Magellan Maestro 4040

 

A large screen, fresh new user interface, AAA's TourBook functionality, and a great price make the Maestro 4040 a compelling in-car navigation device.

Large, 4.3 inch screen. New, improved user interface. AAA TourBook and roadside-assistance location. Powered by SiRFStar III receiver. Supports multisegment routing and is upgradable to live traffic and voice commands.

Bluetooth phone interface isn't as robust as on other GPS products. No auto-zoom or auto-volume ability.

A large screen, fresh new user interface, AAA's TourBook functionality, and a great price make the Maestro 4040 a compelling in-car navigation device.
