Summary: This works fine, and is OK to use, but I have had some other GPS map finders in rental cars that are spectacular by comparison. I got this because AAA sells them, but in all I am disappointed.
Summary: The unit works well and is usually accurate and reroutes you quickly enough. Magellan map updates are way behind and impossible to use. I purchased the latest update from them when it became available in the 4th quarter 2007 and the update is dated 3rd quarter 2006 - plus now that installation has...
Summary: This unit has worked well since I bought it about six months ago. However, it does seem to have some heat related problems and shut down several times on a trip in 90 degree plus weather. Last week I tried to unlock the international maps and the web site would not allow orders.

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.
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: 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.
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.
