Available in April, the Magellan TrafficKit for North America will be available for preview demonstrations at the 2006 International CES show. Magellan needs this. Competition is delivering live traffic features in their lines. I've said it once, and I'll say it again, this is where automotive GPS units are going and if you aren't there you aren't anywhere.

Turn your Magellan Roadmate 800 into a DivX Movie Player

Over at GPS Passion there is a post that tells you how to get into your Magellan Roadmate 800 to modify it so that you can play movies on it. The Magellan RoadMate 800 is apparently running a full version of Windows CE4.2 and there is a keystroke sequence to get into the hidden menu. Once there, you can upload programs to alter the functionality. It may work, or it may blow your $800 for your RM800. I can't vouch for the accuracy and if you do this you're on your own.
