Great product, needs a few tweaks

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 March 2007
  • 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!

Great Product, Questionable Service & Support

Kindle Customer, Amazon
24 November 2006
  • 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.

This was an upgrade from the 300, both are great.

Amazon Customer "Gadgeteer", Amazon

  • 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.

Good if your new to Magellan GPS but don't bother upgrading

Stephen G. Bialecki "Steve B.", Amazon
25 April 2006
  • Summary: For the past year and a half I've had the Magellan Roadmate 500 and have never had any problems or complaints with it. Recently I purchased a new car (WITHOUT the costly $2000 navigation) and thought it may be nice to upgrade to the 760 for the new features...primarily the 'text to speech feature'.

My Favorite New Toy

Michael L. Andrews, Amazon
8 January 2006
  • Summary: I've only had this unit a few weeks, but I already love it. As a traveling salesman I relied heavly on the Hertz Neverlost and bought this unit because I figured the learning curve would be easy; and it was.

Almost Perfect

Ed K. "Ed", Amazon
12 October 2005
  • Summary: I bought this a few weeks ago and used it on a trip to Vermont - extensively in VT while locating covered bridges. The most serious flaw is in identifying the destination - and without a destination that fits the 760's criteria you are dead in the water.

760 used for exporing rural area

A. A. foote, Amazon
30 September 2005
  • Summary: I like using the Magellan 760 for exploring roads. This is a difficult task, because the 760 has another purpose entirely: it is meant to target a specific destination. I sometimes use the suction cup and run this GPS in my field of vision above the radio and think this makes sense for interstate...

One lemon, one star so far

P.J. Plauger, Amazon
8 August 2005
  • Summary: The first unit I got died within 15 minutes. Three weeks later, I got it back "repaired". (The support guy muttered something about a "loose cable, which happens sometimes.") It lasted three hours.

Great Unit at a SUPER price.

New gps user "GPS", Amazon
8 August 2005
  • Summary: My friend works at Best Buy and bought one with an employee's discount. The price for the Roadmate 760 was less than a brand new Roadmate 700. Incredible. Anyway, the unit locked in to the satellites in less than a minute. Typed in a location and the unit calculated it in seconds.
