Bought 2

  • 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: Well, it GOT me to SC, but couldn't find half of the addresses I needed to go to. The POI selection is also quite limited. When I got to NC it was worse. I was driving up and down one section of hwy 70 for 30 minutes. I finally stopped and asked directions.

  • Summary: We recently relocated and I received this as a gift a few years ago and I will say that it is nice. I feel much safer knowing this is in the car with me. I will say these are much better than navigating a map while driving. The mp3 player on this unit is basically unusable.

  • Summary: At the recommendation of a friend we both bought a Magellan RoadMate 800 GPS primarily for getting local driving directions. The GPS worked well for me in providing the information I needed at the time.

Poor to very poor maps

V. DAngelo, Amazon
6 April 2007
  • Summary: This is an easy to use GPS system and could have been good to excellent except for the fact that the map that comes with it is at least 4 years old. I tried to find out about updates but Magellan does not answer there customer service Email.
