Magellan Maestro 4040 Portable Bluetooth Automotive GPS System DISCONTINUED
NOTE: This item has been discontinued by Magellan. Check out the Magellan Maestro 4250 (click here) instead, with fresher maps and new voice-recognition technology!
Introducing the Magellan Maestro 4040 - a brand new line of car navigators designed to be easy on the eyes, easy on the wallet, and tough on the competition. The Seventh Generation of Magellan GPS technology, the Maestro 4000 series feature bright 4.3" diagonal color touch-screens and an improved user interface over previous models. The Maestro 4000 is the base model, providing turn-by-turn voice directions anywhere in the continental United States. The Maestro 4040 (this page) adds a more detailed map, including expanded coverage for Canada and Puerto Rico, as well as text-to-speech voice directions, Bluetooth phone compatibility and live traffic capability. The Maestro 4050 is the first portable GPS system to offer voice recognition technology, allowing you to speak simple commands to the unit. The 4050 has all the other features of the 4040 but also includes the traffic kit (see below for comparison chart).
Another new feature of the Magellan Maestro is AAA (American Automobile Association) TourBook Travel Information. Drivers gain access to North America's most trusted source for trip planning information through searchable AAA TourBook listings, including AAA Diamond Rated Restaurants and Accommodations, Show Your Card & Save Locations for member discounts, Approved Auto Repair Facilities, Attractions, Events, Campgrounds, Cities and AAA Branch Office locations. The Maestro 4000 series also provides AAA member roadside assistance details that show your exact location and provides the AAA member toll-free help number. Bluetooth-enabled Maestro devices will connect the driver's Bluetooth-enabled cell phone directly to AAA for immediate help when AAA members need it most.
