Summary: It rarely makes mistakes, and it adjusts well to changes. I will never be without one again. Sometime it is a little slow responding after a quick turn, probably due to satellite connection at the time. Other than that, it usually gives warnings with adequate time to prepare for a turn.
A map in the lap would be faster and more accurate than this POS.

Summary: This GPS is the slowest update I have ever experienced and I go back to the GPS units that read in degrees, minutes and seconds! The batteries are good for a total of maybe 10 minutes when fully charged. Not a problem as it can stay plugged in, but here is the trouble. The unit is so slow that I am well past my turn before the system can update and advise me where to turn, (think U-turn after U-turn)..
Summary: I love it. This is my first 7' GPS . It run pretty fast. I don't have a problem of it. It so clear and big. Can't believe until you get one of those. It also let me put addition location as one. So I don't have to type it in every each location.
Initially time consuming to set up, but once done performs well.

Summary: Once it is warmed up it performs well. Before then, once plugged in & trying to establish a route it's very time consuming. Clicking check mark & menu is no problem. When entering city & street, it's click 1 letter wait & wait & wait, then click next letter & wait all over again. Once entry has been made & option selected then GPS performs well. This is my 2nd Magellan RoadMate 1700 & the 1st with this issue.
Summary: PROS: Great screen, easy functions... adjustable routes and sounds. Priced VERY competitively! It will get you where you are going eventually. CONS: If it is more than 2 blocks, you can find a better route than this POS! I have yet to use it and not known a better route once I got to my destination. I used it going to Buffalo from VA, then took my regular route coming back.
Summary: Since I bought this GPS I had issues, I tried to use for my 3rd time to my trip, but when I turn on the screen turned black, so it has been sold broken, I tried to contact buyer to request other that he's selling on his auctions, but he not answer yet.
