AppAdvice has teamed up with Magellan to offer you directionally challenged iPhone owners a chance to win one of three promo codes for Magellan RoadMate USA ($34.99). If you haven't noticed by now, a lot has changed since the last time we held a giveaway for any of Magellan's navigation apps for iPhone. The company's entire suite of apps have been updated to version 2.0, bringing with them a variety of additions and notable changes. Most importantly, all three apps feature a brand new user interface, providing you with quick access to both new and old features, simple multitouch map navigation, and even more map viewing room thanks to the new collapsible dashboard. The collapsible dashboard provides you with quick access to the main menu, where you can enter an address, lookup history, change settings, add contacts, and search for POIs. It also displays your current speed, distance remaining, elevation, heading, travel time remaining, and estimated time of arrival. Every one of these items can be toggled through by simply tapping on one of the three icons in the dashboard. All three RoadMate apps also now include full Yelp and Google integration. Through the POI search option, you can choose to utilize either service to discover local restaurants, entertainment, shopping, and much more. Once you have found what you are looking for, you can simply have RoadMate take you there, or you can read all about your chosen destination via results provided by Google or jump into the Yelp app to learn a little more. These new features go great with all of RoadMate's previous ones, including turn-by-turn directions, lane assistance, real-time traffic alerts, full multitasking support, and last but not least, lifetime map updates. To have a chance at winning a copy of Magellan RoadMate USA, simply hit that blue tweet button near the bottom of this page or retweet this post from your favorite Twitter app before 11:59 PM PDT tonight (June 13th). We will then search the Twitterverse for all of the retweets and randomly choose our lucky winner. The winner will be notified via Twitter, so please be sure to follow us so we can send you your promo code via a direct message. Non-Twitter users and those of you who want to increase your odds of winning can simply leave a comment below before 11:59 PM PDT tonight telling us which of the version 2.0 changes/additions you are most excited to try to have a chance at winning one of the other two promo codes. Feel free to participate in the giveaway via either or both methods. Only one entry per person per method is allowed, totaling up to two entries per person if using both.
