DO NOT BUY !!!

methoxy_11, Ebay
4 June 2008
  • Summary: Pros: I have yet to find one. Cons: This is an obsolete model with very old maps, perhaps 6-7 year old. Manufacturer does not provide any support, upgrading the maps is more expensive than a new GPS itself, of the same brand.

DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!

RichBoston, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this due to its price. I immediately encountered outdated maps. No problem - just download the update from the website right? Right - for $99!! They sell me an outdated semi useless device and want me to pay $99 to update to what it should have been when I bought it? I don't think so.

Could cause an accident

KTL, Amazon
28 January 2006
  • Summary: I've owned this unit for almost a year. And I can say it will get you to your destination, it's easier to use than it's competitor, and the voice is soothing, but that's all the positives. Now for the negatives. The windshield mount is a joke.

Antenna Sucks

WDM, Amazon
6 November 2005
  • Summary: Very slow start-up (sometimes 5-10 minutes to acquire a signal.) This is incredibly annoying when you need to get somewhere and must pull over and wait several minutes for directions. Five minutes seems like an eternity when you're running late.

Amagingly Slow

S. Luk, Amazon
1 July 2005
  • Summary: It takes minutes to find its position. I once drove from Sacramento, CA to San Francisco, CA. With the open sky in the central California Valley, the Magellan found its position when I passed Stockton, CA (50 minutes after the trip started).

Multiple problems, not worth the money...

Amazon
26 June 2004
  • Summary: I decided to go with the Roadmap 700 at the end of April, and I have had nothing but problems with it and the manufacter. It takes at least 30 minutes to get a lock on a position. I live 30 miles north of Boston in a major metro area!! The screen will lock up at times and not move for 20-30 minutes.
