Magellan Roadmate 800

George R., Amazon
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

  • 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.

Good refurbished GPS

  • Summary: My one complaint was that the car charger cord was frayed in a number of places, and I am going to have to put some electrical tape on it to fix it. The owners manual w/ the system does not give nearly enough detail about the features, but it's pretty simple to figure out. I would recommend this piece, but I would definitely enhance the owner's guide, redesign the suction mount and replace the charger cord on refurbished pieces.
