Magellan announced the release of the RoadMate 760GPS Portable Auto Navigator. The new RoadMate 760 is based on the successful RoadMate 700, but adds some convenient features like the text to speech option that announces upcoming street names.
The new model also offers the SmartDetour feature that is designed to help get users around traffic jams. Traveling to multiple destinations?
