Summary: This is one rugged and reliable mobile gps system.... This one is still working though slow but works properly but the harman kardon systems i bought gave up a long time ago and were not as nice as this one...
A great unit with many fine features at a reasonable price.

Summary: I had my vehicle burglerized and lost my RoadMate model 360. This model 800 was a demo unit and I had to remove the SD memory card before I could get it to function properly. I was finally able to get it to aquire 10-12 satellites and now it functions as it should. Now comes the task of adding my favorite destinations. I have stayed with Magellan units because the MFGs have carried their programming forward into newer units, so I did not have to re-learn programing.
Summary: first, i ordered 0n jan 28 and unit shipped 6 days later on feb 2!!. in this world thats pokey slo its fun to mess with wince stuff which is my reason i have a mag 1700 as well, big screen is nice
Summary: I already have Magellan RoadMate 760 and i travel long distances, never got lost.And i feel safe because most of the time i travel along.Magellan roadmate is the only partner when i am on the road alone.I bought magellan 800 for my daughter,she is in college about 3 hours drive for home.She loves this GPS.It is sample,easy to program and has 6,000,000 info.
Summary: I like repairing things. This was easy to repair and works great. This GPS is easy to use and has all the maps pre istalled. It gives you all the information you need such as the points of interest, gas stations, motels places to eat, rest areas and allows you to use the back roads or the interstates. It has a battery so it can be portable if you want it to be.
