Magellan has announced a further range of car navigation devices following its line it released in 2007.

The first two models from this series are the Maestro 3100 and Maestro 3140. These devices offer features including AAA TourBook Travel Information, Rapid Routing, Bluetooth and Text-to-Speech.

There's no real advancement in this series, if anything the Maestro 3000 series may appear inferior to the 4000 series but only in terms of screen size. Maestro 3000 series will have the same slim body as the 4000 series but will come with a 3.5-inch screen. It will make the product lighter and smaller, if you like that sort of thing.

The Maestro 3140 delivers advanced navigation capabilities, including AAA TourBook travel information in North America, while the Maestro 3100 delivers the navigation experience in a price category that affords more drivers the opportunity to travel with navigation systems provide.

The devices use Samsung's 2443 processor for rapid routing.

We will keep you updated of UK prices and availabilty.

The two new models are launching in America this month and next starting at $299.99 for the Maestro 3100.
