Has all your basic functions, works reliably

scarlejr, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this item used simple because it was so damn cheap. It has been working great! Has all the basic features I have seen in every other gps, and the side part with the buttons may seem odd but it's very handy!! Things I like. -The rubber stand is nice and simple and works great. -You can change voice to male, female, and UK male, UK female.

Magellan RoadMate 700

soylindo144, Ebay

  • Summary: The user interface for this GPS is pretty good. It is touchscreen, has 3 users to set up but the only thing I didn't like was their website to get updates. It is not user-friendly. After navigating a while to find the update, you have to pay for it???? This is why I give this device an average rating. The device itself is good, but the support blows.

Buy a Tom Tom

rick_clmbs_ga, Ebay

  • Summary: I bought this for my oldest sons birthday. I did not know a lot about these systems. If I did, I would not have bought this one. Slow to locate satellite. Unit does not charge it has to be plugged in at all times. It could not find his home address, one of the oldest neighborhoods in my city. It looks good and works well, just a disappointment in the above areas. They just happen to be critical areas. Can't find his house? The whole point is starting there!

Magellan Roadmate 700 GPS Navigation System

Overstock
28 March 2008
  • Summary: I've had the Magellan roadmate 700 GPS for over 2 years and find it's features great. But, I found lots of problems with the system. The satalite doesn't always work with this system. If you have an EZ-pass sometimes it the system can't find your location because the EZ-pass effects the GPS's sense of direction. Our Megellan 700 takes 20 minutes to find where we are. The features are great once it locates where we are.

Magellan 700 gps receiver

luis27865, Ebay
15 December 2007
  • Summary: I bought this gps two month ago what I don't like about this gps is that no matter what it always take the long way and if you need to make an upgrade is to expensive another point is that it take to long to tell you when to make the turn. That way you miss a lot of turns, that's my opinion and I hope it help you to make a good decision if you plan to buy one of this.
