Excerpt: With an astounding 2 million points of interest and 4 route selections built in, the Magellan RoadMate 700 gets you where you need to be, faster and easier than competing GPS Navigators. Every popular feature is here, from a highly responsive LCD, WASS-compatible reliability, a 10 GB hard drive loaded with a detailed U.S. and Canadian Map, Turn-by-Turn Navigation, and more.
Excerpt: The Magellan RoadMate 700 is a mid-level model in Magellan’s RoadMate line of auto navigation systems. With touch-screen controls and built-in maps of the U.S. and Canada, this unit is ready to go, right out of the box.
Excerpt: One of the more popular options in today’s higher-priced vehicles is the onboard navigation system. These clever devices use satellite global positioning technology to pinpoint your location and calculate step-by-step directions to any address in North America. They also locate useful points of interest from their comprehensive databases that are stored in memory.
Conclusion: Accurate to an astonishing degree, the WAAS/EGNOS driven device will literally see you from door to door, but then this is GPS and that's the standard you expect. Connection to satellite is stable and this all-in-one unit provides a far better signal than my previous foray into the world of in-car GPS via a PDA-based TomTom Bluetooth unit.
Pros: All in one unit, without the connection problems of a PDA assisted device, Excellent pre-loaded map content, Suitable for a wide range of users and easliy transferable between vehicles
Cons: It is an expensive piece of kit. If you already have, or wish to buy a PDA, cheaper alternatives out there may sway you from an all in one.
Conclusion: Cette unité de navigation GPS présente l'avantage de couvrir toute l'Europe. Facile à installer dans sa voiture et à utiliser, le Roadmate 700 de Magellan permet une navigation à l'écran et vocale.
