Magellan RoadMate 1700

CNET

  • Summary: The Magellan RoadMate 1700 isn't a GPS device for everyone, but with its huge screen and road-trip-friendly features, we think truckers and RV drivers will love it.
  • Cons: In urban environments, the 1700 takes longer to establish satellite lock and can be inaccurate. Its 7-inch screen size may be too much for smaller dashboards and can make mounting it awkward. Its battery life is extremely short.

  • Conclusion: The Magellan RoadMate 1700 is a top choice for anyone who buys their gadgets by the inch. You won't find this much screen real estate for this little cash with any other GPS on the market.
  • Pros: Big, bright 7-inch screen. Sharp map graphics. Easy POI searches. Useful AAA TourBook.
  • Cons: No real-time traffic reports. Doesn't display the current road speed limit. Display could be more informative. Might not fit on some dashboards or windshields.
