Excerpt: Industry leading turn-by-turn GPS Navigation is yours with the Magellan Roadmate 800 – a talented device featuring GPS technology brought to you by the creators of Hertz NeverLost. In addition to providing state-of-the-art satellite navigation, the Magellan Roadmate 800 GPS Navigator is loaded with detailed street maps for the U.S. and Canada and 6 million pre-loaded points of interest – from gas stations to ATMs, restaurants, airports, hotels – you name it.
Conclusion: The RoadMate 800 offers all the features that a road warrior could want. I could not think of a single feature that I would want that this device did not provide, in fact it provided a couple features that I would never use. I highly recommend it for anyone that is on the road a lot and often in unfamiliar territory. Because it is portable it would even be good for someone who flys and rents cars to get around.
