Summary: The model I bought is intended for USA and Canada, to "convert" it to Europe model seems possible through software update, but then all maps were gone. Had to install the USA/Can software to get it back to normal. Magellan does not offer map updates and support for this anymore, and to unlock the European maps is very expensive, it will not be worth it at all. Magellan sees units older than 5-6 years as "legacy units" which means they want them to be gone and done with.
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.
Summary: Positives: The 700 series is very easy to setup and use in the vehicle. Negatives: No Battery, cannot be used outside the vehicle. We decided to buy because we have used the RoadMate 700 before. We "Upgraded" to a newer GPS and have never liked it as much. The 700 series is easier to use and has better directions/graphics.
Summary: This is by far the best early GPS. It was very expensive when i purchased it. It has park and school labeled. The newer GPS does not support this feature. I also like the way it prompt you before the turn, The only bad thing about this unit is that it takes forever to sync with the satellite. Other than that flaw i think i would still keep it. It takes 15-30 minutes to get GPS sync.
Summary: I was going on a long trip to a place, I had never been before. I wanted a little extra security and the magellan roadmate helped. Their was some routes not on the program. But, they where new routes and the magellan was an older model. Their was no problems due to that issue. Thank you Lamona B.
Summary: We took this to Arizona for a vacation and it did not get us lost in the desert. It is easy to operate and very accurate with the information it has. Good buy for under $50. I don't like that I have to pay almost $80 for an update for the maps.
