Conclusion: The user interface on the RoadMate 500 was rather simplistic which is good if all you're concerned about is just getting from point A to B. If you're a little technical, you may be disappointed in the lack of some features like not being able to see individual satellite strengths and satellite position. Also, if you want to view maps and plot routes on your PC you'll have to look at another model.
Pros: Display can be difficult to see in some sunlight conditions., No satellite info page, No ability to view maps or create routes on the PC
Cons: Useful tutorials, Generally easy to operate, Many ways to customize the functions
