retired tech, Amazon
30 January 2008
  • Summary: The unit works well and is usually accurate and reroutes you quickly enough. Magellan map updates are way behind and impossible to use.

Magellan ROADMATE 800 North America

F. J. Backer, Amazon
5 September 2007

Poor to very poor maps

Bought 2

Charles Haze, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • 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.

Watch Out

Alfred Bonagura, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: I Purchased the Magellan RoadMate800 in January 2006. After six months the power pin which is used to connect the recharge adapter to the unit failed. The unit was sent in for repair and returned. Now one year later, once again the power pin connection failed.

An adequate GPS for about 12-15 months

David B., Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: The good: This GPS will get you where you're going (eventually); an extensive points of interest database; maps of north america preloaded. The bad: Directions take you throught slow center of towns rather than finding bypasses, etc.
