Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, today introduced the all-new Yamaha Adventure Pro powered by Magellan, an advanced off-road and mobile GPS tablet device providing off-road enthusiasts the confidence and capability to explore more, and share off-road adventures with friends and family.
The all-new Adventure Pro is a Yamaha Genuine Accessory priced at $749, which includes a RAM mount, vehicle cradle, AC adaptor, vehicle power adaptor, and Yamaha-exclusive software to further any adventure. The all-new 2019 Wolverine X2 and 2019 Wolverine X4, as well as the new 2019 YXZ1000R / SS side-by-side models are pre-wired for Adventure Pro installation, and provides advanced on-screen data tracking and vehicle feedback.
The unit also easily transitions from a side-by-side to automobiles and syncs with a desktop computer for those who prefer to pre-plan their off-road adventures at home.
The Yamaha Adventure Pro interface is powered by a mobile Android-based Magellan TRX7 tablet, which allows adding apps, music, videos, and more. To further peace-of-mind throughout your excursions, the Adventure Pro also features a rugged and durable case, which additionally provides waterproof and weather-resistant protection.
“Featuring navigation, GPS mapping, online adventure planning, and social integration to share experiences with friends, family and the world, the all-new Yamaha Adventure Pro is the most comprehensive and user-friendly GPS unit available,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s vice president of ATV / SxS group operations. “Yamaha is partnering with Magellan, the industry leader for innovative GPS devices and off-road navigation, to bring its extensive network and durable technology to truly adventurous off-road enthusiasts.”
Preloaded with more than 115,000 designated OHV trails, with more continuously being added and shared, offroaders can track their adventures and plan ahead with Magellan’s extensive online network of off-road maps.
Through Magellan’s advanced GPS tracking, maps can be saved for offline use and users can continue to navigate, backtrack, and receive off-road trail warnings and other guidance features — all without cell signal.
Yamaha Adventure Pro’s online social integration connects the off-road community better than ever before at www.YamahaAdventurePro.com, with the ability to share trail maps, locations, lap times, trail ratings, photos and updates with friends or the public through popular social channels like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. And through Magellan’s TRX services, there are several ways to connect and share from the Yamaha pre-wired display to the TRX smartphone app for a rich, truly integrated experience.
Select 2019 Yamaha SxS vehicles are prewired for advanced integration with the Yamaha Adventure Pro unit to provide advanced data tracking and vehicle feedback including speed, RPM, trail timing, coolant temperatures and more. Vehicle safety warnings are also built into the interface, with seatbelt alerts, overheating, and engine check warnings for confidence-inspired adventures.
While the Yamaha Adventure Pro tablet has been optimized for pre-wired vehicle integration, it is not limited to just one vehicle. Navigation, social networking, and other top features are available to a number of uses, from side-by-side vehicles to on- and off-road automobiles. And when not in use on the trail or on the road, the device can also double as an Android-based tablet for apps, music, videos, and more.
The Yamaha Adventure Pro powered by Magellan is available from Yamaha authorized dealers, and online as a Yamaha Genuine accessory at www.ShopYamaha.com. The complete off-road GPS package includes the seven-inch display tablet, vehicle power adapter, USB cable, 4-pin CAN-cradle, vehicle/cradle harness, RAM mount and quick start guide.
