Summary: After a couple rental car uses on back to back trips to California for business I found the Magellan Hertz Never Lost system to be much more superior over the Garmin GPS used in other rentals. The Garmin made me hate GPS systems after using it. Garmin kept trying to route me on to interstate 101 everytime no matter where I was. Even if 101 was a hundred miles in the opposite direction of the destination address I input.
Summary: i recommend it to people who don't know there way in small places;its easy to use, its correct and all the functions u want it to do it does it, i am happy with it, and if for another chance i would have to buy another one i would buy another one;
Summary: Safest GPS - you do not need to look at the screen to see where to turn or to read street names. This GPS talks to you - tells you where to turn AND tells you the street name out loud. fantastic. slight error margin (new streets or streets which no longer cut thru), but overall very reliable.
Summary: The Magellan RoadMate has become quite affordable compared to a few years ago, and it still remains very powerful. Occasionally it will say a street address is in the wrong part of the street, but this seems to happen rarely, and is still pretty close to the actual address. This is also made up for by the ability to search (and receive directions) for parks, gas, and places to eat all while in-transit.
Summary: The product has some very good features, but the written documentation is poorly written and incomplete. Acquiring the GPS signal takes too long if you are in a hurry and can't sit still. Not sure if I will keep it.
Summary: I would recommend this GPS to anyone that is looking for the Top of Line Magellan Portable GPS with all the Bells anyone might need. Don't go any further than Amazon for the Very Best Price on the Internet.
Summary: Once you get past the abysmal instructions on how to use it, the unit works reasonably well. I have disagreed on numerous occasions with how to get from here to there, but the instructions would have been OK for someone not familiar with the area. Unit mounts well in my cars. Volume not loud enough to use ear pieces on my motorcycles. Am trying to hook sound into the cycle sound system.
Summary: This is my first navigational system, and after doing research I thought it would best fit my needs. So far it has done the job - the screen is comfortable to view and I love the turn by turn directions. I was looking at other models and find this has a good combination of features. It is very easy to use - would recommend it.
Summary: My first GPS was a Magellan 700M so I was comfortable with this new system. It's easy to learn and set up. The screen is big and easy to see when driving. Voices are clear. Best of all, it's easy to just pop it in your purse if you have to travel in a vehicle that lacks a GPS. I recommend it highly. However, although the system can work without it, the system should come with an external antenna. The external antenna, by the way, is difficult to connect and disconnect.
