Magellan Premium iPhone Car Kit up for pre-order

updated 03:05 pm EST, Tue December 22, 2009

Magellan Premium Car Kit to ship January 7th

Navigation device and related peripherals maker Magellan has begun offering its Premium Car Kit for the iPhone and iPod touch for pre-order, also announcing a ship date of January 7th for the device. The kit includes a windshield mount with a built-in GPS sensor of its own so that devices such as the original 2G iPhones and iPod Touch devices can also benefit from the navigation function. In 3G and 3GS models of the iPhone, the external GPS chip is said to improve the reception of the Apple devices.

There is also a car charger and a dedicated button to answer and end calls that come in over the Bluetooth connection on the iPhone. The mount is adjustable so that the Apple devices do not need to be removed from their cases, custom or otherwise.

The navigation app, Magellan RoadMate 2010 North America, that is also available as a standalone for $60 through the App Store is part of the bundle as well. The Magellan Premium Car Kit costs $130.

    Last paragraph is incorrect...

    Per article above:

    "The navigation app, Magellan RoadMate 2010 North America, that is also available as a standalone for $60 through the App Store is part of the bundle as well. The Magellan Premium Car Kit costs $130. "

    This sentence leads to believe that the price of $129.00 for the Magellan Premium Car Kit includes the Magellan RoadMate 2010 North America app, but it is only available separately. There is no so "bundle".

    Per Magllen website:

    "Requires purchase of the Magellan RoadMate 2010 App for iPhone. Sold separately."
