NEVER EVER AGAIN!!!

Karl D. Spoolman, Amazon
3 November 2005
  • Summary: I purchased this for my fiancee for Christmas(2005). The unit worked fine for about a month and a half to two months, and that's when the problems began. Suddenly, the unit would not come on at all, and it smelled like something inside of it had burned up.

  • Summary: I have had to return it twice since Sept 05 when I bought it and it was in their RMA system for a month both times. It is March 1st 2006 right now. I now think I need to return it yet again for a third different problem.

Own Two Roadmate 760's - Constant Repairs

Frederick N. Straughn, Amazon
3 November 2005
  • Summary: We own two RoadMate 760's and both have required repeated repairs. After three weeks, I got one back today and it came back just as I sent it out, useless. While it was supposedly being repaired, the second one stopped working. Tomorrow I need to send them both back for still another repair.

Magellan Road Mate

Stephen I. Jackson, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: DO NOT BUY A MAGELLAN As I am writting this review I am on hold with Magellan for the past hour and half. I have had the unit for just over 3 years and I at first I loved it and could not leave home without it. In the past year it has broken down 4 times and I have had to send it back each time.

Magellan would have been lost...

Jerry L. Shultz, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: Bought new Roadmate 700 in 2003 at Circuit City. Worked well until I upgraded this year with Roadmate 760. Locks up, difficult to obtain satellite signal, touch features do not work, etc. Worst problem is complete lack of support from Magellan (Thales Navigation).

In a word, UNRELIABLE!

C. Odogbili, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: this is the second 760 I've bought in one year. To be honest, I was never impressed with the functionality. Without the external antenna, it took me sometimes up to 30 minutes to get a signal. But what really angers me is that both units suddenly just stopped working and would not even power up.

Bad service support for Magellan RoadMate

Poroda, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: Do not trust Magellan Customer support, they do not have data access and do not care about Magellan reputation. I used Magellan RoadMate 700 for one day before smoke came out of the unit and it stopped working.

BAD MECHNICALS DESIGN

J. LI, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: I loved the it in the first year, because it is very easy to operate. But after one year the nightmare starting very soon, the bracket on back of the unit worn out, so the unit could not be hanged tightly like before. So I always have hard time to hang it on the wind shield.

John R. White, Amazon
2 November 2005
  • Summary: Oh my gosh... please don't buy this product. I owned one (roadmate 700) for 3 years... upgraded 3 times lastly to the 760.... then my truck was broken into and thankfully they took the GPS! They did me a favor! I purchased a Garmin Nuvi. I like it a whole lot better.
