Magellan confirmed those leaked Maestro GPS systems today, giving them better prices than we had initially reported. The top of the line Maestro 4050 will be the company's first GPS to support voice commands and sell for $699 when it drops in May. The 4040, which loses the 4050's voice command and real-time traffic features, but keeps Bluetooth and text-to-speech will go for $499, whereas the entry-level 4000 will debut in April (along with the 4040) for $399. Personally, I'd wait till TomTom makes their SMS-capable unit official before committing to any of these systems.
