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: 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: 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: This thing is *awesome*. We bought this after getting lost last year going to a dog show in Northern VA - Mapquest really got us screwed up. Just getting from our home to the show site was a nightmare - after 7 hours of what should have been a 3.5 hour drive, we gave up until the next morning. We swore this year would be different - and it was. Magellan got us not only to the show site, but to our breeder's home and the hotel - all before sunset!
Summary: The worries of getting lost are all over now. I used to get lost by trying to figure out maps and drive at the same time. Used to pass my exits all the time and had to go back. Not anymore. This is a great item to have if you travel alot. I spent months trying to figure out which gps to buy and the 860t model is worth it. It is great because it tells you when to turn in advance that way yo can adjust your car to take the turn.
