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.
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????
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.
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.
Summary: The GPS instrument is a good one.However,the cradle is the worst I have seen.You need to periodically change it due to faults that keep cropping up.It is better to go for the later models and pass on this model.prefer not to get stuck with this...
Summary: What's GOOD: Relatively large touch screen, excellent street and destination database, very smart routing algorithms, nicely designed maneuver prompts. It really did change my life (while it was working). It was the most useful gadget I've encountered since the cellphone.
Summary: Be advised that a software update (version 5) is due out at the end of December 2005 or in January 2006 (according to Magellan customer service). I was told that the software will convert the 700 essentially to a 760, but you will have to pay for the update even if you recently purchased the 700...
Summary: I am on my fourth Megellan RoadMate 700. The first three all malfunctioned after a few months of daily use. I treat my electronics well, and the climate in San Diego is about as benign as it comes, so I honestly don't know why they are so prone to failure.
