Magellan Roadmates 700 and 800

Canoe Traveler, Amazon
22 June 2007
  • Summary: I own both a Roadmate 700 and a Roadmate 800. I bought the 800 after I had used the 700 for a couple of years and had it in for repairs (it stopped picking up the satellites). Both units have worked well (hence the 4 star rating), but I have been dissatisfied with Magellan's customer service.

Works like Hertz

Big Dave, Amazon
24 January 2007
  • Summary: The unit looks and sounds like the Hertz Never Lost unit. The windshield mount is long, and other mounting options should be explored. The unit is hard to see in the sun glare. It finds directions well.

Good, but could be better

Stuart Godwin Jr., Amazon
18 January 2007
  • Summary: On the good side - it does the job quite well. Good graphics. Clear verbal instructions. On the bad side: There were times when it seemed to believe that my vehicle was about 90 to 100 feet behind its actual position.

Could be better, but very good value for $$$

Ivan Ivanoff, Amazon
22 November 2006
  • Summary: I was looking for something to put in my commuter car, since I like built-in GPS in my other car. It seems that many folks do like Garmin or TomTom but here are my pros and cons after using it a bit: Pros: 1.

Magellan 800 vs 760 and Dash Mounting for 800.

Zavier I. Padayatty, Amazon
1 July 2006
  • Summary: One of my friends visited my house from Las Vegas and told me that he had Magellan 300 and it was very useful in getting him to the destination. I found a sale price for Magellan 800 and bought it. So far I am very pleased with the purchase. I was comparing 800 and 760.

love it!

Robert G. Lyons, Amazon
28 June 2006
  • Summary: great unit with maps more up-to-date that friends' OEM units costing $1800+. and amazon's pricing of the 800 makes it less that what most others want for 700-series. my only complaint is the external antenna isn't included in this package.

Exceptional perfomance that was beyond expectations.

Book Worm, Amazon

  • Summary: After using this gps I was very impressed with it's operation and how easy it is to navigate without even watching the display. I was able to plug it in my 2 story house and it tracked the satellites with no problem.

Finding your Way in the World

Joel J. Reznick, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: Everyone should have one of these - you never again have to ask directions - no matter where you are. It takes you from any point "A" to any point "B" - just enter the destination in the address book, punch "route" and you're on your way! I can never be without it anymore.

Great GPS at a decent price!

Vinny, Amazon
17 March 2006
  • Summary: I love the unit. I purchased the Road Mate 800 with the Li-Ion battery. I didn't plan on using the MP3 or picture viewer features but I decided to buy this model only because it came with a battery. This helps with programming or if you're at a hotel and don't want it plugged in.
