Best GPS I have ever used.

Michael Krieger, Amazon
16 March 2014
  • 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...

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.

Great but not the latest maps

Raw Beginner, Amazon
13 November 2013
  • Summary: HUGE screen! Bought it for my dad, who likes anything with a bigger screen. This is definitely not uploaded with the latest software, so beware. A street has been built over 5 years ago doesn't show up on here. I will have to invest in a SD card reader to be able to upload the latest maps.

Slow After Updating Map

J L, Amazon
16 July 2013
  • Summary: GPS works fine and works great hooked up to my back up camera. Typing street address became really slow after updating the software and map. It would take about 10 to 15 seconds for each key press. I did some research and followed the instructions below and solved the sluggish performance issue.

Great Product!! Nice features. Great Value.

natosson, Ebay
3 May 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this GPS, because I needed a good size, monitor to use with a rearview backup camera, which I also bought on Ebay, for around $20.00. I was afraid the 7 inch screen would be too big, but that was not the case. A 3.5 or a 4.5 inch screen would have been too small.

Chillin' with Magellan 1700-LM

Hector Gonzalez, Amazon
4 April 2012
  • Summary: Received the 1700-LM a day later than the estimated delivery date. Delay was due to UPS sending to wrong facility. I unpackaged the 1700-LM and read the manual. The manual states a fully charged battery would last about 30 minutes and that the battery in the unit does not charge via the USB...

Great Product

PE, Amazon
22 January 2012
  • Summary: I am really enjoying this Magellan GPS. It is a large screen. I like that it tells you that your destination is on the right or left, which our last GPS did not. I would purchase it again. If there was one thing I wish was better it would be more POI's.
