Summary: I have owned 2 of these and both have just stopped working. I really like having buttons instead of a touch screen because if you use this for work like i do your hands can get really dirty and touching a screen is the last thing i want to do, at least the buttons are easier to clean.
Summary: Large compared to modern gps's but friendly and easy to use. Good satellite reception, portable and with a loud, clear sounding speaker which makes it easy to hear the directions over driving noise. Truly a find with these features at this price point! You will not be disappointed.
Summary: I will NEVER buy another magellan. We switched to Tom Tom within a month or 2 of buying this one. The directions were always late and delayed, and usually incorrect. The maps (even when updated) we rarely accurate.
Summary: This is one rugged and reliable mobile gps system.... This one is still working though slow but works properly but the harman kardon systems i bought gave up a long time ago and were not as nice as this one....hurray for magellan
A great unit with many fine features at a reasonable price.

Summary: I had my vehicle burglerized and lost my RoadMate model 360. This model 800 was a demo unit and I had to remove the SD memory card before I could get it to function properly. I was finally able to get it to aquire 10-12 satellites and now it functions as it should.
Summary: first, i ordered 0n jan 28 and unit shipped 6 days later on feb 2!!. in this world thats pokey slo its fun to mess with wince stuff which is my reason i have a mag 1700 as well, big screen is nice
Summary: Don't waste your money with this unit. There are no updated maps available nor will there be in the future. I bought this unit for over $600.00 in 2006. One map update was released in 2007 and that's the end, according to Magellan support.
Summary: Had to give a rating so gave it 1 star - would have preferred to leave it at 0. The only thing worse than their product is their customer service. You won't be able to talk with anyone in the US. The 800 number is direct to India.
Summary: What I love about this device is 1. The battery 2. The voice 3. The navigation and POI's (Points of interest) 4. The dedicated buttons 5. The ability to store quite a few addresses 6. The large included internal hard drive with plenty of extra room for my songs pictures and information. 7.
