Magellan is showcasing its new eXplorist TRX7 off-road vehicle navigation solution for the 4×4 and Powersports vehicle consumer market at CES 2016, a consumer electronics and technology trade show held Jan. 6–9 in Las Vegas. The OHV navigation solution delivers detailed 3D maps, more than 44,000 vehicle trails and community generated trails, improved driver safety and a superior user experience, the company said in a news release.

The TRX7 will be displayed in the Magellan booth at CES, located in South Hall MP25441.

“Magellan’s new eXplorist TRX7 is the only complete off-road navigator for adventuring,” said Stig Pedersen, associate vice president of product management for Magellan. “Pre-loaded trail maps and crowd-sourced trails provide a constantly updating platform, allowing users to plan adventures, navigate, and add pictures and comments to trails. Finally off-roaders have an all-in-one solution that will safely guide them through some of the most fun and exciting trails in the U.S. and Canada.”

The device

Built to withstand the harsh demands of off-roading, the Magellan eXplorist TRX7 features:

  • Weatherproof 7-inch LCD touchscreen display.
  • Water- and dust-proof IP67 ruggedized casing.
  • Powerful Dual Core Cortex-A9 processor running Android 4.2 OS.
  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity.
  • 1G Mobile DDR2 memory.
  • 16GB onboard memory and a 64GB MicroSD card expansion slot.
  • Three different mounting options: Windshield Suction Cup Mount, Genuine Ram Handlebar Rail Mount or Genuine Ram Windshield Suction Cup Mount.

The maps

The Magellan off-road vehicle platform’s trail maps are cloud-based, dynamic, and will continue to grow and be improved by both Magellan and through crowd-sourced additions from the Magellan OHV user community, the company said. The off-road maps feature high-resolution 3D and 2D terrain and contour elevation lines; food, gas, lodging and general service POIs; third party trail guides; and more.

The Magellan TRX7 allows users plan, track and save trail rides. Its OHV web portal lets users add pictures and comments to their trail rides and share them with friends, family, and off-road and outdoor communities. Members of Magellan’s off-road vehicle online community earn achievement badges for posting and sharing “dirt miles” traveled and total number of trails posted.

The portal also is integrated to social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, users are able to post their greatest trail adventures.
