Magellan Announces Off Road Vehicle Navigation Platform for Automotive OEMs and Power Sport OEMs

Magellan announced its new Off Road Vehicle (ORV) Navigation platform available to automotive OEMs and power sport vehicle OEMs at the upcoming TU-Automotive Detroit trade show (booth # M168) June 3-4, 2015. Designed specifically for the off-roading enthusiast, the Magellan ORV Navigation platform allows off-road enthusiasts to plan, track and save trail rides and dirt miles, and add pictures and comments to trails. The Magellan ORV platform includes an online user community, where riders can plan and save their trails, share trails with other riders, add pictures and comments to trails, and search for new trails. In addition, the Magellan ORV platform includes the most comprehensive outdoor trail maps available for off-road enthusiasts, covering all 50 states and Canada. Trail Maps: The Magellan ORV platform's trail maps are cloud based, dynamic and will continue to grow and be improved by both Magellan and the user community. Magellan's detailed ORV maps include: 3D Terrain & contour elevation lines; National, State & Provincial service roads and trails; National, State & Provincial Parks and Recreational Vehicle Areas; Scenic Byways; Crowd-sourced trails; Food, Gas, Lodging, and General Service POI; 3rd Party Trail Guides. Online User Community: Off-road enthusiasts have exciting stories to save and share. The Magellan ORV navigation platform gives off-roaders, campers, and anyone enjoying the outdoors on a vehicle the tools to plan, experience, and capture their activities in a story format, that they can keep or share with friends, family, or the larger off-road and outdoor communities. Users can add comments and pictures to their trail rides, and share with other members of the Magellan ORV community. Magellan ORV community users can also share posts and pictures to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram directly from the Magellan ORV app. As users share their trail rides, they garner community ranking and earn achievement badges. iOS and Android Companion Smartphone Apps: To be a resource for the entire off-road community, Magellan's standard iOS and Android ORV apps will be available in the iTunes and Google Play stores. This will enable any off-road enthusiast to find trails and record, save and share their own adventures. Designed for Auto OEMs: Magellan's smartphone driven ORV navigation platform is compatible with all major infotainment platforms, including Weblink, CarPlay and Android Auto. The ORV platform can be branded by automotive OEMs so their customers have a consistent brand experience while planning a trail ride, and in the vehicle.

Magellan and CalAmp Announce Availability of the CalAmp Android-Based Mobile Data Terminal

Magellan and CalAmp announced the availability of the CalAmp Android-based mobile data terminal (MDT-7) featuring Magellan's professional-grade fleet navigation software. Designed to increase safety and convenience, the MDT-7 provides fleet operators in the U.S. and Canada with access to advanced navigation features such as speed limit and speed alert notifications, turn-by-turn directions, trip planning enhancements and a collection of fleet-specific cloud services. The new solution is available now and will be demonstrated in CalAmp's booth # C152 at the upcoming TU-Automotive Detroit 2015 show on June 3 and 4 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Detroit, Michigan. The CalAmp MDT-7 is available with one of two Magellan navigation software bundles out of the box. With one package, customers receive the Fleet Consumer Navigation variant for automotive fleet implementations such as taxis and limousines that do not require commercial trucking attributes. With the other package, customers receive the Magellan Fleet Navigation application, which provides a host of trucking and fleet features including customizable truck routes based on vehicle dimensions, junction view to guide drivers to correct lanes for merging and exiting, highway lane assist to safely navigate complex highway interchanges and points of interests such as weigh stations, truck stops and lodging. The Magellan Fleet Navigation application is also fleet protocol-support ready, offering hours of service (HOS) and state mileage for international fuel tax agreement (IFTA) fuel logging, automatic on board recording device (AOBRD) capability, estimated time of arrival (ETA) protocols and more. CalAmp will also be making the Magellan SmartGPS Eco cloud service available on the MDT-7 to provide customers with access to real-time content such as fuel pricing, map updates, weather, traffic reports and alerts. CalAmp and Magellan are working to make the fleet-specific cloud services available to a wider audience through aftermarket channels including the CalAmp Appstore and Magellan's online portal.
