Great for the price


This is my first gps, and I shopped all around for a good deal wanted to get a good starter unit for a gps new comer and am very pleased so far with this. I've gone to about 10 or so different locations so far that I havn't had a clue how to get there...

Great 4.3'' wide screen at half the price of the garmin or tomtom units. Its very fast and responsive, reroutes quickly, starts up and acquires a signal very quickly as well

The touch screen is a bit slow/less responsive than expected, but honestly its not that horrible. My biggest con, which almost had me take off an egg..was the fact it didn't come with the usb mini connector cable you need to sync it to your computer...

Magellan Roadmate GPS


Excellent product for the value. It is very easy to operate and clearly displays all pertinent trip information. This product was 'refurbished', however I could not find anything that might indicate that it was ever used. It seemed to be in flawless...

This one is less expensive and still does what you need it to do. Tells you what to do instead of reading directions
