Cloud computing might change the way you use GPS. It combines masses of information, frees up resources, and use only those that you need. Magellan aims to do just that with its SmartGPS Eco V2.0. It keeps GPS users and motorists informed with relevant location and social content, and provides clearer and safer navigation. Some of the new features include a wide portfolio of leading content providers, easy drag and drop content manager for users, and updated Smartphone, iOS and Android apps.
The Magellan SmartGPS Eco V2.0 is built on a robust architecture supporting aggregation of content that provides highly relevant content that you can personalize. It stores massive amount of inputs provided by various sources including road users providing real time traffic information. In addition to planning trips and saving favorite locations, the SmartGPS Eco content manager enables users to select the content they want to receive. This information is delivered seamlessly and automatically, and includes up to date content from providers such as restaurants and Yelp and Foursquare, cinema locations and iHeartRadio Internet radio. In addition, traffic information like road works and delays, 5 day weather forecast, severe weather alerts & map overlays plus where to find the lowest gas prices, and much more are available.
