Convenient guidance
Enter your destination and follow along on the display in 2-D or 3-D map mode as the voice prompts alert you to upcoming maneuvers. The Maestro 3140 uses text-to-speech technology to speak actual street names at turns — you'll hear "turn left at Valley Road" instead of "take next left" so you can pay attention to the road instead of the screen. Magellan's optional traffic-information receiver lets you receive real-time updates on congestion along your route.

Talk hands-free with Bluetooth
Built-in Bluetooth technology lets you dial and receive calls safely, and use your phone's address book while leaving your phone in your bag or pocket. The included AAA® features give you instant access to service details and recommended destinations from the leading travel resource. Just tap the screen for a quick connection to AAA Roadside Assistance or to dial ahead to select points of interest.
