Summary: I purchased this GPS approximately two years ago and have had to replace the 12V electrical cord and the back plane mount device already. I use the device while on vacation. Total times used while on maybe three dozen times. The external electrical connections are not very rugged.
Summary: Magellan Customer service is the worst customer service I have ever dealt with. They offer a free 30 day map update since all of their products ship with out of date maps. This would be a good thing except it is in the fine print of their products and their customer support email address that their...
Summary: This is an old unit. It's big. The operating system is slow. It will freeze every once in a while. Magellan is TERRIBLE about their map updating. Magellan has TERRIBLE offshore customer support.
Summary: Big, bulky, but not terrible. Unfortunately when I called the Customer Service people to say that all of the sudden, for no apparent reason it just doesn't work any longer, they said, "sorry, but there's nothing we can do.
Summary: Although you're looking at the Magellan 760, let me share with you my experiences with the Magellan 700. I have used the Magellan 700 to get from point A to point B. When it works (actually powers on), it will do the job. However, so will just about every other NAV unit on the market.
Summary: I am new to GPS, but have done a fair amount of research. I first bought the Tom Tom 700, but that was a DISASTER. You can read my nightmare experience on Amazon. The Magellen is so great, though, I'm actually glad the Tom Tom failed me!
Summary: I recentaly purchased the Magellan Roadmate 760. I did as much research as possible on various websites including customer reviews here on Amazon. As advertised, after a brief review of the start-up instructional pamphlet, you really can use this one, right out of the box.
Summary: I bought this product about a month ago and it works great. I'm amazed at all the information it provides. However, living in an older part of New England (Near Boston), there is constant road construction and reconfiguration.
Summary: I have been an owner of the Roadmate 300 for years before I upgraded to the Roadmate 760. The upgrade was a big one, in that the 760 has the maps for the entire U.S., and it says street names and it tells you where to go.
