Magellan RoadMate GPS Receiver 1
The Magellan® RoadMate® receiver is a
vehicle navigation product that utilizes
GPS signals from satellites to calculate your
precise location and compute navigational
information that can be used to guide you
to your destination. Knowing its position and
movement, it can then overlay this information
on detailed maps to provide a visual
representation of your location.
With the Magellan RoadMate receiver you can:
Save searches and addresses under the
OneTouch™ menu for fast, convenient access
to favorite destinations.
Store your home address and quickly get
routing details to your home.
Enter and save addresses in your address
book that can be accessed at any time and get
routing information to that address.
Route to an address that you enter using the
QuickSpell™ and Smart City search for easy,
errorless address entry.
Route to any point of interest (POI) that has
been preloaded into your Magellan RoadMate
receiver.
Create a route with multiple destinations.
Handy for business people who need routing
information to many destinations.
View POIs that are near exits ahead of you on
the highway. The Highway Exit POIs function
provides you with a list of gas stations,
restaurants, hotels and auto repair shops
located nearby exits you are approaching
while travelling on the interstate.
Customize your Magellan RoadMate receiver
to meet your needs using the Settings menu.
Receive traffic information so as to avoid delays
in your travel.
The user interface for the Magellan RoadMate
receiver is easy and simple to follow once you
understand the basics. You may never need
to refer to this manual, but if you do, we have
tried to present it in a form that makes it easy
for you to access the function you are trying to
use and follow the steps provided.
The Magellan RoadMate receiver has a built-in
battery so, in most cases, you will be able to
follow these instructions while reading them
on your computer screen without plugging
the Magellan RoadMate receiver to the AC
power using an optional AC power adapter.
You should note that while indoors you
may not get strong enough satellite signals
to compute your location, so your location
information may not be updated. However,
the power of the GPS chipset installed in
the Magellan RoadMate receiver will pick
up satellite signals in some very demanding
locations. You may find that the Magellan
RoadMate receiver is computing a position,
even indoors. Even with the improved GPS
chipset, the receiver may not be able to always
compute a fix indoors. This is especially
important to note if you are in a garage or
other overhanging structure. If you find you
are not getting strong enough satellite signals
while in a garage or other structure, move
to a location where there is a clear view of
the sky and you should immediately see an
improvement in signal strength.
The Magellan RoadMate receiver includes
Voice Alerts (Text-to-Speech) for driving
instructions.
This document is set up to be printed on 8.5” x 11” paper should you desire a printed version for
your reference.2

Notes on Entering Data
If you are having trouble getting the results
you expected, here are a few useful tips.
• Check for apostrophes and hyphens. If you
do not see the POI or street name you are
looking for in the list, check to see if the
name has an apostrophe or hyphen.
• The more characters you enter, the smaller
the list of possible options is from which to
choose.
• When entering a street or city name it is
not necessary to use accented letters. You
can enter city and streets names using only
standard characters.
QuickSpell
Another feature the Magellan RoadMate
receiver uses to make entering cities and
streets easier is a feature known as QuickSpell.
As letters are entered for a city or street the
Quickspell feature checks the database for
cities or streets that begin with the letters
entered. Any letters that could not be used to
spell a city or street name are greyed out. This
provides quick and error-free city and street
name entry.
Smart City Search
The Magellan RoadMate receiver utilizes a
feature known as “Smart City Search”. Smart
City Search attempts to predict the city you are
looking for. This prediction is based upon two
factors; your position and cities you’ve gone to
before.
Whenever entering or searching on an
address the first screen displayed is the Enter
City Name keyboard.
As letters are entered, Quickspell checks the
database for cities beginning with the letters
entered. Keys that don’t spell a city in the
database are greyed out and Smart City Search
displays a suggested city in the text field.7

If the city is correct, tap the button to
continue.
The button can be tapped to display
the list of cities that begin with the letters
entered.
Quickspell and Smart City Search makes
entering an address quick and easy with little
chance for errors.8
