    Blades13,

    If you have a iPod touch, you will need either the Magellan Car Kit or TomTom
    s Car Kit for navigation to work.

    As for in-app purchases...dont worry about that as the core features will always be free. everything else is pretty much supplemental.

    Thanks, I have the Magellan Car Kit and app and love it. Just worried I would have to spend more money.

    Any clue when 2.0 is going to be released? That would make the app that much better for me and would make it complete.

    Maggie, TomTom's release of their latest version add's new features & upgrades. Any thoughts on when Magellan will release the next version. Many of us have been waiting to buy one or the other to use on the Magellan car kit for iPhone. This board has been very quiet -- has Magellan changed its strategy on updates? Thanks

    Maggie,

    I got a couple of quick questions. Can i display how many miles are remaining on my route through the app? If so how? Also, can you do route planning, where you plan the route and the app will help you follow it?

    Thanks

    Hi Jason,

    Yes, you can display how many miles are remaining on your route. When you are on the map screen, just touch the button where it says "Time." It is located directly opposite of the "OneTouch" button. The button directly opposite from the "OneTouch" button is able to display Time, Speed, Direction, Distance, Time Left (On your route), Arrival Time (ETA), and Elevation. For your second question involving route planning, are you referring to multiple destinations within one route?

    I would say get motion x gps drive, its more bang for your buck. Plus, the subscription services are pretty reasonable.

    Maggie,

    Thank you for your response. When I am talking about route planning, i mean that I would like to go a specific route somewhere. I do not want to follow the suggested way the app is telling me. Can I plug in the route I would i would like to take and the app will guide me there. I hope this is clear. Thank you.

    Hi Jason,

    I am sorry but there isn't a specific route planning feature. However, you may choose several different routes according to the user's settings.

    Hi Everyone,

    We have tested the Premium Cat Kit with the new iPhone 4 and it is compatible. The change in the iPhone hardware affects the way the iPhone is seated in the Magellan Premium Car Kit and consequently the iPhone needs to sit tighter in the Premium Car Kit (See Picture 1 below). If the audio is not working or stops after a short period of time, the user should press the phone in for a tighter fit (See Picture 2 below). This will also resolve the issue where a message may pop up stating it is not a compatible device.

    Since iPhone 4 is thinner than previous iPhones, users will also want to increase the throw of the adjustment block. The Magellan Premium Car Kit ships with a throw of up to 3mm of the adjustment block and the design incorporated the ability to double the throw to 6mm. To do this, the user simply needs to pull out the adjustment block and rotate it 180 (See Pictures 3, 4 and 5 below).

    Any news on an iOS4 update? Magellan started out strong, but seems to have fallen behind all of their competition.

    So it is now nearly November....iOS4 has been out since June.....and all Magellan has done is dropped the price on their not up to date App from what I originally paid. Good work.
