS includes a 7-inch high-resolution touch screen that gives drivers the highest level of viewing comfort when reading maps and other content on the GPS. Included with the RoadMate 9250T-LMB is a fully adjustable, heavy duty extension mount for positioning the GPS on or below the dashboard or off a windshield, making the GPS convenient to view especially in larger size vehicles.

When paired with a compatible Bluetooth cell phone, the Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB GPS serves as an in-car speakerphone, and also gives drivers the ability to quickly and safely respond to callers with a pre-written text message telling them they are driving. When a driver receives a call, they press a single button on the 'Safe Texting' screen to select from five pre-written text messages that are automatically populated by the GPS with vehicle location data. Pre-defined text messages include 'I'm driving. I'll call you back.','I'm on (street name).', and 'I'm driving in (city name)'. Drivers can also create their own custom text messages in the two open spaces in the menu.

The Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB GPS also includes 'Portrait Mode' viewing, a unique new feature that gives drivers a choice between viewing their navigation details in landscape or portrait viewing mode. In the portrait mode, drivers can view expanded roadway details including the conditions ahead, which is valuable information when on road trips or in unfamiliar locations. Conversely, in traditional landscape viewing mode, which is most suitable for city driving, the GPS displays roadway details that are around the vehicle.

"As part of our safety series, we are incorporating the newest features into our line of large-screen GPS devices for drivers of large vehicles or those who need a larger GPS display to see content better," said Stig Pedersen, Associate Vice President of Product Management for Magellan. "We are including a heavy duty extension mount so drivers have the flexibility of viewing their RoadMate 9250T-LMB in any position -- even below the dash, without interfering with their view of the road."

An ideal safety companion for the Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB is Magellan's Wireless Back-up Camera ($149.99 MSRP), a 2012 CES Design and Engineering Award Honoree. The combination of compatible Magellan RoadMate vehicle navigation GPS models and the Wireless Back-up Camera (magellangps.com/RoadMate_Back-up-Camera) gives motorists an all-in one solution for increased safety. When the vehicle is placed in reverse, the Magellan RoadMate GPS will automatically switch from navigation mode to become a rear-view monitor that allows the driver to see what is behind the vehicle including children, pets and toys or assists in fitting a vehicle into a tight parking space.

The Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB also includes Magellan's suite of new features. 'Landmark Guidance' gives drivers an easier way to navigate to their destinations by telling them to turn at familiar landmarks such as gas stations, stores or other large, easily-seen places instead of only street names that may be hard to locate and read. 'Traffic Camera Alerts,' powered by PhantomALERT™, warns drivers about upcoming red light and speed cameras on their route. 'Junction View' displays a realistic image of the road and highway signs, and shows drivers the correct lane that the vehicle needs to be in for safe merging and exits during their trip. BestParking.com helps drivers quickly locate parking locations as well as the street to enter them and hours of operation. 'OneTouch™,' another Magellan-exclusive feature, enables drivers to bookmark and assign a button to their favorite destinations or searches for faster access.

Included with the Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB GPS is the AAA/CAA TourBook® which provides drivers with instant access to listings and descriptions of AAA Diamond-rated restaurants, accommodations, attractions, events and campgrounds in the U.S. and Canada, as well as Show Your Card & Save® locations for member discounts, approved auto repair facilities and AAA branch office locations.

Available in late September from MagellanGPS.com and Best Buy, the Magellan RoadMate 9250T-LMB, including the heavy duty extension mount, is $229.99 (MSRP).
