Magellan RoadMate 800

GeorgeR., Rate it all!
5 July 2008
  • Summary: Maps were not perfect. I needed European maps and was appaled at the price tag of dowload. It would be cheaper to buy a new device with European maps than downloading them. Works well mostly but can freeze if you press a few commands in a row. Good screen and battery life. I never used the storage capacity for pictures or music.

Clunky and fragile

abikerbob, Ebay
2 March 2008
  • Summary: The Magellan RoadMate™ 800 Car GPS Receiver is a very nice unit as has been all the Roadmates. I own all. The 800 is an excellent performer but a bit heavy and has a fragile antenna and power plug. It does have a 3 hour rechargable battery. It also features an mp3 player and picture viewer that cannot be used while navigating.

800 vs 760

Dr. P. LAW, Amazon
21 February 2008
  • Summary: I have been doing a lot of research to decide between 760 and 800. It turns out that 800 comes with features that I cannot use while driving, such as MP3 and picture viewer. It does come with battery which I think is good to have. The main difference that 760 has and 800 doesn't is 760 announce the name of street that you turn into. This is a absolutely must have feature in my view. I bought 760 in Feb, 2006 and have been loving it ever since.

More features less features

RS Blum "science fiction writer", Amazon
21 February 2008
  • Summary: The 800 is built tough with a flashy exterior that likes up with blue buttons to make it easy to see at night. It is all the the Hertz Neverlost is, well, almost. Unlike the lesser cousins like the 760, this new 800 gives you a battery, memory slot, and tunes-on-the-go in exchange for no longer supporting the SayWhere text-to-speech technology that reads you the name of the street you are going to turn on!
