    to Maggie :
    i am suppose to get my car cardle next week and am excited , but at the same you kindda put me down now that i heard that i won't be able to hear the calls through the car speakers , cause i have right now an fm transmitter that routes the calls as well as Music and any sound coming from the Iphone to the speakers . i dont know if i understood well or not but are u saying that i wont be able to hear the calls through my car speakers ! please make that clear for me and let me know if there is something that i can buy extra to get that option , thanks...
    Caddouch,
    I have been playing around with my car kit some, and have found that as long as you are connected to car kit through bluetooth and you are using an aux cable from the cradle, your phone calls will play through your car speakers. It is at a lower volume than what the music plays, so you may have to turn up the volume for calls, but it works.

    YEAHHH !!, i got my Magellan car kit today , and i used it for just a little bit cause i was busy today , but First impression : IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL !

    1- GPS signal : i have an iphone 3GS and i still have few issues getting a signal lock when i start my magellan app , but NOW with the Car kit , i get signal in a matter of 2 seconds and i Mean it ! 2 seconds lock signal with no one single Drop ! on that part , i am extremely satisfied
    2- Volume : i never thought that a little speaker can do such an Amazing job . that speaker is so loud u won't even believe it .either on calls or navigation or music , NO Complaints whatsoever !
    3- the Design of the kit is super slick , it rotates so easily !
    4- i am using the hardest shell case that u can ever imagine to keep my phone safe from damage and i dont even bother with it using my Magellan kit , all i do is PLUG my iphone in the case and Play !

    all in all i give this FULL NAVIGATION SYSTEM A+ . GREAT JOB MAGELLAN !

    Caddouch,

    Here is a rundown: Update 1.2 should be out very soon. Its going to address and fix some issues users are having with our app. Ie. correcting speed.

    Update 2.0 is not too far behind. I spoke with a coworker and confirmed it is ahead of schedule. Please stay patient, it will be worth the wait.

    2.0 will have live traffic and many new innovating features that some of the other GPS applications wont have.

    Finally, I would like to thank you for your awesome review on iTunes. I greatly appreciate it.

    Hey Maggie,

    When I bought my Roadmate app for iPhone I was told I would get a discount code to purchase the car kit for a discount. It never came. I wrote customer service several times and they never responded. I think the time has expired on it by now. I kind of feel ripped off. Can you please tell me what happened and why customer service never responded? I wrote them weeks ago.

    And - if there is still a way for me to get the discount I desere any help would be appreciated.

    Thank You

    - Billy

    Used to be a big fan of Inav for use on pocket pc. been trying to figure out how to map things with magellan. Anyone know how to do that? What I mean is, I want to put in an address, that is not my current location, and then map that address. Then put in another address and get directions to that second address, with route list and all. Is that possible with magellan? Kinda like using magellan as you would mapquest online.

    Yes, I understand what you mean. Currently, there is no feature like that in our app but I will be sure to mention it to the Product manager and we can see what we can do to implement that into our future update.

    Sorry....no. All I can say is to expect to see all the good features that comes with a big update such as live traffic, gas weather and look out for a few more surprises.
