  • 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)..

Best GPS I have ever used.

  • Summary: I personally cannot stand those little GPS units, nor can I stand a GPS anywhere up in my field of vision. I have 2 of these Magellan’s. They are easy to use and provide good directions for the most part although they sometimes do not actually calculate the best directions, because they always calculate back roads at about 25 mph.

  • 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.

A total waste of money and dash space.

  • 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.
