iPhone App of the Week: Magellan RoadMate Points You in the Right Direction

Magellan’s RoadMate North America App has been out for a while, but the new version that just went live packs in enough new features to make it seem brand new. Yelp and Google local search are now both fully integrated into the app, turning it into a one-stop app for planning a night out. Users also get unlimited access to Magellan’s map updates and traffic services. The voice-guided turn-by-turn GPS navigation is still present, keeping the app a safe, hands-off choice for drivers. For complete, detailed maps of the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico, along with traffic, updates, and GPS navigation, you’re going to have to shell out $59.99, but if you don’t want to get a separate GPS device for your car, the Magellan RoadMate App might not be a bad idea. If you go the iTunes App Store now, the app is on sale for $39.99 for a limited time.
