Magellan RoadMate Receiver
The Magellan® RoadMate® receiver is a vehicle navigation product that utilizes GPS signals from satellites to
calculate your precise location and compute navigational information that can be used to guide you to your
destination. Knowing its position and movement, it can then overlay this information on detailed maps to provide
a visual representation of your location.
With the Magellan RoadMate receiver you can:
•
Save searches and addresses under the OneTouch™ menu for fast, convenient access to favorite
destinations.
•
Store your home address and quickly get routing details to your home.
•
Enter and save addresses in your address book that can be accessed at any time and get routing
information to that address.
•
Route to an address that you enter using the QuickSpell™ and Smart City search for easy, errorless
address entry.
•
Route to any point of interest (POI) that has been preloaded into your Magellan RoadMate receiver.
•
Create a route with multiple destinations. Handy for business people who need routing information to many
destinations.
•
Access Good Neighbor Sam RV Parks and Services information.
•
View POIs that are near exits ahead of you on the highway. The Highway Exit POIs function provides you
with a list of gas stations, restaurants, hotels and auto repair shops located nearby exits you are
approaching while travelling on the interstate.
•
Customize your Magellan RoadMate receiver to meet your needs using the Settings menu.
The user interface for the Magellan RoadMate receiver is easy and simple to follow once you understand the
basics. You may never need to refer to this manual, but if you do, we have tried to present it in a form that makes
it easy for you to access the function you are trying to use and follow the steps provided.
The Magellan RoadMate receiver has a built-in battery so, in most cases, you will be able to follow these
instructions while reading them on your computer screen without plugging the Magellan RoadMate receiver to
the AC power using an optional AC power adapter. You should note that while indoors you may not get strong
enough satellite signals to compute your location, so your location information may not be updated. However, the
power of the GPS chipset installed in the Magellan RoadMate receiver will pick up satellite signals in some very
demanding locations. You may find that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is computing a position, even indoors.
Even with the improved GPS chipset, the receiver may not be able to always compute a fix indoors. This is
especially important to note if you are in a garage or other overhanging structure. If you find you are not getting
strong enough satellite signals while in a garage or other structure, move to a location where there is a clear view
of the sky and you should immediately see an improvement in signal strength.
The Magellan RoadMate receiver includes Voice Alerts (Text-to-Speech) for driving instructions.

Notes on Entering Data
If you are having trouble getting the results you expected, here are a few useful tips.
•
Check for apostrophes and hyphens. If you do not see the POI or street name you are looking for in the
list, check to see if the name has an apostrophe or hyphen.
•
The more characters you enter, the smaller the list of possible options is from which to choose.
•
When entering a street or city name it is not necessary to use accented letters. You can enter city and
streets names using only standard characters.
Smart City Search
The Magellan RoadMate receiver utilizes a feature known as “Smart City Search”. Smart City Search attempts
to predict the city you are looking for. This prediction is based upon two factors; your position and cities you’ve
gone to before.
In this example I am in Los Angeles and enter “PA”. The receiver
looks for cities I’ve already gone to as well as cities near my
location that begin with “PA” and, in this case comes up with
“PASADENA, CA”.
In this example “PA” has been entered again but this time the
receiver is in Atlanta, GA. The city displayed now is Palmetto,
GA, so location has changed the predicted city to one closer to
your location.
QuickSpell
Another feature the Magellan RoadMate receiver uses to make
entering cities and streets easier is a feature known as
QuickSpell. In the example to the right, “CE” has been entered
for a street name in Chicago, IL. The Magellan RoadMate
receiver has predicted that the street name may be Cedar Ave.
Also, it has greyed out any letters that could not be used to spell
a street name in the database. This provides quick and errorfree city and street name entry.
Installation Instructions
Installation of the Magellan RoadMate receiver is simple and easy. The hardest part will be picking the best
location.
Selecting the Location
A few tips on selecting the proper location.
•
Mount the Magellan RoadMate receiver in a place where it can be easily seen and will not interfere with
your view of the road.
•
The Magellan RoadMate receiver should be mounted in such a way that the antenna, (located in the top of
the receiver), has an unobstructed view of the sky through the windshield.
•
Make sure that the Magellan RoadMate receiver or any cabling will not be disturbed if the airbags are
activated.
•
Be sure to check your local and regional laws before mounting to the windshield. Some states have laws
restricting the mounting of any device on the windshield.
Securing the Car Cradle
Clean the area on the windshield that has been selected
for mounting the Magellan RoadMate receiver. Let the area
dry completely.
Make sure that the lever at the base of the adjustable
mount is in the up position. Place the base of the car cradle
firmly over the area where it will be placed. Push the lever
at the base of the swivel mount all the way down until it
snaps in place. Carefully let go of the assembly, making
sure that it is securely mounted.
(The Car Cradle shown here may be different from the Car
Cradle supplied with your Magellan RoadMate receiver, but
the installation is the same for all cradle styles.)
Attaching the Magellan RoadMate receiver to
the Car Cradle
Slide the Magellan RoadMate receiver on the car cradle so
that the slot on the Magellan RoadMate receiver aligns with
the tab on the car cradle. Slide the Magellan RoadMate
receiver all the way down until it rests on the 'feet'. You
should notice a click when the receiver is fully mounted in the
cradle.
Adjusting the Mount for Optimum Viewing
Loosen the adjustment locking knob and position the
Magellan RoadMate receiver for optimum viewing. Once set,
tighten the locking knobs. (Never attempt to adjust the mount while driving.)
Connecting Power
Plug the end of the vehicle power adapter into a 12VDC vehicle power receptacle. Connect the other end of the
cable to the Magellan RoadMate receiver's power connector as shown.
Note: Some vehicles apply power to the vehicle power receptacle only when the ignition is on.
Checking Connection and Final Adjustments
If the power indicator light on the vehicle power adaptor is on, power is being supplied to the Magellan RoadMate
receiver. If it is not on, check the cable connection to the vehicle power receptacle. If the light is still not on, turn
the vehicle's ignition on.
Power Switch
Slide the power switch to the left turn the receiver on. Slide the power switch to the center position to turn the
receiver off. (Slide the power switch to the right to reset. [Power Reset] can sometimes solve any problems
encountered while using the receiver.)
Security
It is recommended that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is not left in plain view while unattended for reasons of
theft.
Please note that the Magellan RoadMate receiver is a receiver only and does not transmit GPS location signals.
Neither the receiver nor the vehicle can be tracked using the Magellan RoadMate receiver.

routing there. Once that destination has been completed, the receiver will begin routing to the next
destination in the list.
• Add To Trip --- places the destination at the end of the trip. When the final destination of the current
trip has been arrived at, the receiver will begin routing to the destination you are inputting now.
The Save button saves the destination, not the trip.
