If you want to go to NC, SC or OH - forget it!

29 September 2007
  • 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. It turns out I was within .5 miles of my turn, but the maps hadn't been updated on the unit. The new road system has been in place for nearly 5 years in that area.

RoadMate 800: Yes and No

T. Michon, Amazon
25 May 2006
  • Summary: I bought this unit specifically to navigate around New England during a 10 day vacation. I agree that the display brightness is terrific, the voice queues are great, and the unit is easy to figure out without reference to documentation. The mounting bracket works well and holds fast. While it took several minutes to initialize in Southern California, when I turned the unit on in Boston it immediately updated.

  • Summary: Amazing tool for getting around town or traveling, but needs better icon function - light weight and very portable.
  • Pros: Extremely easy to use, cutting edge features like SmartDetour & trip planner for multiple destinations.
  • Cons: icons only show up on 1/2 mile map scale - can't use on freeway
