'Magellan' wants to make it easier to explore the great outdoors with its new 3D terrain maps for automotive and power sport vehicles. The off-road navigation maps will cover all of Canada and the US, meaning you will never again have to fear getting lost on the backroads.

The software package for off-road navigation will feature detailed tail maps with contour elevation lines and 3D terrain markers. There will also be markings for crowd-sourced trails, service roads, picturesque byways and third party trail guides. For more practical purposes, the 3D terrain maps will also indicate the location of lodging, gas, food and other necessities. There is even a social element to the Magellan software that will allow you to share pictures and discuss some of your favorite routes with other off-road and outdoor enthusiasts.
