Summary: The screen is definitely large enough. The maps are a little outdated. It'll cost about $40 to update. Not as many POI's as TomTom or Garmin. Cannot update POI's. Good GPS unit for the money. It'll get you from point A to point B. I would recommend it as long as your looking for a simple unit.
HORIBLE gps. do not buy. get garmin, tomtom, magelian, or mio instead.

Summary: bought 2 of these. owned for 2 yrs now. one after some time did the known issue of the locked screen and in chinese says "unauthorized". it will cost you the price of a new unit to get it fixed unless you bought it from an "authorized" reseller which most on ebay are not. i have found no known fix for this yet. it needs to be reflashed via usb. the maps are WAY out of date. they lag on when to turn and when you are at your destination.
Summary: Overall, this is a great product in terms on functionality vs price. The Copilot version 7 is a average GPS software but its maps are not as accurate and updated compared to most other GPS manufacturers. Version 8 is much better but not available for this unit. I bought this unit strictly for spare parts as my touch screen on my RW400 is not working. Taking it apart, I found it was the flat cable to the touch screen that went bad.
Summary: I would not purchase this item. Not well thought out. Felt like a beta version of something. Software is glitchy has very limited places pre-programmed. Most of all it is inaccurate; it will lead you down a parallel street. No reset button, once it decides not to load from the MB or chip you have to throw it away. Customer service can't help. You would have to send it back for $75.00. The few goods: it plays movies and music. Has a nice cradle.
Summary: I use the Rightway 400 GPS only for trips about once every two months. When the GPS is not in use, it is in the box in my home. In less than a year since purchase, or after about 6-12 days of use, the car cord failed. The warranty states "this product will be free from defects in workmanship and materials for one year from date of original purchase...'(page 54 user Manual). The warranty does not indicate the power cord has only a 3 month warranty.
Great little economical full featured GPS mobile unit.

Summary: Useful and handy as a shirt pocket. The internal battery lasts a pretty good while. Wish it lasted a bit longer. But, it's reasonably easy to use and is loud enough. It's a very good value. I've enjoyed mine so much that I bought one for my mom and dad's van. They love it.
