simple GPS

mimi*doll, Ebay
9 January 2011
  • Summary: I like the size, voice quality, and price. I do not like the fact that does not have all the newer roads in Atlanta, I cannot erase previous destinations, it will not connect to my computer to update with the cable included. It is probably an ESO problem - Equipment Superior to Operator. It is all I need, though, and for the price, I am quite happy.

Magellan RoadMate 700 GPS - GREAT!

topcat, Ebay
11 December 2008
  • Summary: I enjoy driving and traveling to new locations, by my sense of direction sometimes fails me, especially when traveling city streets instead of major highways. And, even if I am on the RIGHT road, I sometimes need that little assurance of seeing the street name - to be certain that my mind has not wandered away at the last intersection and a turn was missed...

Great unit, but don't buy one!

smahmoud, Ebay

  • Summary: The Magellan RoadMate 700 was a breakthrough when it came out, well worth the roughly $1000 I paid for my first one. It's all the more impressive now that you can have one for well under $100. Pluses: The unit has built-in maps of the entire USA (and Canada, I think). That means it's plug-and-go. Attach a suction cup, plug into the cigarette lighter, and you're ready to navigate.

Reliable GPS does the Job

bigschuck, Ebay
5 April 2008
  • Summary: This GPS does exactly what I need it to do, get me from point A to point B throughout the day. Does it have it's quirks, sure. For instance, sometimes when a street changes names, it states it as a turn. Not a huge deal though, if you look up, you can see the routing and realize it's just a road name change. Haven't had it for that long, so I'm not sure if it has this feature, but it would be nice if you could look things up by zipcode as opposed to city or town.

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 RoadMate 700 stacks pretty well.

formandanalysis, Ebay
9 January 2008
  • Summary: I own 2 GPS devices...one, the Magellan Roadmate 700, and the other, the TomTom Limited Edition (I gave right at $125 for the TomTom) The Magellan is a little bulkier-but pretty well built. Not as many bells and whistles as the TomTom, but basically still in the same ball-park. I like the fact that the Magellan corporation took the time to think through everything one might want (frills) to go with the device...and included them in the package deal.

GPS unit

allr4me, Ebay
1 January 2008
  • Summary: Dear Friends, Having a GPS unit is a must for all motorists. I had sent an identical GPS unit to the repair station and purchased my second Gps from Ebay as a back up,the cost was less than the repair cost, I now have two working. The price was right and could not turn it down. These units seem to go awry when least expected. I would never leave home without one.

Good product

Overstock
11 December 2007
  • Summary: Good product. Took time to caliberate, but once it did, it worked just fine. Good-sized monitor. Well defined, good colors. I found same model on other web sites for almost half of what I paid, but all this is canceled out by the great service; came exactly two days later as I specified, well packed and exactly as described. Considering when it was made, I believe I can live with some of the shortcomings of this model, nothing that takes away that much from it.
