Indeed, one might say it's physically identical. But don't be deceived by its innocuous appearance. It has some fine new features, the most exciting being text-to-speech so it can tell you to "turn left onto Hampton Road" rather than just "turn left in 300 yards". Also worthy of interest is something called SmartDetour, a neat feature that'll automatically replot your route if you're sitting in a jam for long. </p> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-legacy-url"> <div class="field-label">Legacy URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> /news/satnav-and-gps/stuff/gps-gets-road-names </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Magellan Roadmate 760 Fri, 24 Jun 2005 05:00:00 +0000 admin 393 at
