  • Summary: I just got my roadmate today.... its a great product but it does have some bugs.... I live in New York and when i input an address for a few locations it doesnt take me to the exact address instead it took me a few blocks away on the same street.... maybe there is a bug that i have to update or somethin .... im gonna call magellan and find out.... but i tested out the intersection mapping mode and that seems to work great....

Great product, needs a few tweaks

Joan E. Hervey, Amazon

  • 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! The Magellens' BEST feature is the fact that IT ANNOUNCES THE STREET NAMES AND HIGHWAY NAMES as it directs you! If you've never experienced this feature on a GPS, it makes a universe of difference!

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. I noticed on one of my routes the RoadMate didn't know about a new traffic pattern. This is understandable, I know they can't upgrade the unit after its packaged and can understand it may take a couple months for a new update to come out.

So, do you really need this 760 or should you buy something else?

  • Summary: The 760 is a good unit, but make sure it is what you need before you spend over $500 on it!
  • Pros: Easy to use, needs no computer to hook up, works out of the box!
  • Cons: Can wash out in the sun, may lose the satellite signal!

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'. Within 24 hours my new Roadmate arrived (Thanks Amazon!). As with all the Roadmates it was a breeze to set up and get going. (One major bonus, no CD's to install).

  • Summary: Buy this GPS. If you travel often and alone, it is the safest way to use navigational assistance. It is reliable and accurate for major travel.
  • Pros: Accurate and reliable. Voice feature makes it hands free. Advance warnings on turns are timely.
  • Cons: Some database inaccuracy, Finding food or hotel by ICON not easy or friendly.

Good unit and UI, dated maps and POI's

  • Summary: Looking for auto-only GPS, easy-to-use, and can deal with dated maps, this is a good choice. If you want full featured and customizable GPS, keep looking.
  • Pros: Simplified UI. Bright touchscreen. Decent voice instruction.
  • Cons: Outdated maps & POI DB, Custom POI support, No partial name search.

  • Excerpt: I bought this unit because of my experience with the Hertz Neverlost system.
  • Pros: Extensive maps, very accurate, easy to use especially with touch screen
  • Cons: The mounting system is a long flexible piece that bounces and jiggles the unit.
