Best Decision

This GPS was the best investment for the price. It's one of the best GPS made. I will order again from CARiD.

Whopping big 7" display
2011 Suzuki Kizashi
| Posted by | (Norwalk, CT)

I decided I needed a GPS when I got a job assignment that required traveling to various different stores in the southern California area. All I had to do was enter the address of the hotel or store I needed to go to and the GPS told me exactly how to get there. Any GPS could have done this I suppose, but the RM1700 was the only one with a whopping big 7" display. The last thing you need to be doing while driving down the freeway at 65mph is stare at a tiny display. With just a quick glance at this device, I can get everything I need to know.

My second RoadMate
2005 Nissan Titan
| Posted by | (Sundance, WY)

I purchased this to replace my RoadMate 1425 that died and I love the 1700 LM! The big screen is great and easy to use as well as easy to see! The volume is nice and loud and seems to be accurate with directions.

Love this huge 7" screen
2013 Cadillac SRX
| Posted by | (Punta Gorda, FL)

The Magellan is so much easy to see because of its much larger size. The menu is simple to navigate and it includes the AAA travel guide, which we have used in book form for years. Street names are presented in easy-to-read-at-a-glance fonts, for those of us who actually look at the GPS while driving. The screen is bright enough to be easily read, even through dark sunglasses. Also, I like the auto turn-to-night feature, which changes the screen colors to suit nighttime driving. And I love the big screen! I plan to buy a portable DVD player for my wife for Christmas and the Magellan will accept composite video from the player and give us two screens if we choose (but not while driving).

I love it
2001 Buick Le Sabre
| Posted by | (Lockport, IL)

Have just used it for one day and love it. Beautiful display, very intuitive, the screen is very sensitive to the touch, voice instructions are loud and clear, and just the right amount, routing was right on, it really looks good thus far. In the coming weeks, I'll really wring it out on an extended trip across America (what I bought it for) and may report more.

Great 7" navigator
| Posted by | (San Jose, CA)

I bought this because I was interested in a larger display. We use it in a motorhome and both of us like to be able to see the GPS. Not so easy with a typical 3.5" unit. We previously owned a Magellan unit and were happy with it but wanted a larger display.
