Summary: Recently I bought a Magellan Roadmate 700. To test it, I took a road trip with my family from San Diego to Canada and back. Having never been on such a long road trip, I wanted to see how it performed in places we've never been before and had no idea how to get around.
Summary: I recieved the Magellan 700 as a Christmas gift this year. And overall, I am very satisfied with it. After reading many reviews online, and making many visits to the stores trying to decide on which brand and model to get, the Magellan 700 seemed to be the best in its class for the money.
Summary: I bought this device based (last month $569 now is $499)on the reviews here. I love it, however, there are some negatives I would like to add: 1.

Summary: As a Realtor, I have been able to show more homes without all the U-turns. All my clients just have to have one. It gets me to the location about 95% of the time.

Summary: Eversince I used the Hertz "Never lost" navigation system in a rental car, I have been wanting to own one but at that time it wasn't available in the market . I remember, with a GPS, how easy it was for me to reach my destinations in Houston metropolitan area. An area I had never been to before.
Summary: I purchased the 700 two weeks ago and have used it extensively on road trips from Connecticut to New Hampshire. The voice prompts are very good and accurate although I have found them to be announced a little early than expected.
Summary: Purchased the unit and have used extensively across the country. THE GOOD: - ease of use, no manual required (really), truly plug-n-play - GREAT unit for frequent travelers and car renters - it works, directs me well with ample and clear notice even in difficult cities with many turns (e.g.
Summary: I have had the RoadMate 700 for about 6 months. For the everyday user who simply wants to get from one place to another with a simple user interface, this is it. It incorporates the entire US street database self-contained within the unit.
Summary: Pro: *Easy to see upcoming turns. Screen layout changes to give you the best possible view. Bright, clear screen. Looks great at night and buttons are easy to see. *Voice prompts and chimes come at just the right times. Male and female voices don't sound "computerized." *Lots of tutorials built in.
