IMPORTANT SAFETY WARNINGS
The Magellan RoadMate receiver is a vehicle-navigation aid designed to assist you in arriving at
your selected destinations. When using the Magellan RoadMate receiver, these safety rules must
be followed to prevent accidents that can result in injury or death to yourself or others:
Please check the applicable regulations in your state regarding windshield mounting. Certain
states prohibit the mounting of any items on your windshield. Go to www.magellanGPS.com for
alternative mounting solutions.
When driving, the need to view the display is minimal. Voice prompts will guide you to your
destination. The driver should enter data or program the Magellan RoadMate receiver only when
the vehicle is stationary. Only a vehicle passenger should enter data or program the Magellan
RoadMate receiver while the vehicle is moving. Do not become distracted by the receiver while
driving, and always be fully aware of all driving conditions.
It is your responsibility to comply with all traffic laws and to use the Magellan RoadMate and
mounting options in such a manner that the user is in compliance with applicable laws.
Roads, points of interest (POIs), business and service locations may change over time. As a result
the database may contain inaccuracy. Also, the database does not include, analyze, process,
consider, or reflect any of the following: legal restrictions (such as vehicle type, weight, height,
width, load and speed restrictions); road slope or gradient; bridge height, width, weight or other
limits; population density; neighborhood quality or safety; availability or proximity of police,
emergency rescue, medical or other assistance; construction work zones or hazards; road or
lane closures; road, traffic or traffic facilities’ safety or condition; weather conditions; pavement
characteristics or conditions; special events; traffic congestion. It is your responsibility to disregard
any unsafe, hazardous or illegal route suggestions.
Keep the Magellan RoadMate receiver safe from extreme temperature conditions. For example, do
not leave it exposed to direct sunlight for an extended period of time.
Take care when mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver in your vehicle, whether using the
windshield mount or other mounts, that it does not obstruct the driver’s view of the road, interfere
with the operation of the vehicle’s safety devices such as air bags, or present a hazard to occupants
of the vehicle should the receiver be dislodged while driving. It is your responsibility to assess the
risks associated with damage to your vehicle or vehicle occupants as the result of your choices in
mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver.
Temperature
The maximum operating temperature is 140°F (60°C).
Battery
The battery in the Magellan RoadMate receiver is rechargeable and should not be removed. In the
event that it should need to be replaced, please contact Magellan Technical Support.
Charging the Magellan RoadMate
An optional AC adapter is available as an accessory for your Magellan RoadMate . Use of
another type of AC adapter can result in malfunction and/or possible fire hazard due to battery
overheating.
Only use the car charger approved for/supplied with your Magellan RoadMate receiver. Use of
another type of car charger will result in fire or electric shock. 9400-series User Manual Page iii

1 Magellan Roadmate GPS Receiver
The Magellan
®
RoadMate
®
receiver is a
vehicle navigation product.
It uses GPS signals from satellites to
calculate your precise location and compute
navigational information.
The RoadMate uses its position and
movement to 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 and
searches.
• Store your home address so you can
quickly get routing details from wherever
you are 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.
• Save location information to create a map
later of the places you went.
• Customize your Magellan Roadmate
receiver to meet your needs using the
Settings menu.
The user interface for the Magellan Roadmate
receiver is intended to be easy and simple to
follow.
The Magellan Roadmate receiver has a built-
in battery. Note that a fully charged Magellan
Roadmate with 7” screen only has about 30
minutes of battery life. If you need or wish to
use external power, you can use an optional
AC power adapter.
While the Magellan Roadmate has a powerful
GPS chipset, you may not get strong enough
satellite signals to compute your location when
indoors or in a parking garage. 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 (both prerecorded and Text-to-
Speech) for driving instructions.
About this manual:
This manual is intended to provide at least
one way to use each of the most important
features of the Magellan RoadMate. Not all
features and methods of use are necessarily
described here.
Additional information is available at
Magellan’s website:

We hope this manual helps you enjoy your
Magellan RoadMate.

Keypad
The keypad is the most common method for

receiver. Understanding the keypad while
entering an address is an important part of
using your Magellan RoadMate receiver.
Keypad Overview

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. 9400-series User Manual Page 6
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.

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.
