It really is some time since I wrote about Magellan products, namely GPS navigators. As I don't own a car or engine-powered vehicle, I didn't find the use for a navigator, plus I can take directions if needed, but I still like the company, even if only for the name, taken from the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who is most known for the fact that he was one of the first to cross all the meridians of the globe and that he was the first European to lead an expedition across
the Pacific Ocean.
Now to get back to our business, the above described manufacturer just made the new SE4 GPS model available at Best Buy. The first thing that should be said about this is the fact that this is a budged priced GPS navigator, followed by the technical details and features. There's a 4.3-inch touchscreen brought by the SE4 to display its maps and aids, as well as the contained Navteq map data for 48 contiguous US states, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. Thanks to the turn-by-turn direction guide, the SE4 can direct you to any of the preloaded six million points of interest
. Also, the navigator has the capability of planning the route for multiple destinations.
Even if a GPS navigator is supposedly to be used in car, therefore having a power supply, the SE4's rechargeable lithium ion battery pack will also provide an operation time of up to three hours. That's probably for the cases where you have to park your car and go on foot and the streets are too windup to handle on your own (I can really relate to that). The first thing I told you about the Magellan SE4 was that it is a budged-priced GPS navigator, so here's the price - $120.
