Magellan RoadMate iPhone application a huge success

PND4ME 0 Points
edited November -1 in Smartphone Navigation
Magellan just introduced the new Magellan RoadMate iPhone application a few days ago and it is already in the TOP 6 Grossing app's of all time.
Navigon being available much longer is current in #2 position, they were in the top grossing position for some time.
TomTom who also have been out for sometime is in the #5 position.
What was surprising is Magellan only introduce this app less than a week ago and they are already in the #6 position and rated with a 4 out of 5 start rating from users that purchased the app at the introductory price of $79.99.

Looks to be another success for Magellan and hope they keep them coming.

    I'd like to know as well. I don't care if they are or are not and we'll give you a nice Magellan logo as an avatar beside your username if you are. I don't mind (and even encourage) company participation so long as we know the affiliation.
  • Yep, I'd like to see some company reps here. Of course, I would prefer they contribute more than just touting the latest products. :)
  • I will also like to know if he and PND4ME are buddies ;)
    or all pads

    I have no idea who in Magellan is calling themselves Maggie.nav but I understand that Magellan will have employees monitor the different forums since I have been sharing some of the concerns with them.
    They are willing to address each issue and appreciate the forum contributions.
    My feedbacks goes to many departments from testing, to marketing, product marketing, engineering to the executive staff COO and CEO etc, and it seems to have helped focus their effort on certain show stopper issues that Magellan is aware off.
    I don't work for Magellan nor am I paid by Magellan in any manner so I'm on my own here but I carry a little weight with the company due to the long term relationship we have with Magellan.
    Thanks for asking but I think Maggie.nav can be anyone of the Magellan employees.
    I think the problem is if Magellan employee is identified, some newbie on this forum will probably B!$#h and complaint instead of being productive and piss someone off. These are low price PND's and we are lucky they even care that it get better or not.
    I had the SVP of marketing get on this forum a few years ago and he took responsibility but did not have the resources to check this forum on a regular basis.

    I been recommending this to Magellan since they launch that that the price of the app should be $59.99-$69.99 and they launched it at $79.99 and was going to go up to $99.99.
    Hate to say it, today everyone wants free so to recover developement cost, they better lower their price before everyone buys a Navigon or TomTom iPhone app.

    I guess they finally got the message and it's a good move in their part! Hopefully there are tons of iTune gift cards given this year and they will use it to buy Nav apps instead of songs! lol

    Welcome to the forum Maggie. It is nice having a representative from Magellan participating here.
  • Lets hope this honeymoon last a long time and everyone to understand and support Maggienav as a friend of ours. :lol:

    Welcom Maggie.nav, are you working out of Santa Clara or San Dimas, my understanding is there will be two of you.

  • I don't know about you guys but i love when the masks fall this way (kidding) ;-)

    Seriously, it's nice to have someone from Magellan in this forum. Hopefully your participation won't just be to advertise your products.
  • Welcome maggie.nav! Nice to to see some visible interest!

    PND4ME, I don't think you need to worry about much bad behavior from noobies and disgruntled owners. A little constructive criticism is good for the soul. I'm sure the moderators will keep that in check. :)
