Magellan RoadMate Receiver
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.
• Access the AAA TourBook
®
providing ratings and descriptions on AAA-approved places to stay, play, dine,
and save.
• Access AAA Member Roadside Assistance

information from the OneTouch menu.
• 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. Note that a fully charged Magellan RoadMate only has about
30 minutes of battery life. 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.

Installation Instructions
Installation of the Magellan RoadMate receiver is simple and easy. The hardest part will be picking the best
location.
Selecting the Location
A few tips on selecting the proper location.
• Mount the Magellan RoadMate receiver in a place where it can be easily seen and will not interfere with
your view of the road.
• The Magellan RoadMate receiver should be mounted in such a way that the antenna, (located in the top of
the receiver), has an unobstructed view of the sky through the windshield.
• Make sure that the Magellan RoadMate receiver or any cabling will not be disturbed if the airbags are
activated.
• Be sure to check your local and regional laws before mounting to the windshield. Some states have laws
restricting the mounting of any device on the windshield.
Securing the Car Cradle
Clean the area on the windshield that has been selected for mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver. Let the
area dry completely.
Skip this step if you want to be able to remove the receiver for security reasons. However if you plan on
permanently attaching the receiver in the mount, use the two small 5.5mm x 10mm screws to secure the cradle
to the receiver.
Use the four 7mm x 12mm screws to attach the pivot plate to the cradle.
(The DB-9 connector is not used unless you have an optional fleet management device.)
Attaching the Magellan RoadMate receiver to the Mount
The ball end of the mount snaps into the pivot plate that was just
attached. Use the tightening ring to secure the receiver assembly
to the mount but do not tighten firmly yet. After the entire
assembly is attached to the windshield you will want to adjust the
position of the receiver for optimum viewing.After the mount and
the receiver are assembled, place the suction cup of the mount
firmly against the area it is to be attached to and push the
mounting lever towards the base of the mount.When the
assembly is attached to the windshield, you can use the pivot
point on the arm of the mount or the pivot ring on the back of the
cradle to adjust the receiver for optimum viewing.4
Connecting Power
Attach the USB end of the power adapter cable and the other end to a vehicle 12vdc receptacle.
Note: Some vehicles apply power to the vehicle power receptacle only when the ignition is on.
Checking Connection and Final Adjustments
If the power indicator light on the vehicle power adaptor is on, power is being supplied to the Magellan RoadMate
receiver. If it is not on, check the cable connection to the vehicle power receptacle. If the light is still not on, turn
the vehicle`s ignition on.
Power Switch
Press and hold the power button 2 – 3 seconds to turn the receiver on or off. Press and hold the power button for
more then 5 seconds to reset the receiver should you have a problem with the receiver and are instructed to
reset the receiver.
Security
It is recommended that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is not left in plain view while unattended for reasons of
theft.
Please note that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is a receiver only and does not transmit GPS location signals.
Neither the receiver nor the vehicle can be tracked using the Magellan RoadMate receiver.5

Selecting QWERTY or ABC Keyboard
1. Access the Main Menu.
2. Tap the Settings icon .
3. Tap Keyboard.
4. Select QWERTY or ABC.
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.
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.
In this example I am in Los Angeles and enter “PA”. The receiver
looks for cities I’ve already gone to as well as cities near my
location that begin with “PA” and, in this case comes up with
“PASADENA, CA”.
In this example “PA” has been entered again but this time the
receiver is in Atlanta, GA. The city displayed now is Palmetto,
GA, so location has changed the predicted city to one closer to
your location.
List (Enter City only) While entering a city, press the List button to
bring up a list of cities beginning with the characters you have
entered.
Accept (Entering City) Accepts the suggested city that is displayed in
the data field. (Entering street) Brings up a list of streets
beginning with the characters entered.9
QuickSpell
Another feature the Magellan RoadMate receiver uses to make
entering cities and streets easier is a feature known as
QuickSpell. In the example to the right, “CE” has been entered
for a street name in Chicago, IL. The Magellan RoadMate
receiver has predicted that the street name may be Cedar Ave.
Also, it has greyed out any letters that could not be used to spell
a street name in the database. This provides quick and error-
free city and street name entry.10
