Summary: We had the GPS for quite a while with a minimal amount of problems. The plug in port bent but Rand McNally replaced it. We puchased the new TND720 and gave the TND700 to our driver. Well, our ex driver - he was technologically challenged and let the until hang off the dash on a trip from KY to TX. When I told him to secure it to the dash, he threw it in the storage department above the dash, thus the ex employee, I highly recommend the Rand McNally.
Summary: We got this GPS for my husband who is an (OTR) over the road trucker. Very Impressed with the shipping time, it arrived a few days earlier than expected... within a week of use however it started freezing up... could of just been a glitch in that unit. Worked great when it worked! Will work great for the normal person as well but does have the "trucker" option. (the big truck routes - tells you when a scale is coming up ect...
Summary: the GPS has a few important features like adudio speed alert or it knows what the speed limit is on a lot of the major roads.this keeps my speed where it should be neither too fast or slow.I use their map and set it to show all the roads so as to see approaching small towns and intersections.
Summary: Great software; horrible hardware. Replaced it with a 720. Best GPS program on the market for truck drivers,IMO, but Rand McNally "has no fix" for the excessive and early death rate on the 700 and 710. Still...it's a great program and I bought the 720. Hope they fixed the morbidity problem.....
Summary: I have owned two Rand McNally GPS devices over the last two years. Buyer beware! They are pieces of junk. The software is great, but the hardware does not last. The first GPS lasted a year. I spent another $400, that one lasted about 14 months. If you don't mind spending $400 a year for a GPS buy one. Otherwise do not buy it it is the worst and most expensive piece of junk I have ever bought. I still use my original GARMIN I purchased in 2006.
Summary: I bought this product to use primarily for work. I log 3200+ mile a week and thought this would be a good to tool to have. I love the graphics. There were a few times that it routed me thru some residential areas and a couple of times I wondered if a truck was even legal at all. I loved the feature where I could see if there was a truck stop or rest area close by though it does not have them all. My main concern or problem with this device is in the charging port.
Summary: Thought the unit was going to be a good unit, but was I wrong very wrong. The unit has a bad probleum with the 12 volty pulg in. They replaced the unit once in 6 months and the second unit last about 8 months before it started giving me trouble, but would they stand behind it NO NO NO. They said it had been over a year since I had bought the first unit so it was not covered. The person I talked with at the Tec centered knew very well what I was talking about.
Summary: I've had mine for a year and here's what we got. It tries to route be down non truck routes while telling me the truck route is illegal for me. This is such a bad problem that even Interstate 25 in Denver Colorado is listed (according to this GPS) as a non- truck route and will route you through the city instead. There are several drivers within our company who own one and more than half (of about 50) have crashed to an un-recoverable state.
